Angry Customer Sues McDonald’s For Millions After Receiving One Napkin, Supersized Shame With Meal

Ahh, McDonald’s, the fast food that dreams and early onset diabetes diagnoses are made of.

Imagine heading to the local Mickey D’s to order your usual meal — a Deluxe Quarter Pounder — and looking down with dismay to find that you’ve only received one napkin. There’s simply no way you’ll be able to wipe the grease from a quarter pound of juicy beef from your face with only one napkin. You step up to the counter to ask for more, but you’re refused, and handed only a side of racism.

This is what one California man alleges in a $1.5 million lawsuit, and because being shamed by McDonald’s is a hefty burden to bear, he’s been unable to work ever since.

Ba-da-ba-ba-baaa, this guy was not lovin’ it — at all…

Per TMZ:

According to his lawsuit, [Webster] 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.

This case has definitely got some of that special sauce:
