MADEIRA BEACH, F.L. — A McDonald’s employee was fired after turning away paramedics in Florida.

Anthony Quinn, a paramedic with Sun Star Inc., claimed in a Facebook review of the Madeira Beach McDonald’s that he and his partner were denied service at the restaurant.

In his review, Quinn said that he went in to use the bathroom when the employee told him that the restaurant “doesn’t accept officers in here.” When Quinn told the employee he wasn’t an officer, the employee said he wouldn’t serve “anyone with a badge.”

Later, Quinn says his partner went to order and the employee said he wouldn’t serve “his kind.”

Casper’s the company that runs the McDonald’s location, released the following statement.

“We are aware of the unfortunate incident that took place at one of our restaurants last night. We, like you, were upset and disappointed and took immediate action. The employee has been terminated. What occurred does not reflect the values of our brand, our franchise, or the love and admiration we have demonstrated consistently for our friends in law enforcement and first responders. We have reached out to offer our sincerest apology.”

    This has got to stop – anti-cop, anti-white, anti-immigrant, anti-people of color, anti-everything rhetoric that is coming out of the mouths of all people in public office and the media. STOP!!! All you are accomplishing is more hate, more divisiveness, more shootings etc. This is coming from both sides and the middle.

      Sassygirl58, this anti-everything rhetoric began about 12 years ago – before that, really, but it took off during a certain presidential administration. It was encouraged. It was nurtured, and it has blown out of control where college/university campuses are teaching (quite actually, TEACHING) people to be combative, regardless of facts, truth, or integrity. Bike Lock Man. Anti.FA. B.l.M. All of the self-aggrandizing labels and special-ness of trans-b.s. nonsense. Parents administering hormone blockers to 3 year old children that “think” they’re another gender. 86 “gender” identifications. The world has gone upside down, and it DOES have to stop.

    Apparently the nitwit couldn’t even handle the “power ‘ of being a McDonald’s employee let alone conceive what educated people EMT’s and most police officers are or the picture of a world where drugs , prostitution and moron thugs carrying guns is like ( Mexico) .
