A vape store clerk was fired Friday evening after he was video recorded having an unhinged meltdown screaming at a customer who was wearing a shirt that said “Trump” and a MAGA hat, refusing to sell him anything and demanding that he leave the store.
“LEAVE THE STORE! LEAVE THE STORE! LEAVE THE STORE! F-CK OFF! I DON’T GIVE A F-CK, GET OUT!” the employee screamed at the customer, Ian Furgeson, who posted the video on his Facebook page on Friday afternoon.
At one point the clerk was so enraged that he took a swing at Furgeson accusing him of being racist. The clerk makes a phone call, telling whoever he was speaking to that Furgeson was wearing “some Trump bullsh-t.”
“I’m not serving anyone that has to do with that f-cker,” he said, referring to President Trump. “He’s a treasonous a–hole.”
Furgeson told the clerk that he would not call the police or call the store’s headquarters to get him fired if he would sell him the vape juice that he came to buy for his wife. “What you did was assaulted me,” he told the clerk.
The clerk seemed to calm down at the prospect of Furgeson leaving the store and began ringing his purchase up. But after Furgeson said, “God bless America, capitalism wins again,” the clerk went ballistic launching into another profanity-laced tirade: “F-ck your capitalism, f-ck your f-cking president, he’s a racist stupid piece of sh-t.”
Caution, the clerk uses a lot of profanity.
The store, XHale City in Tucker, Georgia, posted on Facebook late Friday an announcement of the clerk’s firing:
To our friends and customers,

When we identified the employee at fault, we fired him immediately. We’ve also spoken to the customer and apologized.
