McDonald’s Kicks Out Mentally Disabled Adults for ‘Conducting Business’

By

A Sacramento-area McDonald's has been accused of discriminating against developmentally disabled adults who came in for lunch as part of a supervised group. Constance Gastinell says she frequently brings the group to the fast-food restaurant, but was recently kicked out because management said she was "conducting business" on the premises. In a statement released to the news, however, franchise owners explain that a recent "food fight within their group, and disruption to our other guests" prompted the action. They added: "We have consistently attempted to work with these guests and accommodate their needs as best we can." Gastinell says her group became upset after the ouster.
