Vernon Hackett, the 22 year old McDonald’s employee responsible for filming and posting online the video of the brutal attack of a trans woman on Monday, was fired for his actions according to a statement released by the franchise owner. In addition to posting the video online, Hackett has also defended the attack and video on Twitter and Facebook by calling the trans woman a man.
Mitchell McPherson, owner of the location, has also stated that action will be taken towards the other employees as warranted but there is no word as to what that may entail.
