Uncouth Taco Bell employees engaged in melee combat with some unsatisfied customers in Philadelphia, resulting in a shocking incident that was quickly recorded and posted to the internet.
The brawl took place on February 24, when customers expressed their displeasure with the long wait times for meal orders.
The video shows a hijab-wearing employee waddling out of the restaurant to join her coworkers who were beating the customers against the pavement. You can hear cries of “stop!” ringing out in the cold night air.
The video was taken and posted by a Twitter user who claims he was also attacked by the employees.
“I was assaulted by a number of @TacoBellTeam employees, when I reached out to @tacobell for justice they offered a $20 gift card, they must have thought I said Birthday
According to FOX News, customer Bryan Reese claimed that he had been waiting over 45 minutes for his food, with others waiting nearly an hour.
After a while, three of the employees jumped over the counter and chased him outside.
“I backed out of the store. They continued to follow me. They put me on the ground, and I don’t really remember too much else. Except for when I got up my girlfriend was on the ground being beat, too. She wasn’t even in the store at the time,” Reese said,
He was offered a $20 gift
While it is unknown whether or not criminal charges were pressed, Taco Bell reported that all the involved employees were fired.
“We’re shocked and disappointed to see this situation; we and our franchisees do not tolerate this behavior,” a statement read. “The franchisee who owns and operates this location is retraining its staff, and all team members involved have been terminated.” © 2019 Bright Mountain Media, Inc.
