dont care for the fact that her lawyer is so..public.
I think I have finally realized that no one has our back. We Black Women are really alone in this world. Some of the comments I read on IG were truly appalling.
I am willing to back this young lady 100%
*Not responsible for the profanity.
I’m mad at every male in that video, including the ones who just sat by watching.
If one of those guys was my son I’d crawl into a hole from embarrassment
This is awful I hope she’s okay
I feel so bad for people that have to deal with irate/dangerous customers and all this for minimum wage :Nono:
When I worked at a theme park this white guy came over a counter for a Eastern European girl and my bro stepped in. People are quick to dehumanize service workers and I know that goes doubly for black people
Makes sense. She was an immigrant which is next in line to stir the ire of some racist/hating wp right after minorities. I think these people want to look down on others and anything that divides us from them: color, an accent, etc can stir their rage.
Glad your bro helped.
A man grabs me across the counter in a chokehold, I will defend myself... she fought him OFF...
That said, she likely got fired for not following procedure involving irate customers. I don't know what McDonald's policies are, but in a customer service environment, it is safer to take action to de-escalate a situation than contribute to it. I never agree with arguing with a customer. But that manager should've done more to protect the employees by telling that thug to leave and refuse to serve him
Thanks for the phone number
Yes fight him off be the point is to not be arguing and going back and forth
with a crazy man close enough to grab you. Talk your from a safe distance
The manager was a dang fool he proceeded to process the refund
I mean once a fool grab you you need to try and take his head off
Interview with Yasmine James
I hope Macdonald’s releases the surveillance tapes.
What about the lady that got kicked in the stomach? Is she ok?
She seems so cute and sweet. I like that she’s appropriately assigning blame to McDonald’s, too. She’s demonstrating that there are broader labor issues that are systemic in nature.
God bless this young lady. I am still upset that she experienced such reprehensible treatment from that goon and is still having to fend for herself.
I'm sure she was coached by her lawyer , and yes GOOD. She needs to assign blame to McDonalds.
With that said, I do wish she did not just let the manager off the hook and say he wasn't trained to deal with this. Trained or not, he let dude go and proceeded to still serve dude after he grabbed her instead of calling the cops to contain the situation. This is a common sense issue. This not only shows a lack of judgment but dare I say an air of prejudice. He did not view her as human enough to be protected. He just let the situation continue to escalate until he had no choice but to call someone when he hit another woman. It's almost like it had to be a pattern, or else he was going to be the whole, "Are you sure" person when something racially motivated happens to a black person. But then it becomes so obvious through escalation that he finally decides to act . And for that, his actions were unacceptable. You should believe people the first time and not try to justify or understand mistreatment and violence of black women. I think that's why dude was allowed to get his "change" and still be served because the manager was trying to go on with business as usual and "ignore" the incident. But you can't ignore assault and I darn sure bet he wouldn't ignore assault to a ww in the same way (making change, etc). No cops would be on the scene immediately.
So yes. I assign blame to him and to mcdonalds.
@luckiestdestiny, her claim against McD will probably be based upon failure to properly train the manager, and not so much letting him off the hook.
Thanks for this. That makes sense.
Um, I would have put the blame on Mcd too. Manager probably doesn't have any money. Assuming she wants to collect on damages, Mcdonalds is the only party in this who could probably make it worth her while.
Love this idea...
He only got 60 days.
Judge: Jail time for man who attacked McDonald's worker over straw
Updated Mar 10 2019 04:46PM EDT
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man who grabbed a McDonald's worker by the collar because he couldn't find a straw was sentenced to 60 days in jail.
A Pinellas County judge also ordered 40-year-old Daniel Willis Taylor to stay away from the restaurant and the workers he attacked in an incident caught on video. Taylor was credited with the 58 days in jail he already served. He also must pay a $1,000 fine.
Authorities say Taylor became irate when he couldn't find a straw on New Years' Eve. The video shows him standing at the counter, screaming at 20-year-old Yasmine James before grabbing and holding onto her shirt collar. She responded by hitting him several times.
The clerk was not hurt, but the arrest affidavit said Taylor injured a second clerk by kicking her in the stomach as he was being escorted out.
So, he assaults two women and only gets 60 days and a 1K fine? Yeah, white privilege doesn't exist I bet he'll get out right away for "over crowding" or some other
They credited him with time served so he only had to serve two additional days at most.
Yeah, I noticed that he served 58 days on second look *sigh* It just adds insult to injury.
