EUSTIS, FL -- Two Florida women have been warned not to come back to a Burger King in Eustis, near Orlando, after they complained about a manager speaking Spanish to an employee.
Viral video recorded by a customer and posted to Facebook July 6th shows the women telling a man "speak your Mexican at home" and "this is America. We should speak American English." They then tell him to "go back to your Mexican country, your Mexican state" if he wants to speak Spanish.
The manager, identified as Ricardo Castillo, told the women they were being "very prejudiced" "ignorant and disrespectful" and then told them they had to leave. Castillo told the women he was from Puerto Rico (a U.S. territory) and that the franchise owner was Mexican. He told them "don't come back" and threatened to call the police if they didn't leave.
Castillo told the Leesburg Daily Commercial he was doing paperwork when a new employee walked up and began speaking Spanish to him.
