There's no way that employee didn't speak English and that fact is proven when the woman filming asks her, "What's your name?" and she quickly responds, "Luisa".

Why did the person in the car keeping arguing to get food? I wouldn't want food from a drive-up window where I just argued with the clerk. Leo Getz is right.

If the employee was fired that was a good end result.

Florida actually DOES have English as its official language.




This attitude in the video is VERY pervasive in Miami-Dade county. Luckily it seems to be contained to just that county. Even just oen county north you don't tend to run into the Hispanic-supremacist attitude and Hispanic privilege.

The fact this happened in the US is beyond belief.

The employee was fired for her behaviour and there is nothing to suggest the customer was at fault.





As someone who travels quite a bit, I'm always astonished that I seem to find more English speakers in foreign countries than amongst the immigrants from those same countries that find their way to the US!

Thanks, Brave New World, for the newer clip. Not being able to speak English made zero sense.

I think anyone who went to the window and didn't help her should have been canned, as well.

That poster is a democrat.....they see racism 24/7 over anything. The word racism doesn’t even mean anything anymore and no one takes it seriously thanks to democrats abusing it and watering it down for years to stoke fear, anger, votes, and political advantage.

This is especially the case in tourist areas, indeed I could go in to a fast food chain in most Mediterranean areas and order in English and even if they don't understand fully most restaurants would just ask you to pint at thingsa on the menu befor serving you.

The employee in this case, was actually listening to the woman in English and then replying in Spanish, so perhaos she was just being awkward.

Furthermore how could she fill the job application in or pass a job interview or even get through staff training in Florida without speaking English.

English may be the official language of Florida, but does it apply to private businesses?

I can't imagine that the employees of a private business would be required to speak English. That sounds unconstitutional to me.
