A Charlotte, North Carolina McDonald's employee has been fired after video of her verbal attack on a customer went viral. Wendy Rios recorded the altercation and posted the video to Facebook on September 9.

Rios began recording as she sat outside the drive-thru window. The video shows the McDonald's employee shutting the window in Rios' face and giving a rude hand gesture. Rios sits outside the window, trying to get the employee's attention. When the employee returns, she opens the window and begins her tirade. The employee says "Donald Trump" repeatedly to Rios before asking, "Can you spell deportation?"

Rios said in her Facebook post that the argument began after she asked if her order was complete.

Hola a todos, miren lo que me pasó en el McDonald's de Eastwey y Central, me siento agredida y todo pasó, nada más por qué le pregunté si mi orden estaba completa?..... no se rían de mí inglés, es que cuando me enojo se me olvida. 🤣. Ayuden a compartirlo para que esta señora resista mire lo malo que dijo.
