A viral video shows a customer inside a New York bagel store losing it because he says women reject him over his height.
The man, identified as Chris Morgan, lives on Long Island.
“Why is it OK for women to say, ‘oh, you're five feet,’ on dating sites, ‘you should be dead?’ that's OK?” he screamed during the incident.
When it was pointed out to him that no one in the Bay Shore, Long Island bagel store, Bagel Boss, said that to him, he replied, “Women in general have said it on dating sites.”
One customer told Morgan to calm down and the caustic man got in his face, screaming, “Dude, you want to step outside? You want to step outside? I'm not scared of you, pal.”
Another man off camera could be heard telling him to cool off, which prompted Morgan to say, “Go ahead and attack me.”
The man who was off camera lunged at Morgan, bringing him to the ground while telling him “That is not how you speak to people.”
Back on his feet, the ranting continued and he aimed his anger at the female staff working behind the counter. Finally, he was shown the door.
The video exploded on social media, with 21 million views just on Twitter after it was posted earlier this week.
"He was degrading us as women and that is not right,” one Bagel Boss employee told Inside Edition.
Morgan spoke with Inside Edition about the video.
"Just constant, the faces people make, the disrespect,” he said on what provoked the attack.
When asked if a bagel shop was the place to take out his anger with other customers in the store, he simply quipped, “Why not?”
He then snapped back, saying, “What do you mean 'take it out?' You act like I committed a mass shooting or something.”
He then referred the man in the video who tackled him, saying, “That guy, twice my size, that women love – the bullies, attacked me.”
Morgan then told Inside Edition producer Allison Hall, who conducted the interview, “I don’t really like you that much, so, this interview is over.”
Morgan has posted on YouTube videos of other nasty confrontations he said began over quips about his height.
In one video, taken at a 7-Eleven, he slams workers for coming from Pakistan and claims they always make fun of his height.
In another video, taken at a bar in Bay Shore, he confronts a man who he says disrespected him over his height.
He also claimed in a video a neighbor threatened to punch him.
“You threaten to punch, a guy that's half your size?” he said.
