CJ McCollum calls out crying police officer over messed up McDonald's order

A police officer canceled her mobile order at McDonald's for fear of being poisoned and then she posted a video about it.  

Officer 'Stacey,' according to @tkag2020_ann on Twitter, had placed a mobile order for a coffee and a breakfast meal from McDonald's in Richmond Hills, GA.

After pulling up to the drive-thru window, the McDonald's employee told Stacey that her order wasn't ready yet and that she'd need to pull off to the side and bring it to her when it was ready.

When Stacey received just her coffee and not her meal, she decided not to take the coffee and then recorded a video of her explaining the situation while showing she was very distraught about it.

WATCH:

"I've been in this for 15 years and I've never had such anxiety about waiting for McDonalds drive-thru food."

Officer Stacey's anxiety is presumably linked to the alleged poisoning of three NYPD police officers at a Shake Shack. The incident was investigated and it was determined that the milkshake machine, which was undergoing more extensive cleaning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, had not been wiped down fully. No malicious intent was found.  

Officer Stacey remains concerned, however.

"Just have a heart and if you see an officer, just tell them thank you."

This video has been viewed 9.5 million times at the time of the posting of this article. 

One of its viewers was Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum, who also decided to weigh in. 

McCollum re-tweeted the video while saying:

I hope you got that same energy towards police brutality. If you can't handle the heat. Get out the kitchen. Happy Wednesday.

McCollum faced some backlash for his comment, but he didn't back down from it.  

New York Mets pitcher Marcus Stroman replied to McCollum's tweet expressing how the officer needs to get it together.

Can't believe she actually posted this expecting the world to feel sorry for her. Truly...nobody cares about your McMuffin. Black people are being murdered by police. Get it together lady. -- Mets pitcher Marcus Storman on Twitter

With the current Black Lives Matter movement and the movement against police brutally in our country, McCollum wants to make sure that the white women police officer knows --  "It could be a lot worse."

The Trail Blazers shooting guard recently joined Hashtag Sports for a conversation about his current ‘uncomfortable conversations' with his family.

"I'm feeling encouraged," McCollum told Hashtag Sports. "I've had some really good conversations with people. I've had some great conversations with my family. I think this time has really given you a moment to reflect and have uncomfortable conversations you wouldn't normally have. I've sat down and talked to my grandma specifically this week about what life was like in Kentucky. How she was treated, how she far she had to walk to school, when was the first time she seen someone lynched – those are the conversations that you wouldn't normally have with your grandma, but due to the extreme measures we are facing today, it's exposed me to a different world and now I have a different appreciation and understanding of what my grandma has actually gone through."

McCollum continued, "I'm just appreciative of those conversations that I can actually have. I'm not sure I would've ever had them, honestly… I'm not sure I would've been comfortable enough to ask those certain things, but I'm glad I'm able to have those moments and really get an understanding of how we've evolved as a country and how far yet we still have to go."
