YouTube - KFC Muslim Employee Screams Insults At Customer Asking For Bacon

A worker at a KFC restaurant in Sydney has been suspended after he was filmed screaming vicious insults and threatening to attack a customer.

The violent outburst happened at a Halal-friendly KFC in Punchbowl on December 26, allegedly after a customer became angry after being refused bacon on their burger.

The Punchbowl restaurant does not serve bacon or pork in accordance with Islamic law, and one employee can be heard saying "we don't have bacon" before the other begins yelling.

"Don't record me bitch!" he screams as he approaches the counter. "Don't f---ing record me!"

The employee continues to yell and smacks the cash register display on its side, before other workers grab him and lead him outside.

"I'm gonna f---in break your head bro," he says to the person filming as he is led around the corner out of sight.

A spokesman for KFC Australia told ninemsn the employee had been suspended over the incident and offered counselling.

"KFC Australia strongly condemns the behaviour of the team member who appears in the clip and sincerely apologises for this very inappropriate reaction," the spokesman said.

But the spokesman also said the employee may have been harassed by the customer before his meltdown.

"As part of our continuing investigation, KFC has been offered statements from other customers who were in the store at the time," the spokesman said.

"These statements indicate a customer had directed offensive language and became abusive towards the team member when the customer's preferred selection was not available at that store."

The video was posted online by YouTube user "farkie", who wrote that the outburst stemmed from an argument over bacon.

"We asked for bacon on the burger, when we complained about there being no bacon," they wrote.

KFC said their investigation into the incident was ongoing. Source: NineMSN

And the prize for the most ill-informed youtube comment of the decade goes to 'time4sleeping' for this little gem:

Oh thats right, we came here & took over the Aboriginal culture just over 200yrs ago. We live a long time in Australia - fool. The British came and took over the land, not the Australians if you read your history books. Most Australians support and respect Aboriginal culture, there is a minority that don't but whether they are full blooded Australians we don't know.

That's almost as laughable as the vid...

When I was a student I wardened for a construction firm's private halls...part of my duties was to collect rent. One day after a heavy session the night before I decided to have the most mega bacon butty ever made along with egg and ketchup between two lumps of soda bread - pure beaut. You could bet your bottom dollar that any time I made food I would get a knock at the door from someone wanting to pay their rent.

That day it just happened to be from the complex's only muslim resident. "Oh f*cking hell!" I thought as I opened the door mid-munch, "how the fuck do I get out of this one?"

I didn't know whether to apologise or piss myself laughing at my lunch timing, in the end I did both but the muslim lassie seemed to take it in good humour and patiently waited while I went and put the sandwich in the kitchen and washed my hands.

Being a muslim must suck though, bacon is the food of the gods! That must be why they don't drink either... because if they did they defs would not be able to resist bacon hangoverbusters!

I've seen a couple of Muslims tuck into a bacon sarney in Egypt, then go off and pray to Mecca. They were on the dive boats (called liveaboards) which go offshore for a week at a time. Anyway, it's all religious over-zealousness as a pig is not unholy, just unclean and Muslims have chosen to become sensitive over it. A really good book called "Why I Am Not A Muslim" actually goes on to say that this (completely unavailable animal in the mid-east at the time the Koran was written) started off as being holy, then became forbidden then unclean. Now it has become unholy.

Whilst out earlier, I saw an advert for KFC breakfast items, including bacon and cumberland sausages, can't wait for the fallout from that little gem of an idea!

Can't see why they're not serving bacon when they're selling Popcorn Chicken and Nuggets which according to the sign on the fridge "are NOT HALAL".

I noticed that too, however erroneous fallacy on your part, Halal refers to food that has been slaughtered in the correct manner according to Islamic stricture, pork on the other hand is haram "forbidden", two different things altogether.

On a side note, I started out in hospitality at the age of 13, in the local village restaurant/pub in the 20 years since I have seen staff lose it at customers for all sorts of reasons, sometimes just a bad day, other because they have been severely provoked by the customers: waitresses throwing plates/drinks over customers because they are being sexually harassed or innappropriately touched, I myself threw a punter out deliberately smacking his head off a parked car for harassing my girlfriend of the time, I've chucked punters out on the street for trying to steal booze injuring them in the process, I've seen chefs storm out of kitchens and threaten customers with knives or throw food over them screaming all the while because the punter rightfully/spuriously complained about the food.

