An angry customer was caught on video slapping a Pennsylvania Burger King employee across the face during a heated rant.
The now-viral video, tweeted on Monday, shows the man standing inches from an employee’s face — without a mask — yelling about a female employee who he claimed “can’t count except for robbery and stealing stuff.”
“She needs to get the f–k out of here before I get her put in jail for the rest of her life,” he seethed while throwing menus into the employee’s face.
The startled employee reminded the man that he was on camera — prompting the customer to slap the worker hard across the face.
The man then makes his way to the exit.
Cops later caught up with the man, identified as Austin Addison, 21, charging him with harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, authorities told TMZ.
A witness told the outlet that Addison was looking for a female employee he apparently knew.
The witness claims Addison first threw his keys — and when he didn’t respond to the witness’ attempts to calm him down, that’s when the camera began recording the altercation.
Addison used to work at Harbor Freight Tools, according to the report, but wasn’t employed there at the time of the incident. Still, the company told the outlet it doesn’t condone its former worker’s behavior.
Fox News reported that Addison’s outburst was allegedly fuelled by racism, though there is no evidently racist language heard in the video.
