In the video, two older women are heard for the first time arguing with General Manager Ricardo Castillo, after reporting to him to complain about how he spoke Spanish to another employee.

"Guess what, ma'am? I'm not Mexican, "says Castillo. "I'm not Mexican, but you have a lot of prejudices and I want you to leave my restaurant now."
"I'm going to finish my meal and then I'll go," she says.
"You know what, I'll do it for you, ma'am, I'll call the cops," says Castillo, calling them "ignorant" and "disrespectful."
Castillo then reveals that the owner of this Burger King is actually a Mexican-American man and is waiting for the women to get up and leave.
We then hear Nicole apologize to Castillo for having endured the incident and offers to send him the images she just filmed.

"He's done well and is very professional, which I applaud a lot for," said Oni Martinez, another restaurant guest, at Fox 35.
The Burger King offices also read the video and issued a statement condemning the discrimination discussed in the video.
"There is no room for discrimination in our restaurants," said Burger King in a statement obtained by Fox News. "We expect employees and guests to treat each other with respect. This incident took place in a franchise restaurant and the owner is looking into the matter. "

"My client is very disappointed that customers are making racist and insensitive attacks on the people who work there and who have been trained to serve customers," Zarco said.
