Webster Lucas is suing the restaurant for $1.5 million (€1.09 million)
A California man decided to sue McDonald’s for no less than $1.5 million (€1.09 million) because he received only one napkin with his meal.On January 29, 2014, Webster Lucas went to a McDonald's location in Pacoima, California, and ordered a Quarter Pounder Deluxe. When he received the requested product, he had no problems with the food itself, but was very upset because the restaurant's employee had put just one napkin in his bag.
He then returned to the counter to ask for more, but the staff refused to give him any more napkins. The man, who is black, says the manager rudely refused his request and mumbled something racist under his breath.
"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," said the unsatisfied customer, according to TMZ.
Lucas further emailed the general manager of the restaurant to complain, who reportedly offered free burgers in return. However, the gesture did not satisfy him, as Lucas felt insulted by the offer and decided to file a lawsuit against McDonald's asking $1.5 million (€1.09 million) for his hard time.
The man claims he is now unable to work because of the "Undue mental anguish" he suffered after the incident.
