BRIDGETON, Mo. – An employee of Taco Bell lost her job after her tirade against a client went viral.
The incident occurred at the restaurant along St. Charles Rock Road in Bridgeton, Missouri.
Tarek Hamdan went to the Taco Bell car to get a meal just before his Ramadan fast. When Hamdan approached the window, he encountered an employee who spoke anti-Muslim language and blasphemy, and hinted that all Muslims were terrorists.
Hamdan patiently tried to tell the employee that he also hated the terrorists, but to no avail.
Hamdan recorded the meeting and published it online.
Taco Bell Corp. issued the following statement in response to the video:
"We welcome everyone in our restaurants and we do not tolerate this type of behavior. This is a franchise location and the member of the team involved no longer works for this franchise. The franchisee has approached the client to apologize. "
KTVI tried to contact Hamdan to talk about his experience. He said he would talk about the test in time.
