A Taco Bell employee in Hialeah, Florida is without a job after viral video shows her refusing customer’s order.
On Wednesday night, Alexandria Montgomery was only trying to place her order at a Taco Bell drive-thru in English. The employee at the window chose not to take her order because she the customer wasn’t speaking Spanish.
The footage, which was posted Thursday night on the woman’s Facebook page, shows Montgomery asking the employee for the manager.
The employee answers in Spanish that the manager is at home asleep. When she does, it’s very dismissively. She goes on to say in Spanish, that there is no one else available to take her order and asks her to leave before she calls the cops.
She then tells Montgomery that she has a car behind her, and closes the window in her face. The employee then asks for Montgomery to move and that there is no one there who speaks English.
