McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski said the two employees who were shot at one of the fast-food chain’s locations in Oklahoma City are doing “OK” and will “have a full recovery.”
A customer allegedly opened fire on the McDonald’s workers on Wednesday night after police say she became angry when she was told the restaurant’s dining room was closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Obviously it’s a heinous crime, particularly because these two people were trying to really support public health,” Kempczinski told ABC News in an interview Thursday on “Good Morning America.”
“I think what you’re seeing in this situation is really what you’re seeing in a variety of situations across the country, which is this tension about (re)opening,” he added. “But there’s absolutely no excuse for violence, particularly gun violence. So I’m just happy our people are going to be okay.”
