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.
You infidel whore...
SOP for the ROP.
No more KFC for me.
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.
Don’t Taze me bro.
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.
The employee was suspended and “offered counseling???”
How about FIRED!!
I don’t understand how the free world have become such wimps. And how did KFC become “halal” in the first place??!!
Amen to that!! Moreover, I tell them such to their face.
Just look at the nearest lawyer.
It might be a drag on their business if somebody “accidentally” spilled a can of bacon grease inside.
Just saying .........
Would you honestly place Judaism in the same league as Islam?
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”.
