MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — One McDonald’s employee in Minnesota must have had an Unhappy Meal before work.
The 17-year-old’s explosive “McMeltdown” was caught on camera and now he and his boss no longer have jobs.
Brandon Robertson, the former manager, was with the fast-food chain for five years before he was fired Monday.
The teenage employee ripped through the kitchen breaking coffee pots and turning over sauces.
Robertson said he refrained from physically restraining the employee because he is under 18. Instead, he asked other employees to call 911.
Now he’s out of a job because management didn’t like the way he handled the incident.
The owner of the McDonald’s later released a written statement apologizing to customers who witnessed the explosive behavior.
“While it is inappropriate to publicly discuss personnel matters, rest assured that we took the appropriate action to address the entire matter and not just what was seen on video.”
Management is still unsure what set off the teen.
