INDIANAPOLIS, In. —

A hair stylist from Indianapolis, Indiana is receiving severe internet backlash after complaining about a woman she says ruined her New Year's Eve dinner by having a heart attack.

Holly Jones took to the Facebook page of  Kilroy's Bar N' Grill where she was eating dinner on New Year's Eve to slam the staff for telling her that 'someone dying was more important then (sic) us.'  According to the Daily Mail, Jones thought that the woman in her 70's was a junkie having an overdose.

Her complaint reads in part:
'I will never go back to this location for New Year's Eve!!! After the way we were treated when we spent $700+ and having our meal ruined by a watching a dead person being wheeled out from an overdose my night has been ruined.'

Jones apparently  did not realize that the woman became ill while she was celebrating the New Year with her husband and son.

After posting her rant to the bar's Facebook page, manager Chris Burton responded calling her attitude 'disgusting.'

"Thanks for reaching out! We love feedback, whether it be positive or negative. I especially like feedback like this so others can see the disgusting people that we have to deal with sometimes. First of all, the "overdosing junkie" that you speak of was a 70+ year old woman who had a heart attack. Thankfully she was finally revived at the hospital and survived. It sounds like you were very concerned about  her so I thought you should know. This poor lady, who was celebrating New Years Eve with her husband and son, had to be placed on the floor of a completely packed bar and have her shirt removed in front of everyone so the paramedics could work on her. But I can completely understand why you think being intoxicated ***holes that didn't understand your bill should take priority over human life. I especially appreciate you making your server (who doesn't curse) cry as well. I'm sure she really enjoyed working on New Year's Eve just to deal with people such as yourself. I personally had to leave a show to take a phone call from an emotional manager telling me someone died at Kilroy's and that other employees were not doing so well dealing with this. (At the time they didn't know that she was going to make it.) So I understand how inconvenient this was to your night. But honestly, I'm glad to hear you won't be coming back to Kilroy's because we wouldn't want anyone as cold hearted and nasty as you returning. I appreciate anyone who chooses to spend their money at Kilroy's until they act like you. You can take your money anywhere else after that, and I won't lose a second of sleep over it. Happy New Year!"
 

Kilroy's Facebook page has been flooded with positive comments, complimenting Burton for sticking up for his staff and his customers. 

Jones' employer, Serenity Salon, has received calls for her to be fired. The salon responded in a post stating 'We take our reputation seriously and this does not align with our code of conduct or the expectations we have for our staff, booth renters or any members of our team.'

Jones has reportedly received hate messages and death threats. She appears to have deleted her own personal Facebook account too. 

A GoFundMe page has been started by the heart attack victim's daughter, Tohnna Wymer, to help pay for her medical bills.

 'She is in critical care ICU at IU Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis,' Wymer wrote on the fundraising website.

Jones claims through friends that someone hacked her account and she is not responsible for the rude post.
