McDonald's employee fired for refusing to serve paramedics; thought they were cops


An employee at a Florida McDonald's was fired for refusing to serve two paramedics. The employee thought they were police officers and told them "we don't accept officers in here," based on a report by Yahoo News.

It was Anthony Quinn, a member of Sunstar Paramedics, who posted his story on Facebook. He states that he walked into the Madeira Beach McDonald's, on the way to the bathroom, and an employee confronted him.

"Quinn’s post read, “...An employee goes, ‘We don’t accept officers in here. I tell her I’m not an officer. She then says, ‘anyone with a badge,’ then says it to my partner as he walks in to order food, says, ‘We don’t serve your kind here.’ Just insane how people are."

Yahoo Lifestyle was able to get a response from Caspers Company, who owns the McDonald's in question.

The statement from Caspers was:

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 employee has been terminated. 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.

They also told the Yahoo contact that the store, in general, has respect for the law enforcement officers. Specifically, they said, “We love, admire, and support them in any way we can. We do our best to be there for them when they need us as they are always there for us...”

The employee who refused to serve paramedics was fired.
