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.
