Three workers in a McDonald’s restaurant in London were filmed brutally attacking a customer after he allegedly racially abused the workers by calling them "f****** P****." The middle aged customer was apparently drunk.
According to the person who filmed the video, who does not want to be named, workers including the manager first tried to calm the customer, but they got really irritated when he said, “Go back to your own country” and started thrashing the customer for his comments.
“I couldn't believe what I was seeing — especially when the manager started getting involved. It was shocking how they went at him,” he said.
The staff can be seen taking turns to punch and kick the man, who is shouting, “You wanna go down that road?” before a worker in white and tie, believed to be the manager, also joined the workers and threw a punch.
A McDonald's spokeswoman said, "All employees involved were called into the restaurant and disciplinary action will take place as a matter of urgency."
It is not for the first time that the staff from McDonald’s has caused trouble for the customers and the brand itself. Just recently, a McDonald's employee in Detroit was fired for throwing water on a homeless man.
