A teenage worker who paid for a cop’s brownie out of his own pocket was allegedly called a “racist” by the family behind the officer in line because he wouldn’t buy cookies for them as well.

From The Daily Mail:

Zachary Randolph, 18, was suspended from his job at a Great American Cookies mall after he bought a police officer a brownie out of his own wages on Sunday.

The teen from Katy, Texas, said upper management put him on temporary leave for a week because another family complained that he didn’t buy their cookies as well.

Randolph said the customers in line who overheard the interaction became upset and threatened to beat him up because he was racist and promised to get him fired.

The incident gained national attention after Randolph’s mother Tami Kurtz Randolph posted about what happened in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

Here’s her post:

The Great American Cookie company reversed the suspension, writing on Facebook:
