Local Australian news reports:
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.
The fast-food chain is reportedly looking into the possibility the employee may have been harassed by the customer in the past. On the filmer’s YouTube page, they write: “We asked for bacon on the burger, when we complained about there being no bacon,” before the employee began screaming.
