Burger King Employee in Lake Charles Fired After Video Goes Viral [UPDATE]
Last week, my friend Donecia posted a fascinating video showing an unhappy customer and an even more unhappy employee at a Burger King in Lake Charles. Well, it turns out the employee has, since, been fired.
It all started when a customer received a shake and was not impressed. She went to the counter and asked for a refund, that's when things got crazy.
The employee was not happy at all about this, and began cussing at the customer. The customer was in total shock, but thankfully already had the camera rolling.
“Baby, you’re about to get it,” the employee was heard saying. “Just wait. You’re gonna get your s**t.”
“You’re cursing,” the customer replied. “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
“You cannot treat people like this, this is your job,” the customer continued. “Are you for real?”
“No, I’m fake,” the employee responded.
The angry employee then came around the counter to confront the customer, when she noticed her phone was out and recording the entire thing. That's when things picked up even more.
“This place is getting shut down,” the customer said. “I’ll do whatever I can.”
The employee then, apparently, started getting physical.
“Get off of my foot,” the customer demanded. “This is assault. I’m calling the cops.”
“You wanna get slapped?” the employee replied. “You wanna get slapped?”
TheBlaze scored a statement from Burger King in regards to the incident;
"We are aware of the video posted on Facebook. Guest satisfaction and service are of the highest priority to everyone at BURGER KING(R) restaurants. The franchisee that owns and operates this restaurant has terminated the employee involved and has reached out to the guest directly."
Here's the profanity laced footage, in case you didn't scroll directly to it upon opening this page.
