Chipotle has rehired a manager after more information came out regarding a controversial viral video where staff were seen refusing to serve a group of black men.

The manager, Dominique Moran, lost her job after video circulated on Twitter Friday of her denying the group service at a restaurant in St. Paul, Minnesota — unless they could offer payment upfront.

A man named Masud Ali posted the video, tagging the chain restaurant’s account, where a Moran can be seen telling the men “you gotta pay because you never have money when you come in here, bro.”

“Ya’ll are basically stereotyping us,” one of the men says in a video. “You’re saying we don’t pay, for what reason? I come here every day.”

Ali posted a thread of videos in which the group of men began arguing with Chipotle employees, eventually resulting in Moran calling the police. Chipotle tweeted later Friday that the company was firing Moran and re-training employees at the location.

“What happened here is not how our employees should treat our customers,” the company tweeted in reply to Ali Friday. “We are committed to treating all of our guests fairly and with respect. The manager has been terminated and the restaurant has been retrained so this doesn’t happen again. We’ll be back in touch.”
