J.CO Donuts Releases Official Statement, Apology On “Discrimination” Issue

Yesterday, we shared the experience of Noelle Dolor, who experienced alleged discrimination while falling in line at a popular donut shop’s branch in Greenbelt, Makati City. Noelle’s story earned the ire of various netizens over the supposed preferential treatment of foreigners over Pinoys in their own land.

There is of course more than one side to a story, and we are glad to air J.CO Philippines’ side on the incident, as they shared their official statement with WhenInManila.com. As per the statement, J.Co Philippines has contacted the aggrieved parties, conducted an investigation on the incident, and meted out sanctions on the employees, as seen in the full statement below.
