    This is the edited video (bleeps over the swearing) but it gives more detail in the print (also quoted below).

    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.
    Sounds like some customers went into a Halal friendly KFC and asked for bacon when they don't actually have bacon. Anyhow - the "employee" deserves the sack, "counselling" is not the answer to a poor quality employee.

    Not Halal would be the Muslim equivalent of not kosher wouldn't it? That sign would lead you to believe this was in a Muslin country or area, and that serving non muslim food would be ok at the restaurant, which the guy working there would know. I would have to guess he is not upset at the bacon aspect, though really it's impossible to tell, and damn did he overreact.

    Edit: Infinate Chaos beats me by a hair with more and better details, though I am confused. What he quotes says it is Halal friendly, but the sign says "Not Halal".

    Same here.


    You know what halal means, and certainly there is NO bacon that's halal period. It's not usual to see such a sign unless there are a decent amount of muslims patronizing that KFC. I'm just saying it may lend a bit of credibility to the bacon theme of the story and the guy might have been very insulted initially about someone asking for bacon, and then got more pissed off at someone recording him being pissed off.

    Hard to tell. All of this is supposition given the little bit of video available.
    I know what Halal means, but the sign says not halal, which makes the "asking for bacon was extremely offensive to him" theory seems even more unlikely to me.

    Now, I would guess that there was some sort of altercation going on about the bacon, given the fact that it gets mentioned, the manager-esque dude seems to be placating the customer, and the camera was turned on to begin with (who turns on the camera while ordering food at KFC unless there is something going on already?).

    What we don't know is if Angry Ahab became that way over the mere request for bacon (which would be truly insane) or if the customer had said something that pissed him off (which is not all that unlikley at a fast food restaurant). We do know that what really set him off was being recorded. Perhaps he fears that recording him will steal part of his soul or something.

    Thanks. From the way that teh article describes it, the following does seem like a likely scenario to me:

    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.

    That was the American Indians who thought that right?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He might be on a terrorist watch list and afraid that someone will recognize him in the video. If that's the case, I would venture to say that his reaction made things worse for him.

    Does no one find it odd/interesting that someone goes into a KFC with many Muslim workers/patrons, with a camera, orders bacon, bitches about not getting it, and records the whole thing?
