He is said to have walked out and thrown the 14-inch pepperoni pizza, Blackened Chicken Caesar salad, Mozzarella Bread Stix, and more in the trash “ for fear of someone spitting in. ”
“Everyone is entitled to their feelings and political views, but certainly not when it comes to a professional environment,” the post continued. “Where have people been taught to disdain those who pay their bills?”
The widespread social media post attributed the incident to a ‘lack of management and professionalism’. The author called the behavior “unacceptable” and asked “how can anyone let this happen?”
The restaurant in Wrigleyville said it “ took immediate action to fire the employee ” after hearing about it Monday morning.
“Our company works incredibly hard to provide a positive and enjoyable experience for all customers,” read a Facebook post on Monday.
We offer our sincere and humble apologies – the act of either does not accurately reflect who we are as a company.

Happy Camper received more than 500 responses to its Facebook post with apologies.
The restaurant also said in a comment that it has contacted the police officer to apologize in person, offer a full refund, and provide a gift certificate to its restaurant of choice.
The officer’s name was kept confidential.
Many praised the location for firing the employee, but others suggested that it would have been a better idea to have Cassie C meet and apologize for the officer or provide adequate training.
Others said they hoped Happy Camper had done the proper investigation before firing the employee, noting that previous similar incidents turned out to be a hoax.
In one case last year, Oklahoma police falsely claimed that a Starbucks employee wrote “pig” on his coffee cups.
Two people were fired, including a manager who later announced that she was suing the company for wrongful termination.
