Earlier this week, a dangerous situation unfolded in a Minnesota McDonalds. The incident involved a white male and a group of African-American Muslim teenagers.

According to reports, a white male, who has now been identified as 55-year-old Lloyd Edward Johnson. allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened the group of teenagers. In the video footage, the man is seen screaming at the teens and accusing them of touching him.

The McDonald's manager handled the situation horribly. The manager screamed at the teens to get out of the store despite watching them get threatened with a gun.

16-year old, Farida Osman was one of the teens in the group. She recorded and uploaded the video to Twitter.

In a three-part thread, Osman tweeted about the incident and included the video clip she took. She then demanded to know if McDonald's stands by the racist and reckless behavior displayed by the manager.

"@McDonalds is this what you stand for? We were just trying to order when this man said racist remarks, claimed to be touched (when really he pushed a kid as seen on video) pulled a gun out on kids and you still kick us out knowing we’re in danger?" ~ tweeted Farida

She also sent the viral video footage to the police. On Wednesday, one day later, the Minnesota police arrested Lloyd Edward Johnson from Eden Prairie.

According to reports, a white male, who has now been identified as 55-year-old Lloyd Edward Johnson. allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened the group of teenagers.

In a statement, the Eden Prairie police department said Johnson was arrested "under probable cause for second-degree assault." His case has been referred to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office for sentencing.

Johnson was denied bail and is currently in the Hennepin County jail's website.

In an interview after the event, Osman revealed she believes the reason Johnson had picked the fight had racial roots. "I think it’s because we were black and Muslim," Farida said. "I've had people being racist towards me before, but I've never had a gun pulled on me until now."
