Vans Shoe Store Fires Employee After Reportedly Telling a Teen in MAGA Hat ‘F**k You’

A Vans employee was fired after he reportedly told a teenager in a Make America Great Again hat, “fuck you.”

A video of the exchange, which did not record the explicit comment, did record the conversation that took place afterward. The boy’s mother was upset and the employee did not deny using the vulgar language.

“He did nothing to you,” the mom said. “What did you say to my son, to my 14-year-old?”

“I’m sure he’s heard it before,” he replied.

The mom then talked to the manager about the incident.

First reported by The Daily Caller and then confirmed by Mediaite, Vans has since fired the employee.

“He is no longer with the company,” Vans said.

“Our focus is to provide the best customer service experience,” a Vans Corporate employee told the Caller. “We did let this employee go. He is no longer with our company. The actions and comments from this employee at the Oak Park location is in contrast with our values and beliefs.”
