Now, we have to state up front that we don’t know the full story of what happened before we saw this big white man reach across the counter and assault a small black female McDonald’s worker, but we do know we saw him strike her first.

The video post above shows a McDonald’s employee, Yasmine James,  in St. Petersburg, Florida being assaulted by a customer – Daniel Willis Taylor, 40, of Clearwater, Florida – over what appears to be an order that went left.

Check out the video above. You see Taylor reaching across the counter and grabbing James, who had taken his order. After he pulls her down on the counter, she fights back and attempts to break free from his grip.

“I am sick of seeing footage of men assault Women (often Black Women) and no one does anything about it. This conditioning contributes to the narrative that we are undeserving of protection and mark my words: it’s reaching a peak and turning into an invitation for our abuse,” reads one top Twitter response.

We’re not sure what the other (male) workers were thinking as they didn’t immediately come to the female worker’s aid. Finally, however, one of the males did step up to intervene and separate the two. However, it should be noted that Taylor was allowed to stay in the restaurant as if he did nothing. Meanwhile, James was sent home. and later fired.

What’s also noticeable is that someone who might be the manager proceeded to walk over to the customer to check his order to see what might have gone wrong. When the employee involved in the encounter walked back over in the direction of the counter, the customer points to her and tells the manager  “I want her ass fired, right now!”

“No, you’re going to jail!” the Black woman yells back.

“I was just asking you a f*cking question!” he replied.

Update:

According to Newsweek, the white customer, Daniel Willis Taylor, was charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple battery after assaulting a McDonald’s employee across the counter on New Year’s Eve.

McDonald’s has issued a statement as well:

“Our highest priority is always the safety and well-being of our employees and customers at our restaurants. We have been in contact with the police department and are fully cooperating with their investigation.”

    This site is using first reports. Perhaps the Tampa Bay Times initially got it wrong when thy quoted “James’s attorney, Michele Rayner-Goolsby, said in a news release, according to the Tampa Bay Times, “While (attacker Daniel) Taylor was arrested, the McDonald’s corporation has yet to release a statement about the incident and has placed Ms. James on leave.” She was placed on leave. That’s what TBT initially reported. This black site isn’t spreading anything. Hatred already exists, you weak fools. It ain’t going anywhere. That racist reached across the counter unprovoked and grabbed that girl. Her manager not only stood back, but also finished that racist’s order. Black people are now the perpetrators instead of the victims. Gotta love the spin. People make up garbage names and come on black news sites to chastise us to be more docile. Naw you coon, racist or bot. First reports are almost never correct. That’s why you have follow up after you receive more information. It’s called correction or updates. Get your coon having behind off this site and chase your orange racist fat daddy at 1600 Pennsylvania. Let me see your all you need is love cooning racist behind commenting on that turd’s lies. Don’t act like something is in your mouth or your hands are tied. Folks are straight garbage. If it’s a black person, they love kissing the colonizers arse. Since you love white massa so much, the WP made a mistake in their initial article and printed this retraction – “Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the incident and arrest took place on a Sunday. They occurred on Monday, Dec. 31, 2018. This post has been updated.” See feel better. Even your massa makes mistakes. Silly boot licker.

    She didnt get fired this is completely wrong all other news stations quote her saying she is fine and all employees have their jobs. He was arrested and also kicked another female in the stomach while trying to leave. He is a terrible person but this is inciting somthing with wrong information. I checked 20 different pages all have the correct story from the mouths of lawyers the persons involved the police and managers. I hope the man is treated unkindly in prison. But this page is spreading lies to increase hate when what we need is love. To love each other and ask for righteous outcomes of issues that are not fair. This was this woman has her job this terrible person is in jail. This distracts people from going after real unjust issues and stirs up hate for no reason. Shame on the author. Let’s not be separated and brought into a million directions by incorrect writing and find and demand fixing for real issues. This one was just this woman did the right thing and has her job and is treated fairly. The end.

