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.
