One bagel shop customer proved that there is no height requirement when taking patrons on an emotional roller coaster after he launched into a wild tirade about how women view him. Shocking video filmed by Diana Reyes, 18, shows the irate customer shouting at staff at Bagel Boss East in Bay Shore, New York, on Wednesday. Reyes told the DailyMail.com that she and her friend – 19-year-old Olivia Bradley – were waiting in line for their breakfast when the man started mouthing off in front of them to staff.
‘He just seemed a little agitated and as soon as the woman turned her head, he started going off,’ Reyes said. ‘No one provoked him.’ The brief clip shows a woman asking the man why it is OK to ‘degrade women.’ The man retorted: ‘Why is it OK for women to say “Oh you are 5ft’ on dating sites. “You should be dead. That’s OK!’ As other patrons point out that no one has said that inside the establishment, the Napoleon-esque man asserts that ‘women in general’ make the distinction.
The vertically challenged patron then shouted: ‘Everywhere I go I get the same fucking smirk with the biting lip.’ A man in the store, who is twice the angry customer’s size, tries to get him to calm down. ‘Shut your mouth,’ he stated. ‘You’re not god, or my father or my boss.’ The little man tells the larger man he isn’t scared of him and chest bumps him in an attempt to intimidate him.
But as he continues boasting about his fighting abilities, another man comes and slams him to the ground. Additional clips show the man storming out of the store as employees try to hand him his bagel. Reyes shared that she started filming when the man stepped closer to her and Olivia. ‘He stepped a little closer to us and I started filming in case anything would happen. The first thought in my mind was safety. I wasn’t in fear for my life I was just a little concerned.’
The 18-year-old also said that the man who tackled the angry customer, immediately letting him get up and walk away. Reyes described that when police arrived, they spoke with staff and various patrons approached them to tell them what happened. ‘We left after the officers,’ Reyes added. ‘This was just a trip to get breakfast. ‘It is really mind-blowing because that bagel shop is near and dear to me. We were born and raised here and that shop is a place you go to your entire life.’
Reyes is shocked by how viral the video has been. It has been viewed more than 4million times. But the bagel shop regular asserted that she didn’t hold too many ill feelings toward the patron. ‘He’s human like everyone else,’ Reyes explained. ‘Everyone has their bad moments and this is one of his. ‘People need to just learn that if you’re having a bad day, it’s not a good option to take it out on the public. You never know who is around.’ Suffolk County police said that they responded to the scene but no arrest or charges have been made. Bagel Bros told the New York Post that the man did not pay for his bagel – a whole wheat bagel with one egg white and swiss cheese.
