VIDEO: McDonald's employee fired after racist rant

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WPVI) -- A manager at a Charlotte, North Carolina McDonald's has been fired after a simple question from a customer led to a tirade tinged with racism.

Wendy Rios asked a worker at the drive-thru to make sure her order was correct, and then she asked for extra ketchup.

Rios started recording the altercation when the worker gave her a rude gesture.

The worker also asked, "Can you say deportation?"

The worker kept repeating President Trump's name until she ended the conversation.

Rios says she wanted to prove how offensive the worker was.

The owner of the McDonalds has called Rios, to talk about the incident in person.
