Shocking footage of brawl breaking out between two women at a McDonald’s was captured in Illinois over the weekend.
The fight, which took place at a McDonald’s branch in the city of DeKalb, was posted online on Saturday.
It remains unclear what kicked off the scuffle, but footage shows two women scrapping behind the counter of the fast food restaurant.
As the two ladies tussle, grabbing and punching each other as they bump into metal equipment displayed at the front of the restaurant, a man appears behind the counter to egg the brawlers on.
Wearing a Chicago Bulls NBA jersey, the man is seen shoving and barking expletives at another McDonald’s employee as she attempts to remove him from the work area.
Despite her efforts, the man shoves her aside and approaches the two fighting women.
Grabbing the hand of the customer – who he appears to familiar with- he drags her out from behind the counter while the McDonald’s employee manages to get her arms around his waist and pull him away from the area.
The man continues to yell expletives as they leave the premises while the employee who he shoved replies: ‘You hit a woman.’
‘I hit you,’ he asks incredulously. ‘F**k you shorty,’ he adds.
‘It’s on camera,’ she responds again before the footage cuts off.
The incident comes on the heels of another brawl at McDonald’s late last month, when a customer at a Nevada branch got into a fist fight with an employee.
The brawl was posted to Facebook and Instagram by Marie Dayag, who said the fight started when the customer tried to put soda in a free water cup.
Dayag wrote: ‘The lady asked for a water cup and supervisor shut down the soda machine because she wasn’t letting her get a free soda.’
Dayag’s video shows the two women arguing before the fight breaks out.
While the audio is difficult to hear, the row appears to be over money. At one point the woman behind the counter can be heard saying ‘since you can’t afford one’.
The customer can also be heard saying ‘that’s why your a** is behind the f***ing counter’ before throwing a French fry across the restaurant.
She can also be heard repeatedly shouting ‘fight me’ across the restaurant.
