Screen shot 2011-04-23 at 10.52.09 AM

What Is Going On?

A video of a vicious beating at a Baltimore County McDonald’s restaurant went viral Friday, garnering hundreds of thousands of views on websites and prompting the fast-food giant to issue a statement condemning the incident.


In defence of McDonald’s please know the brand who always looks out for the community had nothing to do with this, I can not say that for the store however.  The video shows two women — one of them a 14-year-old girl — repeatedly kicking and punching the 22-year-old victim in the head, as an employee of the Rosedale restaurant and a patron try to intervene. Others can be heard laughing, and men are seen standing idly by.


This is Vernon Hackett, 22, the McDonalds employee who filmed the assault with his cell phone at the McDonalds restaurant at 6315 Kenwood Avenue, in Rosedale, MD.Another blogger called the store and spoke to a nice young lady who said this staffer’s employment status is “under review.” I assume that means he’s suspended or fired.
