You may have across a number of relationship mishaps at McDonald’s but this one takes the cake for tragic reasons.
28-year-old Luke Jones and 29-year-old Ryan Gould have a unique on and off sort of relationship. And recently, they were caught in the middle of a very unpleasant incident in public.
It was a nice and bright sunny day, perfect for a day out. For this reason, one woman took her disabled child out for a nice meal. Life wasn’t easy for her daughter as she was wheelchair-bound. But her mum did everything to make her smile, making sure she never felt less than any other normal human being.
But their day out at McDonald’s soon revolved into the most bitter experience of them all. And it’s all thanks to one couple, Luke Jones and Ryan Gould.
Here are the shocking details of the heartbreaking story that might leave you baffled beyond belief.
A day out in McDonald’s turns sour
Luke Jones and his partner Ryan Gould aren’t the average couple. Just like many others, they suffer from problems that make it hard for many to really understand their relationship. Unfortunately, their public dilemmas actually pulled in a mother and her blind daughter, who was bound to a wheelchair.
The mum from Manchester wanted to spend some quality time with her child and hence opted to have a comfort meal at McDonald’s but little did they know about what was really in store.
That same day, Luke and Ryan met the mum and daughter by chance at a famous place called Market Street. But again, they met her by coincidence at a nearby McDonald’s on St. Ann’s Square. This was just shortly afterward.
Fat-shaming at its worst
During the first encounter that the couple had with the mum and daughter, they blocked her path, confirmed prosecutors. But wait, that was just the start of their evil intentions. At that time, the mum came accompanied by another friend and her two young kids.
Out of the blue, Luke Jones told the mum to ‘calm down’ as no one was looking at her. In addition, he was daring enough to call her a ‘fat ugly mess’ too. “Just calm down and shut your mouth,” he again repeated.
The woman claimed that she felt as if the comments were more directed towards her daughter. And as an uber protective parent, she simply couldn’t tolerate it any longer. Later, however, Luke mentioned how the comments were made towards the mum herself, right after he overheard the mum having a conversation with someone else. On that phone call, the mum told her friend on the phone how people were staring at her.
The story picks up pace
Right after the pair had a row, they went face to face against one another. Soon, after a few minutes, they went their own separate ways, mentioned the prosecutor.
But wait, that wasn’t the end. Shortly later, they coincidently bumped into one another again at a McDonald’s restaurant on St. Ann’s Square. Here, Luke Jones made another comment towards the mother. He told her to force her daughter to keep it quiet. Moreover, he even went ahead and took a selfie with the mum in the background. Clearly, he displayed weird behavior the whole time.
Authorities rush to the crime scene
On that note, the mum confronted Jones and tried snatching away his phone for taking her picture.
Soon, a giant scuffle broke out.And that’s when Jones pushed the mum to the ground, causing her to fall. Next, Jones’s partner Gould became involved too and started using violent means to control the mum. At that point in time, complaints went out to cops, who soon arrived at the scene.
Clearly, this was a hate crime of the worst kind. Previous records showed how Jones served jail time in the past too for his crude behavior. Still, he continued to spread hate. The court convicted him again for posing as a threat with his abusive nature.
