A McDonald's employee in Madeira Beach, Florida was let go from their position after refusing to serve local paramedics, stating that they "would not serve anyone with a badge." The McDonald's franchise, after initially hearing about the incident through social media, took immediate action a let go their reluctant employee. But why did a simple transaction end up like this?

The incident occurred last Wednesday, and went viral after one of the paramedics who was refused service posted about the ordeal on Facebook. In the now-deleted post, the before mentioned paramedic cited how the McDonald's employee had explicitly told him and his partner who were at the time ordering that they "don't serve your kind here" and will not serve food to "officers" or anyone with a badge. Both paramedics tried to order, but were immediately denied.

The paramedic, Anthony Quinn, had expressed over social media that he was regretful for sharing the ordeal over Facebook, but was happy as to how the McDonald's franchise handled the situation and thanked them for their swift action.

Do you think the McDonald's location acted appropriately, or was the decision to fire their employee too swift? Let us know below!
