"The car engine will blow up or have issues and he would go and say 'oh you blew it up, you Arabs always like to blow things up,'” Musa told WABC. "In the past, he had joked about feeding me bacon bites."

Musa explained that this was just the beginning of a feud that continued during his time there. There were more examples of this type of behavior by his former manager, he said.

Musa filed a complaint with human resources a day after the incident and his manager was fired.

Just last month, the manager allegedly came back to the office to pick up his personal belongings. The same day, Musa found bacon stuffed in his work clothes. Muslims are forbidden from consuming pork.

“Bacon fell out of my work shirt," he said.

Union police are now investigating it as a potential bias incident.

WABC hadn't heard back from Subaru after requesting comment Thursday.
