Vernon Hackett, 22

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Vernon Hackett. McDonald’s franchise owner Mitchell McPherson gave Hackett the boot after viewing the same brutal footage that we all saw this weekend – the violent attack on 22-year-old Chrissy Lee Polis that left her in a seizure. Hackett, who is heard laughing in the video, filmed much of the attack rather than assist the victim.

When Polis begins seizing in the video, Hackett warns the 14 and 18-year-old girls who savagely beat her that they had better run before the police arrive.

Surely Hackett’s hateful Facebook posts about how Polis had it coming for being a man dressed as a woman had something to do with his dismissal as well.

Owner Mitchell McPherson gave the following statement denouncing the violence in his restaurant:

“I’m as shocked and disturbed by this assault as anyone would be. The behavior displayed in the video is unfathomable and reprehensible.”

Good riddance.
