KoreAm: Things get physical as tensions erupt at Queens McDonald’s

posted by Randall

McDonaldsTensions between elderly Korean Americans and a McDonald’s in Queen’s erupted into a physical altercation, according to a multi-million dollar lawsuit filed in New York.

KoreAm reports the lawsuit alleges a manager identified as only Lucy hit a Korean American man with a broom after he complained about the service.

The customer who is only identified by the last name Kim in the suit alleges Lucy yelled at him to leave the restaurant and told him coffee is not available “to people like you.”

Kim says he was hit with the broom after trying to videotape the incident with his cell phone.

Earlier this year, police had to be called in when the Queens McDonald asked a group of elderly Korean Americans to leave after complaining they were staying too long and occupying seats.

A compromise was reached, but apparently some lingering resentment remains.
