McDonalds has made a new golden arch enemy — a California man is suing the company for $1.5 MILLION … because he says he only got ONE NAPKIN with his meal.
Webster Lucas claims he was stiffed on napkins at the Mickey D’s in Pacoima, CA on January 29th — after ordering a Quarter Pounder Deluxe — and when he went up to the counter to ask for more, he was rudely rebuffed by the manager … who insisted he already got some.
According to his lawsuit, Lucas — who is black — then retorted, “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.”
That’s when Lucas says things got racist — claiming the manager (a Mexican-American) mumbled something about “you people.”
Lucas subsequently emailed the general manager to complain — insisting he couldn’t work because of the “undue mental anguish” he was suffering as a result of the napkin debacle — and says he was insultingly offered free burgers in return.
Lucas wants to super size instead — $1.5 million.
