McDonald's in $1.5m lawsuit sparked by 'napkin dispute'
Customer reportedly said he was mistreated after he asked for more serviettes at the California outlet
A man is suing McDonald’s for $1.5m in a dispute allegedly sparked off by the fact that he was given only one napkin with his meal.
Webster Lucas claimed he is “unable to work” due to the “emotional distress” caused by the incident at the outlet in Pacoima, California, TMZ reported.
Lucas launched the lawsuit following the confrontation on 29 January.
He claimed he was given one serviette when he ordered a quarter pounder deluxe, but when he went to the counter to ask for more, the manager refused to give him any.
Lucas, who is African-American, alleged that the Mexican-American manager was racist towards him and mumbled something that sounded like “you people”.
He subsequently emailed the fast-food chain to complain, saying has had suffered “undue mental anguish” as a result of the incident.
According to TMZ, he was offered free burgers, but is now seeking $1.5m in compensation.
