Kino Jimenez FIRED From RUMBLE Bar After Throwing Drink in MAGA Teen’s Face at Texas Whataburger
The man who went viral after stealing a teen’s Make America Great Again Hat then throwing a drink in his face has been fired from his job.
Hunter Richard was out with a few friends at a San Antonio, Texas Whataburger when the incident occurred. The man identified as Kino Jimenez is shown holding Hunter Richard’s red MAGA hat and saying: “F*ck the president. You ain’t supporting sh*t n*gga.” Jimenez then goes on to say “This is going to look great in my fireplace.”
So went out for a 2am snack and my friend (wearing a MAGA hat) had his hat stolen and a drink thrown in his face (and mine, you can see my arms on the left of the video) pic.twitter.com/B3QjBFIxPk

Hunter Richard, the 16-year-old teen who says he was wearing the hat, told WOAI that some of his hair was ripped off as the man removed it from his head.
“I support my President and, if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” he told the station. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”
Kino Jimenez was fired from his part-time job at a San Antonio Rumble bar after the footage began circulating on social media.
“It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery,” the Rumble bar in San Antonio posted on its Facebook page. “The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individual’s political stance.”
It continued: “We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for. THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE! No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here!”
