mcdonald's napkin lawsuit

Webster Lucas was given only one napkin when he purchased a meal at a Pacoima, Calif., McDonald’s restaurant. When he went back to the counter asking for more, his request reportedly resulted in not only a napkin refusal by the eatery’s manager but a racist retort as well. Now the man is suing the franchise for emotional distress and asking for $1.5 million, according to TMZ.

The napkin debacle took place Jan. 29. Lucas ordered a Quarter Pounder meal and was given just one napkin. The restaurant’s manager, Angel, reportedly a Mexican-American, allegedly told Lucas that he had already given him a napkin and refused to dole out any more. Upon hearing that he could not receive additional napkins, Lucas mentioned that he should have taken his business elsewhere, stating, “I should have went to eat at the Jack-in-the-Box because I didn’t come here to argue over napkins. I came here to eat.”

Lucas, who is African-American, alleges that after he made his displeasure known, the napkin feud took an ugly turn; he claims to have heard the manager make a racist comment, stating something to the effect of “you people.”

The lawsuit filing states that Lucas decided to escalate his complaint about the service he received at the McDonald’s in question to the establishment’s general manager, Leticia Barrera. The man sent the higher-up an email in which he reportedly detailed how he had to put up with Angel’s unprofessional and “hostile” attitude. Lucas also went on to tell the general manager how Angel demonstrated a “deep-seated attitude towards customers.”

Lucas also claimed in the email to Barrera that he has suffered “undue mental anguish and the intentional infliction of emotional distress,” reportedly all brought about by Angel’s treatment of him.

In return for the distress Lucas suffered at the hands of Angel, the mega food corporation allegedly offered him free burgers, which he has flatly turned down. Instead, Lucas now has a super-sized hunger that apparently only $1.5 million can satisfy, which is more than enough to keep him in burgers for the rest of his life!
