Once again the world's most popular fast food restaurant has been the scene of an unpleasant incident of racial discrimination.
The incident occurred at a McDonald's franchise in Spring Hill, Florida, and was the culmination of an altercation between an employee and a customer at a drive-thru.
"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."
A McDonald's customer identified as Zacch Barnes filmed an employee's racist rant through the drive-thru window, and the clip went viral.
In the clip, Barnes is saying repeatedly that the employee called him the "N" word, to which he finally responds by yelling:
"I don't care... don't give a f**k n***er."
Barnes responded by telling the McDonald's employee that he had filmed the incident and that they would be fired.
A Twitter user responded to the video by posting a clip which supposedly depicts Barnes' actions before the McDonald's employee's rant.
In the rebuttal video, Barnes is seen to insult the employee through the window, calling him a "faggot."
A female voice is calling the police and describing him, saying that he had threatened the McDonald's night manager.
The owner of the franchised restaurant, Javier Illas, issued a public statement stating that the employee's behavior was "improper and unacceptable", and declaring that the man was no longer employed at McDonald's.
This is one of many recent racially tainted incidents that seem to be plaguing the nation, with dozens of reports coming in daily from around the country.
