McDonald's employee hurls abuse at drive-thru customer

A McDonald’s employee has been caught on camera hurling abuse at a customer in New Zealand over the weekend.

Hamilton resident Teuteu Eukaliti was attempting to order food from a 24-hour McDonald’s restaurant drive-thru service on Peachgrove Road in Hamilton when he was told the restaurant was temporarily closed.

When Mr Eukaliti questioned why he wasn’t able to be served, the female employee began to swear at the man before threatening to “come outside”.

In footage posted to Facebook by Mr Eukaliti, the employee can be heard shouting: “The f*** you want bitch? Want me to come out there?”

“I am telling you how it is but you’re just being a little bitch because you can’t get food,” the employee said.

Mr Eukaliti accuses the restaurant of false advertising before the employee tells him to complain to their head office.

Speaking to Newshub, a McDonald’s spokesperson said that the way the staff member handled the situation was “unacceptable”.

“The restaurant manager spoke with the customer on Sunday and apologised, and an investigation into what happened is taking place,” the spokesperson said.
