This was really hard to watch not going to lie. So here's what happened. A Merrill Lynch financial adviser from Connecticut ordered a smoothie without peanuts from "Robeks" for his son, who has a peanut allergy. He asked for the drink to not contain peanut butter, but he did not mention the allergy, the Fairfield Police Department wrote in a statement.
The video shows him demanding three employees tell him who made the drink, but they say they are not sure and that he should call the franchise's corporate office with the complaint. The confrontation quickly escalates, with Lannazzo calling them "f****** stupid, f****** ignorant high school kids."
Well now he has been fired after footage of his racist rant went viral.
James Iannazzo, 48, was arrested and charged with a hate crime following the chaotic scene at Robeks in Fairfield just before 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, the Fairfield Police Department said.
