A Chipotle boss was fired this week after a video published on Twitter showed that employees refused to serve five black men and asked them to prove they had the money to pay for their meals before ordering their orders.
The films, which have been retweeted more than 52,000 times, showed that Chipotle employees continued to serve a white woman without asking her to show “proof of income”. When the camera zoomed in to her, an employee said the food would be on the house.
“This is not how we treat our customers. We are committed to treating everyone equally and respectfully,” said Chipotle in a statement. “The boss has finished and we retrain everyone at the restaurant to make sure that something is not happens again.
According to the company, the manager considered that the men were the same customers as previously ordered and could not pay for their meals.
“It’s no matter how we treat our customers,” said Chipotle.
The video was taken by 21-year-old Masud Ali, who went to eat a “long training session.”
“So Chipotle will sit here and tell me I can not eat because they think I look like someone stole from them before ?? Masud was posted on Twitter.
