So it’s hard to believe that a mature, wealthy person working for a prestigious company would do such a heinous job.
Speaking of the video, identified man James Lannazzo made racist comments and tried to attack a girl by throwing a smoothie at her.
At first, in the video, James begins yelling at employees and asking them who made his smoothies. The girls replied politely: “We don’t know, sir.”
The man then became violent by racially and verbally attacking them. He called them immigrants, ignorant high school students, and so on.
But things took a turn for the worse when he threw a smoothie at an employee. The girls can be heard shouting: “Call the police!” as things got out of hand
The girls shared the clip on various social media platforms. It spread quickly. Many began mobilizing to support the girls and demand justice.
