McDonald’s Customer Claims Civil Rights Violated


A disabled woman that visited McDonald’s, the fast food giant, as a customer has claimed that her civil rights were violated by rude staff members. The mother of four claims that staff refused to serve her because of the way that she wanted to collect her food as a result of her disability.

The woman, Dawn Larson, suffers from a disability known as Holt-Oran Syndrome, and this is where the hands and arms are not properly developed. As a result of the under-development of the hands and arms Dawn stated that she has had to learn to pick up things and carry out many day to day duties using her feet instead of her hands.

According to her report, the problem at McDonald’s stemmed from her wishing to place an order, which she was then intending to collect from the drive thru windows using her foot. The two McDonalds restaurants in question are both in Rockford, and Larson claims that staff at both branches refused to serve her.

A manager for the two branches of the fast food chain has confirmed that the allegations are being treated seriously, and that the matter is going to be thoroughly investigated.
