A McDonald’s employee was fired after he was seen on video calling a Black customer the N-word.
Zacch Barnes, the customer, filmed the employee using the racial slur toward him through the fast-food chain’s drive-thru window in Spring Hill, Florida, last week.
In the video, which starts mid-confrontation, Barnes can be heard yelling, “’You just called me a n*gger,” while a female employee can be seen on the phone with the police.
Barnes continues saying that he was called the racial slur, when the male employee says, “I don’t care… don’t give a f**k n*gger.” Barnes told them that they would get fired when the male employee continued, “I will f**k you up, you f***ing n*gger.”
In a statement Monday to the Washington Post, franchise owner Javier Ilias of McDonald’s Spring Hill location confirmed that the employee was fired.
“I am aware of the incident involving one of my employees earlier this week. The disturbance with the customer prompted our management team to call the police right away; and we did an immediate investigation on this matter. This behavior goes against the values and standards that I expect from employees in my restaurants. This employee displayed improper and unacceptable conduct and is no longer with the company.”
