In a contentious video that has rocketed to virality on TikTok, a dispute unfolds between a fast food worker and a customer over a case of potential misgendering. Was this a genuine misunderstanding, or does it underline a broader issue of discrimination? The internet is embroiled in a fierce debate. Here’s a look at the unfolding drama and its wide range of reactions.
Was the Customer’s Complaint Valid?
When the gender on a credit card didn’t match up with who was presented in front of this worker, it caused controversy.
Fierce TikTok Debate
The incident has sparked a fierce debate on TikTok, with users divided over whether the customer’s complaint was valid or if it was blown out of proportion.
Mistake or Intentional Misgendering?
In the video, the fast food worker can be seen calmly explaining to the customer that the misgendering might have been a mistake based on the name displayed on their credit card.
The Worker Insists Nothing Was Meant
The worker argues that there was no intentional discrimination involved.
Customer Cries Discrimination
But, the customer remains adamant that they were discriminated against and demands that trans individuals will be treated respectfully in the future.
Identity Doesn’t Match Name
The worker continues to emphasize that the name on the credit card does not indicate a feminine identity, which the customer agrees with.
It Wasn’t About Gender or Sexuality
The worker maintains that they do not discriminate based on gender or sexuality.
Assumed Gender from Name
They saw a typically male name on the card and used it accordingly.
The customer stands firm in their belief that they were a victim of discrimination.
At one point, the customer flips the camera to show their own face, which has sparked mixed reactions among viewers.
Some viewers feel that this action did not support the customer’s case, “Dude turning the camera did not help your case.”
Impressed With His Patience
While others praised the worker for remaining patient throughout the interaction, “He is a lot better man than me tbh I’m not as nice as the manager dude I mean for me it’s a respect thing u show me respect I’ll show it back.”
Pick Your Battles
Some viewers even suggested that the customer may have been intentionally prolonging the conversation to create a problem, “People just want a reason to argue… pick your battles…”
