The Atlanta Black Star has posted a video showing a white customer at a McDonald’s in St. Petersburg, Florida viciously grabbing a worker over what appears to have been a botched order.
At the very start of the video, the white man can be seen reaching across the counter and grabbing the black woman who had taken his order. After he drags her halfway over the counter, she pulls back and starts hitting him in an attempt to break free.
At this point, other workers intervene and successfully separate the two — but they let the white customer stay in the store even though he aggressively attacked one of their colleagues.
The manager then walks over and, rather than telling the customer to leave, checks his order to see what might have gone wrong.
When the woman walks back over in the direction of the counter, the white customer points to her and tells the manager, “I want her ass fired, right now!”
“No, you’re going to jail!” the woman shouts back at him.
“I was just asking you a f*cking question!” he complained.
Watch the video below.

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’
Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.
In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"
The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.
Mueller probably won’t be giving new information — here’s why that can still sink Trump
Former special counsel Robert Mueller will appear in Congress this week to testify for two hours about the report he authored on the case of Russian collusion.
The hearing is set for Wednesday, though Mueller has said that he won't have any additional information other than what is in his report. A Washington Post report used examples of past Mueller testimony to outline what can be anticipated. The reality, however, is that regardless of whether Mueller sticks to the report or not, he'll deliver enough to put the president in a difficult situation.
‘He has a lot of vitriol for them’: Omarosa says Trump has a particular ‘disdain’ for women of color
Omarosa Manigault Newman revealed in an interview Sunday that President Donald Trump has a very serious problem when it comes to women of color.
She was asked if she ever heard Trump tell a white person to "go back" to their country of origin. She said she's never heard it in all of hear years on "The Apprentice," during the campaign or at the White House.
"He reserves that only for people of color," she said. "You’ll notice, Rev, that he particularly has a lot of animosity and disdain for women of color. From Maxine Waters, to myself, to reporters who criticize him who are women of color. He has a lot of vitriol for them."
