A man named Webster Lucas is so upset with McDonald's that he has decided to file a lawsuit against them for $1.5 million, but it's not for any reason you could possibly imagine. TMZ reported on Feb. 27, 2014, that the California man is suing McDonald's because they gave him only one napkin with the meal that he ordered and received.
Yes, it's the McDonald's napkin lawsuit.
A lawsuit that states Lucas is seeking $1.5 million from McDonald's.
Webster Lucas headed to a McDonald's in Pacoima, California, on jan. 29, 2014, and ordered a Quarter Pounder Deluxe. He had no problem with the food itself, but says that he got only one napkin in his bag.
Upon going to the counter to ask for more, Lucas claims the McDonald's manager would not give him any more napkins because he had already been given some.
Lucas, obviously enough, was unhappy and let it be known:
"I should have went to eat at the Jack-in-the-Box because I didn't come here to argue over napkins. I came here to eat."
At this point, Lucas was still unhappy and states that things took a racist turn. Lucas, who is black, claims that the manager, who is Mexican-American, mumbled something under his breath that actually sounded like "you people."
Lucas contacted the general manager via email and said that he was suffering from "undue mental anguish" and that stopped him from going to work. He also says that the general manager tried to make amends by offering him free food at McDonald's, but that wasn't enough.
With that, the McDonald's napkin lawsuit was born.
