Vape Store worker refuses to serve Trump supporter before liberal rant
A vape shop worker who launched into an ‘anti-Trump’ rant before refusing to serve a customer who was wearing a MAGA has been fired after the video went viral on social media.
Ian Furgeson entered thee Xhale City store in Tucker on Friday to purchase some items when he was faced with a barrage of abuse from the retail employee who demanded he leaves because of his MAGA hat.
As the liberal rant took more momentum, Furgeson took out his phone to capture the bizarre incident.
“I have just been asked to leave the store. He greeted me, that was nice. I did find the item that I wanted, and the next thing he said was he’d like me to leave,” Furgeson explained.
The shop employee then demands Furgeson stop filming and threatens to call the police.
Furgeson then tells the employee how he is looking forward to releasing the video.
The employee then completely loses before trying to Furgeson’s phone out of his hand saying: “F*** off, f*** off dude. Get the f*** out of here. I f***ing can’t stand y’all racist mother f***ers.”
The liberal store cashier then attempts to call someone to complain:
“He’s wearing some Trump bullsh*t…I’m not serving anyone that has to do with that f***er. I’m going to call the cops and have him leave.”
Furguson then respectfully asks the man to purchase a vape juice for his wife as he explains that he is not racist.
The employee then reaches a boiling point and begins uncontrollably yelling: “Leave the store! Leave the store! I don’t give a f***! Get out! No!!! Get the f*** out!!!”
Furguson responds “Just sell me the f***ing product so I can leave.”
When Furgeson then ends by saying ‘God bless America. Capitalism wins again’, the employee blasts “F*** your capitalism. F*** your f***ing president. He’s a stupid, racist piece of sh*t.”
After Furguson get the clerk to agree to the purchase, he adds: ‘Ring it up. Do my bidding. Sell it to me, punk’, leading the employee to yell ‘Get the f*** out!’
Furgeson says ‘Ring it up. Do my bidding. Sell it to me, punk’.
‘Get out! F*** off! F***!,’ roars the employee.
Furgeson posted the video to Facebook which has since racked up over 200,000 shares and 7.5million views.
One Facebook user wrote: ‘This place will lose a lot of business now that this is the video is viral, and I hope he gets fired!’ one Facebook user wrote.
‘This is the society we live in. “I don’t like what your shirt says so I’m going to throw a temper tantrum!” Surprised he didn’t fall on the floor kicking and screaming like a child!’ another added.
‘That store employee should be fired! His personal opinion does not give him the right to act this way to a customer,’ another added.
‘Why was he calling you racists? What started this because that man seemed not to like you as well? Hm….??? This dude flipped a lid, but u kept talking down on him so… Y’all both were wrong here,’ one Facebook commenter said.
‘Service Refusal is a right retained by businesses to be used at their discretion. They are not allowed to discriminate based on the protected classes, but political alignment is not among those aforementioned classes. Therefore, as per law, the cashier has the authority to ask the patron to leave,’ one Facebook user wrote.
Furgeson confirmed Xhale City’s corporate office told him the employee has now been fired.
Xhale City Facebook page appeared to confirm before the page was deleted, according to Newsflare.
‘To our friends and customers, tonight we had an employee act improperly toward a customer. Xhale City does not tolerate this kind of behavior from its employees. When we identified the employee at fault, we fired him immediately,’ the deleted post said.
‘We’ve also spoken to the customer and apologized. We value our clients and treat them with respect and dignity, regardless of their political views,’ the company added.
