Webster Lucas, from California is suing McDonald’s for $1.5 MILLION … because he says he only got ONE NAPKIN with his meal.
Webster Lucas claims he was stiffed on napkins at a McDonald’s in Pacoima, CA on January 29th, after ordering a Quarter Pounder Deluxe. He said when he went up to the counter to ask for more napkins, the manager, named Angel, refused to give him any more napkins. In his lawsuit, Lucas claimed he is “unable to work” due to the “emotional distress” caused by the incident at the outlet in Pacoima, California, TMZ reported.
Also in the lawsuit, Lucas, who is African-American, alleged that the Mexican-American manager was racist towards him and mumbled something that sounded like “you people”.
Lucas subsequently emailed the general manager to complain — insisting he couldn’t work because of the “undue mental anguish” he was suffering as a result of the napkin refusal and says he was insultingly offered free burgers in return.
Back in 1992, a woman in New Mexico, won a hot coffee lawsuit against McDonald’s. She was awarded $2.1 Million for her pain and suffering. The company is also facing harsh criticism from Government legislators who are battling back against American obesity, claiming that the fast food giant is one of the leading causes of obesity.
Please do share your thoughts on this lawsuit and the other criticisms being aimed at McDonald’s.
