That dumbass had no business putting his hands on her. She was right to defend herself.

Dude was lucky there was a counter between them. I hope he got his and that she was not punished.

So was she on that sh--uff?

And when she was clapping "you going to jail" she is on that.

The sad thing is, she probably got fired. The even sadder thing is, of all the "men" behind the counter, none of them stepped in and beat the fuck out of that customer. I give you a guarantee, that if that happened in any McDonalds, or any other place, around where I live, that guy wouldn't have walked out of there. Not a chance.

This place wouldn't be the place to discuss the finer points of that video


But on the other points of the vid...

A Florida man was booked on battery charges this week after he physically assaulted a McDonald’s worker during a dispute over a straw, an incident that has sparked outrage across social media.

The drama unfolded just after 6:50 p.m. at the McDonald’s restaurant at 4595 34th St S in St. Petersburg, Florida on Monday, according to witness Kinie Biandudi, who videoed the melee. The 54-second clip shows a white male customer reach across the counter and grab a Black female employee by her shirt, prompting the young woman to deliver several blows to the customer’s head.

“YES this really did happen last night for all those asking me … it all started because he wanted a straw!!!” Biandudi wrote on Facebook. “The young girl said she used to boxAfter this fight, he came back and went behind the counter & tried to fight the manager. The guy left before the cops arrived.”

A Pinellas County Police report identified the suspect as 40-year-old Daniel Willis Taylor, who is not only accused of assaulting employee Yasmine James, but also kicking another female employee in the stomach. Taylor, whom the report lists as “transient,” reportedly became upset over the restaurant’s policy requiring customers to request drinking straws at the front.

“[The] white male customer began arguing and belittling the young Black female worker because there were no straws out,” Biandudi explained via email. “She had kindly told him they were no longer allowed to put straws out because it’s illegal.”

She should not be fired for what is clearly self defense. Thanks to whomever videoed it, she has proof.

Exactly. She was attacked and defended herself. The other employees were late in assisting her. He grabbed her so fast and pretty much shocked her into self-defense mode. He was much bigger than her so that was enough for her to panic. I’m glad it was caught on video, because he probably would have lied and said she attacked him first. I wonder if that’s a habit of his attacking women. He had no right to grab/attack her.

Stand your ground/self-defense this collided with McDonald's dumb do not resist policy but when someone grabs someone and that close to the neck what is the lady to do? I would give her a promotion. Hell, she could have grabbed a McKnife and butchered the guy and I don't care it is standing your ground. Only you eat McDonald's. Do they only have sporks?

What are you outraged about today? CNN has not told you yet?

The problem is this happens almost daily in some fast food shit holes here in America. We unloaded our mental institutions onto the streets of America. Proof we don't have a gun problem but a mental illness problem.

She didn't get fired, but she did decide to take a leave of absence for a little while. Not sure if that was actually her decision, or whether it was McD's that made that decision for her. They just said she took a leave of absence. The man was arrested, as he should have been.

Excellent! McD’s probably didn’t want to get sued for not protecting her. Where was the Supervisor when this happened? So glad he got arrested. You just don’t grab someone behind a fast-food counter just because you can’t get a straw. The way he grabbed her so fast, would have shocked anyone into self-defense mode. He could have stabbed her. She was very lucky to get away alive. He’s probably used to grabbing women like that.

You just don’t grab someone behind a fast-food counter just because you can’t get a straw. The way he grabbed her so fast, would have shocked anyone into self-defense He grabbed it was shot anybody to go into immediate self-defense mode. He could have stabbed her. She was very lucky to get away alive. He’s probably used to grabbing women like that.

This happens daily but I have a feeling if it was the other way around someone would edit the fucking video and post it and create even more of a stir. People just try to create stirs and manipulate like the accusation that McDonald's fired her. Now people will question the other workers and supervisors actions?! Before you know it the lawyers will be involved. Welcome 2 America

Wow props to the little girl. She was on it! Her instincts and connections to his dumb face were amazing. And I agree about why none of her co-workers did more to help help her.

I feel bad for customer service workers like her as they have to deal with these types of people and worse on a daily basis.

Ok I've debated posting this vid. On whether I should or shouldn't, on whether here or make it's own thread. Basically I've noticed comments dancing around this subject here but not directly approaching it because of the environment here on this board. I decided not to cower and to just be my blunt self and see if it sinks or swim. It is a conversation people are having in a lot of places.

It's pretty sad that Hypoagency exists.
Women pretending to be weak or need help and men then helping them out just for the potential of attention. This whole 'act' just seems ignorant to me. From where I come from people just help each other no matter the gender or race, and of course there are people who won't help simply because they just don't care or have better things to do or whatever reason they have and that is also fine.
Only in a perfect utopia all people work together and help one another but that is impossible and wouldn't make us human beings.