      She deserved to be fired. Unfortunately now she she’ll go on the entitlement programs and we’ll have to pay for the hood rat

    • No, WAKE UP my Brothers and Sisters, get your license to carry. Their laws are not passed just for them. No dumb dumb Mac D, that so called hood rat is going to sue McDonalds, and will never have to worry about taking care of her children again. And that white trash she left a lot of her DNA on, will spend a lot of money to stay out of jail. Oh yeah, your white Christians and the KKK will pass the collection plate want they?

        @Sayitloud…..Mac Doo-Doo & Mrknownothingatall are psychos who crave Black people’s attention. This is how this or these “things” get their rocks off. Such a waste of anyone’s time.

    Here in Florida its the “stand your ground” law, she defended herself against that racist maggot. Why did McDonalds fire her, she needs a good lawyer.

  4. Do not eat that crap at mcdonalds. I will not eat there this year . The manager should have been fired for not protectjng his shift from a racist pig.

  5. I’d say she got the better of that punk ass bitch. I would have done the same thing if he put his hands on me. He was a pushy to the ump degree. These trumpeters have lost their damn minds.

  6. That RACIST TURD had no damn business assaulting the McDonald’s worker.

    What is even more disturbing is that NONE of this young woman’s co-workers or Mgr came to her defense or attempted to assist her during the assault.

    This entire incident was UGLY-then they added insult to injury by FIRING the Mickey D’s worker when she was the INNOCENT VICTIM.

    I DO NOT have a problem BOYCOTTING McDonald’s.
    WHEN YOU DON’T RESPECT US–YOU DO NOT DESERVE OUR FUCKING $$$$$.

    Yes! AND the NAACP, Rainbow Coalition…some entity needs to help this Young Woman seek & get justice! I AM SURE THEY WILL IN TIME…ALL IS NEEDED IS TIME & PRESSURE! ONCE enough people, the right people (i.e. The Rev. AL & Jesse, Colin, etc.)… MAN, it is at these times, that I surely wish I had studied law in college. I am truly horrified and deeply saddened to hear of what has happened to this young lady as a result of this incident, as well. Praise GOD someone was recording this horrific attack on this employee.

  8. CRYSTAL on said:

    I hate the WAY they kept tending to him like he was in the right. Propelling him to feel within his right to say: I want her fired!?????

  9. Press charges on the white man and SUE THE HELL OUT OF McDonald’s !!! I WILL NOT GO BACK TO McDonald’s until they rehired the young lady and publicly apologize to her !!! Proud of you young lady!!! ❤️👍🏾✊🏾

  10. So, asking us a question nowadays entitles you to grab us across the counter. Sister handled his ass perfectly. Went to jail and got his ass whipped. Now, she needs family to provide protection for awhile. Dude will likely seek revenge with the help of some of his hooded friends.

        You are either stupid or a coward, either way I would really like to have a meeting with you on a personal level

      • @Rob – you and your whole family are idiots! Your mother and father are sister and brother and your wife is your sister! So go screw yourselves into stupidom! You are just on this site because you didn’t know how to spell “kkk” to get on that site! Be gone imbecile!

      • Michael Middleton on said:

        @Rob…WHITE Donald Rump is the most stupid person on Earth and his followers are even worse. He’s an embarrassment to the whole wide World.

  11. Ted Gravely on said:

    I don’t care what happened – he had no business putting his racist hands on her. She should get an attorney and head straight to the so called police department and press charges. She had an inherent right to self defense. Brothers don’t hold back the sister that is defending herself – help her you idiot. The young lady “victim” should sue McDonald’s. She got assaulted on the job. WTF!!

  12. A Black Woman gets assaulted by a white customer at a McDonalds restaurant and She gets fired!?? Fb family, it’s time we boycott all McDonalds until this injustice is rectified!!! Starting NOW!!!

    • Deidra on said:

      I can’t believe they fired her! They fired the victim of an assault. People in that area need to put the word out right now, to boycott that McDonald’s. Ms. James needs to get a lawyer; don’t take this without a fight.
