Roommates, it looks y’all are getting super bold and companies like McDonald’s are not here for it!
According to FOX News, an Alabama McDonald’s employee was fired after allegedly “insulting” a police officer at the restaurant’s drive-thru window. As the officer pulled up to pay for his order, the employee noticed his uniform and said “I don’t like y’all”.
According to a Facebook post, the manager’s comments were taken as insulting and rude, and his since been fired from the restaurant.
The city of Andalusia posted about the incident on their Facebook page, insisting the employee was completely out of line. The post also says the chief of police met with the higher-ups at McDonald’s to discuss the incident.
“What occurred does not reflect the values of our brand, our franchise, or the love and admiration we have demonstrated consistently for our friends in law enforcement and first responders,” says McDonald’s spokesman Eddie Bird. “We express our sincerest apology.”
The Andalusia Police Department is reportedly not holding it to the fast food chain’ charge. Instead, they want for all employees to learn from the incident and “correct the problem”.
“As a department, we don’t hold McDonald’s responsible for one employee’s action,” Andalusia Police Chief Paul Hudson says. “We want all of those who were upset when they learned about the incident to know McDonald’s immediately took action to correct the problem.”
Apparently, the comment comes on the heels of another employee reaching out to the manager to get information about providing a discount for law enforcement officers.
In a Facebook post, the incident is described as follows:
“She walks off and returns with the manager and says ‘doesn’t Law Enforcement receive a discount?’. Her manager was a slender male don’t know his name and don’t care, stated ‘yea unfortunately we do’. This kind of caught me off guard but I waited while he punched in his code and when he finished he glanced at me and said ‘I don’t like y’all.” Needless to say I got my debit card and left and as of today I won’t eat at Andalusia McDonalds on or off duty.”
