A video of two elderly female customers telling a manager at a Florida Burger King to go back to Mexico for speaking Spanish has gone viral.
The women are seen telling the manager to go back to Mexico after he spoke Spanish to two employees.
He replies, “I’m Puerto Rican,” and after a heated discussion, he asks them to leave.
“Guess what, ma’am? I’m not Mexican,” Ricardo Castillo, who is of Puerto Rican descent, said. “You’re being prejudiced and I want you out of my restaurant right now.”
Castillo is seen arguing with the women and defending his right to speak Spanish as a Puerto Rican American in the Eustis restaurant about 40 miles north of Orlando.
Burger King said the owner of the Eustis restaurant is “looking into the matter.”
