In what appears to be a Facebook post on a discussion thread on Reddit, a woman who had accompanied the child inside the restaurant described the entire incident.

Reddit also posted a tweet about the incident.

The woman, in her Facebook post, said that she, along with some of her friends, had gone to McDonalds and bought themselves Coke floats. When they came out of the restaurant, a poor street kid asked them for some Coke float and the woman decided to buy him a Fanta float.

She also asked the kid whether he would like to stand in line with her. After he agreed and stood in line with her, a worker from the restaurant "came and pushed and threw the kid out".

Even when the woman told the worker that the kid had come in with her, the worker replied by telling her that "these kind of people are not allowed inside".

The street child was forced out  of the restaurant but the woman still bought him the Fanta float and gave it to him outside the restaurant, she claimed.
