An employee of Bucky's gas station in Naperville, Illinois was fired after a video displaying his racist behavior went viral.


The video was recorded by Carolina Buitron who was the victim of the employee's behavior, along with her family.

According to BuzzFeed News, Buitron and some of her family members visiting from Mexico stopped into the Naperville Bucky's for snacks.

Buitron and her family were conversing in Spanish when the employee told them to leave.

Buitron said:

"He started asking about my cousins, if they were illegal, family or friends, are they adopted."

On the video, the employee can be seen pointing at himself and proclaiming:

"I'm an American."

He proceeds to claim that their presence is illegal even when one of the women answers "yes" to whether or not she is a citizen.

He continues:

"Don't you know the rules? They need to go back to their country. It's illegal."

Just before the video ends, he says:

"You'll be sorry. ICE will come."

Bucky's has since posted an apology and shared that the man has since been fired.

The mayor of Naperville, Steve Chirico, has also chimed in to denounce the man's behavior.

People are disgusted by the racism displayed in the video.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
