A woman ordering from a McDonald’s drive-thru recorded her confrontation with an employee and the video has gone viral.
Wendy Rios was at the Charlotte, North Carolina, McDonald’s when an argument began between her and the female worker in the drive-thru window.
The worker is heard saying, ‘Can you say Donald Trump? Can you spell deportation?’
Rios, who is from Mexico and has a thick accent told WFAA that she felt aggravated and she’s heard saying ‘I have my papers’ in the video.

Rios began recording mid-confrontation as she was asking the worker for the last name of the manager. It appears the worker wrote the name ‘Kesha’ on a receipt without a last name.
The employee gives Rios the middle finger through the glass window.
The mom-of-four is heard telling the worker to ‘do it again’ repeatedly.
‘I kept saying, ”do it again, do it again,” because I wanted to have proof of what she did to me,’ Rios said.
It’s when Rios said, ‘can you do the same thing?’ that the unidentified employee responded with, ‘can you say Donald Trump?’ repeating his name and asked, ‘can you spell deportation?’
A manager later came out in an attempt to assuage the situation.
Wendy Rios posted the video to her Facebook with the caption in Spanish, it reads in English: ‘Hi everyone, look at what happened to me at the McDonald’s on Eastway and Central. I feel attacked and everything just happened because I asked if my order was complete? Don’t laugh at my English, when I’m mad I forget. Help me share this video so this racist lady sees the nasty things she said to me.’
McDonald’s owner and operator George Forrest heard about the incident and said the employee’s actions were inexcusable assuring that ‘this individual is no longer employed at my restaurant and we have expressed our sincerest apologies to the customer for this situation.’
Someone from that particular McDonald’s called Rios to apologize, which she says isn’t enough.
The mom-of-three said she was aggravated by the situation and was apologized to by McDonald’s over a phone call
The incident happened in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the employee has since been fired
