Pizza Hut's motivation revealed.

Adland:

Clayton found the why: Black Family Sues Pizza Hut - Thirteen members of a family are suing the operator of a Pizza Hut for $2 million, alleging they were refused service because they are black.

Colonial Foods LLC maintains that employees tried to explain to the family that they couldn't be served because the restaurant had run out of cheese and couldn't make any more pizzas.

"It was a cheese issue, not a race issue," said Tim McConville, an attorney for the company.

We still want to know, where did the cheese go , and this trial may help shed some light on the matter.
