Charlotte McDonald’s Employee Fired Over Viral Video Asking Customer to Spell ‘Deportation’


A video taken at a Charlotte McDonald’s drive-through is now going viral after an employee told a customer to “say Donald Trump” and “Can you spell deportation?”.

The video was first uploaded to Facebook by Wendy Rios on September 9th and was quickly picked up by Fox News.

Wendy commented under her video, “Hello everyone, look what happened to me at the Mcdonald’s of eastwey and central, I feel assaulted and everything happened, nothing more why I asked if my order was complete?….don’t laugh at me English, is that when I’m pissed off. 🤣. Help to share it so this lady can resist. Look at how bad she said.”

Her video has already been shared over 5,000 times and viewed over 475,000 times:

Wendy said that she was asking for some ketchup, after which the employee put up her middle finger to Wendy through the closed window – the rest of the argument can be seen in the above video.

As soon as McDonald’s caught wind of what the employees did and said to Wendy, they fired the employee, saying that her actions inexcusable.

McDonald’s Owner/Operator George Forrest also released the following statement:

“The actions of this employee are inexcusable and in no way reflect the strong values McDonald’s and my organization place on diversity, inclusion and providing a welcoming experience for our customers. This individual is no longer employed at my restaurant and we have expressed our sincerest apologies to the customer for this situation.”
