A new episode of "What Would You Do?," airing Friday, June 15 (9:01-10:01 p.m. EDT), reflects recent stories leading the news cycle including the report of an IHOP waitress in Maine asking black teenagers to prepay for their meal and the Supreme Court ruling that sided with a Colorado baker who declined to make a wedding cake for a gay couple.

"What Would You Do?" with anchor John Qui�ones reveals how people behave when they think no one is watching by using hidden cameras to record people's real reactions to thought-provoking scenarios created by actors.

Friday, June 15, scenarios include:

· A group of young black teenagers sit down for a meal at a restaurant and are asked to prepay for their meal. When they start to question why, an employee says that the restaurant has experienced problems in the past with people "like them" skipping out on the bill. How will other diners react?

· A lesbian couple tries to purchase a wedding cake at a bakery but is denied because the owner says gay marriage contradicts his religious beliefs. What will others in the bakery say? (Rebroadcast. ABC OAD: 7/12/13)

· A mother and child are grocery shopping when the mother starts forcing her child to shoplift. What will witnesses say? Will they step in?

· A woman is browsing through cookbooks in a bookstore when she starts to rip recipe pages out of the books without paying. What will the witnesses say and do? Will they try to stop the customer from stealing these pages?

· Young boys in a clothing store start picking on another boy wearing a weathered outfit for not being able to afford nice shoes. They make fun of his hand-me-downs and shame him because he can't afford many items in the store. Will other shoppers come to the child's defense?

Ethan Nelson is the executive producer of "What Would You Do?" for Lincoln Square Productions.
