A South Dakota teen said his manager forced him to wear a demeaning nametag while working at his fast food job.
Tyler Brandt said his boss had been verbally abusive to him since the 16-year-old began working at a Mexican restaurant in Yankton, reported KELO-TV
"I've been very vulnerable, and I've been allowing him to say things to me that shouldn't be said, and after a while I was just worried about being terminated from my position at Taco John's," the teen said.
The verbal abuse escalated, the teen said, and the manager pulled him into his office and gave Brandt a nametag that read "Gaytard."
"I put it on because I didn't want to upset him, and I felt that if I did do anything to upset him, it would cause me to lose my job because he'd be looking for ways to fire me," Brandt said.
