A black Burger King employee who went on a racist rant against a Hispanic couple she assumed was white didn’t have it her way after she was terminated from her fast food job last month.
The shocking dispute broke out between the employee and a man and woman waiting in a North Miami Beach Burger King drive-thru October 3. The cellphone video has since gone viral.
It seems the customers requested a refund for their order after a manager touched her phone while handling their food.
The employee, unwillingly to work with the pair, shamed them for being white, although they are not.
She shouted at the pair, who had a crying baby in the car: ‘F*** you, you white piece of s**t… how about that? F*** you.’
The woman in the car said: ‘We’re not even white… we’re Hispanic. Get it right’ before another worker next to the angry employee slammed the drive-thru window shut.
The defiant worker opened the window again and called the woman a ‘fat b****’ and f***ing wh***.’
The female customer fired an insult back: ‘I don’t care… at least I’m not working at Burger King.’
Further infuriated, the employee added: ‘I don’t care. B****, I have two parents, I go to school… this job, the money I make, is to blow up. So it don’t matter.’
The male customer told the employee the refund request had nothing to do with her, and insisted she had no reason to be fired-up over the matter.
He said: ‘It has nothing to do with you. I don’t even know why you’re getting upset.’
The other Burger King worker at the window said little to nothing during the incident. It’s unclear whether she is the manager.
The other worker also calmly agreed to refund the customers.
The since-terminated employee encouraged the pair to post the video of her making the hateful comments, believing nothing would come out of it.
The woman in the car asked: ‘Are you threatening to kill me?’ The employee replied: ‘Did you hear me say that?,’ before the video concluded.
A Burger King spokesperson told the Miami Herald Monday: ‘The actions of this team member do not reflect the values of the Burger King brand.
‘We have a zero tolerance policy for this type of behavior, and the individual is no longer with the company.’
