You should never be rude to anyone, but there’s a reason people say you especially shouldn’t mess with anyone who handles your food.
One TikToker received 62.7 million views and more than 7 million likes after he posted a video of himself apparently pouring sweet and sour sauce - instead of caramel sauce - into a customer’s frappé, while working at McDonald’s.
McDonald’s are said to have investigated the incident once they were made aware of the TikTok video.
The viral video allegedly led to the employee losing his job at the fast-food chain.
In the clip, the worker is seen squirting cream on the drink, before opening a pot of sweet and sour sauce and pouring it on top. The on-screen text reads: “When the customer has an attitude but you remember I only make 8.50 an hour” as a snippet of Lana Del Ray’s “Jealous Girl” plays.
The top comment with 830,000 likes reads: “Friendly reminder that fast food workers have feelings too.”
Not all of the comments were supportive, however, with one user saying: “8.50 is better than 0 if you get fired, grow up because you are gonna learn that you will have to deal with these people and now you are no better.”
Others highlighted that the customer could have had an allergic reaction to the unexpected garnish.
Two weeks later, the TikTok user uploaded another video where he can be seen standing outside McDonald’s.
The on-screen text reads “Ladies and gentlemen, you did it. You got me fired… bye McB*tches.” He then turns around and zooms into a neighbouring Dunkin’ Donuts and wrote “what’s next?” along with a smiling devil face.
