“I f****** was nice to you”, the customer shouts, “you were a f****** bitch”.

“Yeah because it’s three o’ clock in the f****** morning and I want to go home”, the infuriated member of staff responds.

The video went viral after it was shared thousands of times on Facebook, forcing the fast-food chain to publicly apologise.

ShaeLynn MadPlume, who shared the original video, said: “Just a few customers trying to give them business!!! PITA PIT (downtown Missoula doesn’t close until 3am)…we come in at approximately 2:00am trying to order food and this racist woman spit in our food because apparently “she was having a bad day and didn’t wanna be at work!”…….mind you, she argues with us a few seconds before we were actually able to capture this on video!!”.

“I don’t know what happened before or after this video was taken but please don’t listen to those who speculate.

“I can see what happened during the video and there is no excuse whatsoever for the type of behavior shown by an employee that I can assure you is no longer working for us.

“If my husband and I could take back what happened, we would. That is not possible. In this moment of shock and heaviness, we want to offer you, your friends, and the Missoula community our sincerest apology.”
