Deandre Byars, who claims to work at McDonald’s, took to TikTok to share what really happens when customers ask him for fresh fries in a behind the scenes video that has since gone viral
A McDonald’s worker has revealed how he treats “rude customers” who demand fresh fries.
Deandre Byars, who claims to work at the fast-food restaurant, urged customers to “stop being rude” to staff in a now-viral TikTok video, where he’s known as @dresav92.
In the clip, he revealed what happens “when you demand fresh fries at McDonald’s”.
Instead of making a fresh batch, as you may have expected, Deandre simply reheats them.
He begins by throwing the cooked chips that are sat in a heating station back into a frying basket to dip them in the oil for a quick fry.
He leaves it in there for a few seconds before taking them out and putting them back into the packaging.

Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 129,000 likes and thousands of comments from divided viewers.
One person said: “How is asking for fresh fries rude? I swear people love to do the bare minimum,” to which Deandre replied saying: “Demanding and asking are two different things.”
Another joked: “Then you have to remake them because we all know they’re not fresh and complain, so you’re really playing yourself.”
A third person said reheating the fries is unsafe “because the salt ruins the oil.”
But surprisingly, the majority of people didn’t seem to care as long as their chips were warm.
“Lol that’s fine as long as they’re hot,” one said.
Another added: “Literally as long as they aren’t cold, tough or soggy [I don’t care]. If that fixes it then I’m cool with it.”
While someone else advised: “Always ask for fries with no salt and they will a hundred per cent be fresh! Bring your own salt!”
