The fight broke out early on Tuesday morning at the Liverpool One, UK, McDonald’s location.
After being informed that he couldn’t order chicken McNuggets because the restaurant had transitioned to its breakfast menu, the customer allegedly became upset. It was approximately 4:50 am local time when the incident occurred.
In the video footage, which contains explicit language, the McDonald’s employee, who was wearing a set of novelty holiday antlers, and the customer got into an altercation.
Two other customers, a man and a woman who repeatedly ask them to stop, attempt to pull the fighting pair apart, but the employee ultimately headbutts the customer, losing his antlers after delivering the blow.
When the worker headbutts the customer, a distinct thud can be heard in the video.
The fight soon escalates, with the customer attempting to punch the McDonald’s work in the face, knocking the employee’s glasses to the ground.
Another employee can be seen trying to intervene, but his attempt was unsuccessful.
During an interview, a McDonald’s spokesperson stated, “We take matters like this extremely seriously and can confirm the individual has been suspended.”
The spokesperson continued, “An internal investigation is taking place as a matter of urgency.”
According to a Fox News report, local law enforcement has stated that the incident was not reported to them.
