KFC employee screams insults at customer
ninemsn (Australia) ^ | Jan 5 2011 | Henri Paget

Posted on 01/06/2011 11:55:44 AM PST by Mount Athos

A worker at a KFC restaurant in Sydney has been suspended after he was filmed screaming vicious insults and threatening to attack a customer.

The violent outburst happened at a Halal-friendly KFC in Punchbowl on December 26, allegedly after a customer became angry after being refused bacon on their burger.

The Punchbowl restaurant does not serve bacon or pork in accordance with Islamic law, and one employee can be heard saying "we don't have bacon" before the other begins yelling.

"Don't record me bitch!" he screams as he approaches the counter. "Don't f---ing record me!"

The employee continues to yell and smacks the cash register display on its side, before other workers grab him and lead him outside.

"I'm gonna f---in break your head bro," he says to the person filming as he is led around the corner out of sight.

A spokesman for KFC Australia told ninemsn the employee had been suspended over the incident and offered counselling.

"KFC Australia strongly condemns the behaviour of the team member who appears in the clip and sincerely apologises for this very inappropriate reaction," the spokesman said.

But the spokesman also said the employee may have been harassed by the customer before his meltdown.

"As part of our continuing investigation, KFC has been offered statements from other customers who were in the store at the time," the spokesman said.

"These statements indicate a customer had directed offensive language and became abusive towards the team member when the customer's preferred selection was not available at that store."

The video was posted online by YouTube user "farkie", who wrote that the outburst stemmed from an argument over bacon.

"We asked for bacon on the burger, when we complained about there being no bacon," they wrote.

KFC said their investigation into the incident was ongoing.

Must be a cousin of Muzlim Rage Boy. “We don’t serve no stinkin’ bacon!” More proof they shouldn’t be allowed to live in Western countries.

Well, I’ll confess to be somewhat bigoted when it comes to the Muslim religion. Any restaurant/establishment claiming to be Halal compliant or Islam friendly can count me out as a customer.

Don’t be so quick to jerk your knee. This was Australia, not the USA. The Ausies vacilate between extreme liberalism and something akin to right-wing whackery. It’s possibly the most fubar’d of all Western nations.

It’s not a duplicate because this comes from a different source. There will probably be more stories on this, as there should be.

if it's in a spot where there's a heavy concentration of muslims, why not? it may be a sound business decision. as long as it's the business' choice, not forced islamification, who cares?
also, would you feel the same if it was a "kosher" kfc?

It might be a drag on their business if somebody “accidentally” spilled a can of bacon grease inside.

Go to a kosher KFC and ask for a Double Down with bacon and I bet the worst you get is world-weary shrug and eye-roll, perhaps accompanied by a muttered “Oy vey”.

Let me introduce you to the “search by keyword” feature of Free Republic. Search under “kfc” and you will find articles reporting that KFC was threatened by mooselims with boycotts, etc., if they didn’t go halal. I don’t call that a “sound business decision.” They caved in to the mooselim mafia.

As have most of the other fast food giants:

Burger King

Halal summary: Burger King in Singapore received its Halal status in 1996

Cute Ramadan Burger King Picture

….Burger King has been especially cool about extending the olive branch to muslims. There are Halal Burger King locations in Europe (and probably the Muslim world, but I only know for sure about the ones in Europe)and they put out ads like this.

Halal McNuggets a hit in Detroit

n September 2000, a McDonald’s restaurant in Dearborn, Michigan began offering a halal version of its chicken nuggets, in response to requests from area customers. Over the following year, sales of the unique item were so good that they expanded the idea to a second Dearborn location.

McDonalds finally admits to serving halal chicken to unsuspecting customers

Domino's pizza store takes pork off the menu to go halal-only

Residents have threatened to boycott a Domino's Pizza - after it took pork off its menu and now only offers halal food.

Customers in Blackburn are angry that the managers of the store - which is located in a heavily populated Asian area - made the move in a bid to attract more Muslim clients.

Pizza Hut cheese is now halal

One of our sisters has provided MCG the technical information about the sources of ingredients needed for the Halal status of Pizza Hut’s cheese on May 28, 2009.  After evaluating the technical information, in USA, MCG now considers the Pizza Cheese,  Regular Pizza Sauce used on the only following crusts to be Halal:

"As part of our continuing investigation, KFC has been offered statements from other customers who were in the store at the time," the spokesman said. "These statements indicate a customer had directed offensive language and became abusive towards the team member when the customer's preferred selection was not available at that store."
Note that the only other customer you see was wearing a colorful headscarf. Given that and given that after all it's a halal-friendly restaurant the other customers may well have been all Muslim. Would they place solidarity with a fellow Muslim over telling Corporate KFC the truth?

The Punchbowl restaurant does not serve bacon or pork in accordance with Islamic law, and one employee can be heard saying "we don't have bacon" before the other begins yelling.

Run the video to :23. Note the sign on the cooler in the background that says, in letters large enough to be visible to the customer, "NOT HALAL". Is it referring to the contents of the cooler? Does 'halal-friendly' mean 'no haram food at all served here'? Is there actually some haram food in that cooler? So then asking for haram food is not unreasonable.

Simply bring his own bacon on site, and then leave some leftovers with a nice juicy piece sticking out.

my whole opinion hinged on the *IF* they weren’t forced.
forced islamification should be met with equal or greater force of defense or retaliation.

It means even a mouth-breathing moron could have known there would be no bacon in that store, and that the readiness of a videographer to capture the scene demonstrates that a scene is what the demand for bacon was intended to provoke.

That said, the KFC employee should have been fired on the spot for rude and threatening behavior.

Probably the "mouth-breathing moron" had been exposed to this psycho and went about the business of exposing him to the world. He didn't just come up with the idea to do this without a reason.

See something, say something: It's what Janet Napolitano wants Americans to do. Aussies should do the same.

There was murder in that guy's eyes, over nothing. He's a ticking time-bomb. Now he's on the radar screen. Maybe he'll be stopped before he detonates his suicide vest.

PS - You're very comfortable being an ugly racist about non-minority people, aren't you?

Dude...if you don’t want to be recorded, you just politely tell them sorry, you don’t do bacon because you’re a halal-friendly store, and you send them to the one down the street. Doing what you did pretty much guarantees you’re going to get recorded, uploaded to YouTube, and pointed and laughed at.

Thanks La Enchiladita - much appreciated!

It appears they DO eat cheese in the Middle East:

Is cheese halal

I understand that cheese that contains animal rennet is not halal - as the rennet is taken from the stomach of new born cows (eurgh) and these cows are not slaughtered in a halal way.

Check the ingredients - you can get cheese that is vegetarian and will say so with a symbol and doesn't contain animal rennet.
