Florida McDonald’s Employee Fired for Refusing to Serve Cops


A Florida McDonald’s employee was fired after refusing to serve to uniformed customers, a report says.

Quinn added that when his partner tried to order his meal, the employee said he wouldn’t serve “his kind.”

Quinn said he then told the employee he was a paramedic and not a police officer. But the employee said he wouldn’t serve “anyone with a badge.”

The restaurant issued a statement noting that the employee was fired.

“We are aware of the unfortunate incident that took place at one of our restaurants last night. We, like you, were upset and disappointed and took immediate action,” the company said.

“The employee has been terminated,” the restaurant added. “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.”

“We have reached out to offer our sincerest apology,” the restaurant concluded.
