A Burger King drive-thru worker lost her job earlier this month after a racist rant against two customers that was all caught on video.
Cellphone video taken from inside a car shows the female black staffer going off on two customers who are apparently asking for a refund over a hygiene issue stemming from an employee touching their food after she touched her cellphone.
The clip was posted last week on the Only in Dade Facebook page, but a Burger King spokeswoman told the Miami Herald Monday that the confrontation occurred Oct. 3 at the 163rd Street location in North Miami Beach.

The video starts out with the worker yelling, “Put it on Snapchat b---h! F--k you! You white piece of s--t!”
A man, the driver, answers, “We’re not even white, we’re Hispanic.”
The passenger, a woman who is the person filming, yells back, “Get it right!”
The drive-thru window then closes for a few seconds.
Then suddenly, it’s open again, and you hear the worker yelling mid-sentence about the “fat b--ch” getting her money back.
The passenger yells back: “I don’t care! You know what? At least I’m not working at Burger King.”
To that, the worker answers: “I have two parents. I go to school. This job, the money I make is to blow up, so it don’t matter!”
A baby cries in the background and the driver tries to mollify the escalating situation.
“We’re asking for a refund because your manager was touching her cellphone. It has nothing to do with you.”
A woman next to the worker is handling receipts and looks stressed. It is unclear if this is the manager.
“Are you threatening to kill me?” the passenger says.
“Did you hear me say that? Post it, you b---h,” replies the employee.
The video then mercifully ends.
“The actions of this team member do not reflect the values of the Burger King brand,” a spokeswoman for the fast food chain told the Miami Herald. “We have a zero tolerance policy for this type of behavior, and the individual is no longer with the company.”
This is just the latest in a string of racist rants caught on video.
In September, a Taco Bell drive thru worker in Hialeah was fired for refusing to speak English to a patron and the confrontation between her and the customer went viral.
