All they wanted was a couple of bagels. Instead, Olivia and Diana got themselves a viral video that’s been viewed millions and millions of times.
It all started around 9 a.m. at Bagel Boss in Long Island, New York. Olivia and Diana, a pair of friends documenting their morning, walked in for some breakfast.
At the register was a man who was visibly upset after a female employee behind the counter apparently “smirked” at him.
The angry man proceeded to unleash a verbal tirade over the fact he says women treat him badly and refuse to date him because of his height.
“Why is it OK for women to say, ‘Oh, you’re 5 feet,’ on dating sites?” he screamed.
“‘You should be dead’? That’s OK?!”
But the staff said no one in the shop had even said that to him. “Women in general have said it on dating sites,” he responded.
Olivia and Diana tried sticking up for the female employee, which only seemed to set him off further. Olivia stood there in shock, recording the incident on her cellphone. She posted the clip to Twitter, saying, “so in bagel boss this morning, the misogynistic [expletive] seen in the video was degrading almost all of the female staff as well as other patrons.”
The man continued berating the staff, going so far as to egg on the frustrated male customers by telling them to “go ahead and attack me.”
That’s when another (and much bigger) customer took him up on his offer …
No arrests were made, and no injuries were reported. But the man now claims his viral fame has given him more luck with the ladies.