Anyone who has worked in hospitality can tell you the similar stories.

There is a hell of a lot more to this video than first meets the eye.

''Hospitality" eh? Maybe you need to rethink your career choice?

You CANNOT have a bad day in customer service, it's a bit like having an off day on a battlefield, it's just not acceptable. You should never shout and intimidate customers, ever. If he was being a plank he should have been asked to leave, and that's it. But his last comment was something like ''Let's go."

KFC's definition:

'Halal' is an Arabic word which simply means 'permitted' or 'allowed'.

Therefore, as the Popcorn Chicken and Nuggets aren't allowed, why stock them? Discrimination against infidels, I say.

Beacause there is a small degree of leniency, if there is no other food available Muslims are can consume non-halal foods:

Surah 2:173 states:
If one is forced because there is no other choice, neither craving nor transgressing, there is no sin in him.
Moreover the Quran allows leniency for foods slaughtered by Christians and Jews:

Surah 5:5 states:
"This day are (all) things good and pure made lawful unto you. The food of the People of the Book is lawful unto you and yours is lawful unto them."
So if a halal chicken is unavailable, it's ok to eat a chicken killed according to kosher laws, or killed by a Christian.

Pork is explicitly forbidden - absolute No, No if you want to be really strict about it.

As for discrimination against infidels - are Vegetarian/vegan restaurants discriminatory against meat eaters, are Surf & Turf Diners discriminatory towards vegan/veges? Are all those places that serve food with nuts in them discriminating against those with allergies, are producers of nut free foods discriminating against those who don't and so on and so forth. reductio ad absurdem.

If you look at point 4 on the link you provide it states
4. How will I know which restaurants are Halal and which are not?
Refer to the list of participating stores provided above. Our Halal restaurants will also feature the HFA (Halal Food Authority
So the store is advertised as such, just as a vege/vegan restaurant would be clearly demarkated as vege/vegan, or items on a menu are clearly marked as containing nuts so that a customer can make the decision or not whether to partake of the venue or product in accordance with their needs.

A KFC marked with the said logo would obviously not be serving bacon. There is no discrimination, certainly considering there are over 700 KFC outlets in the UK of which only 91 are Halal.

If you're heading that way...

5. Why have you chosen my store?
We have chosen a number of stores that are located within areas where we anticipate demand for a Halal offer from KFC. However, we are committed to offering our customers choice and there is a non-trial restaurant in close proximity. The restaurant manager or crew members will be able to provide you with the address details should you need them.

There's one KFC in Luton. It's Halal. 4 miles to the next one, 7 miles to the next nearest after that.


I'm all for inclusivity. Increase the choice. But this isn't. This is pandering to Muslims and telling the infidels to get fucked, we don't care about your trade.


I don't care to be stereotyped. I don't buy organic. I don't buy Halal. I don't buy vegetarian (I used to enjoy BK's Spicy Beanburger, but since they re-named it the Vegetarian Beanburger, it's been off my list). Even when I owned a 2CV, I'd make a public showing of eating bacon sarnies in it.


What's more annoying is that I can't take KFC off my places to eat out of principle. I don't eat chicken. It's fowl. I haven't eaten a KFC since 1983. The KFC that was near Kew Bridge. A week before it was closed down as a result of a vet examining the bones of the meal he'd eaten and found they were rat. He'd asked for 3 thighs and all were rat, so it wasn't a case that one had accidentally fallen in. And no, this wasn't an urban myth.


Rats aren't Haraam, are they?

What I don't understand is why the employee wasn't summarily dismissed on the spot for gross misconduct, wilfully damaging company property and obviously being deeply mentally unstable. Fills you with confidence in KFC that they were prepared to retain such a freak. There again, I suppose the job is so highly qualified that they need to hang onto trained staff.........

we had the son of a very as we thought devout muslim family staying with us while he was completing his falconry training, every morning he would be first down to breakfast ,and half the crispy bacon and fresh buttered toast would magically disappear, when I asked him what would his father say about him eating bacon , he answered absolutely nothing because he knows I will tell the Mullah about his secret stash of Chivas Regal!!

Well over half the Muslims I have known, drink, eat pork, and poke slappers when in the company if their Western friends, and only get all holy in the company of other Muslims. To see two blokes solemnly putting each other straight on points of doctrine after you've seen them both, at different times, feeding their hangovers bacon sandwiches and cider, is an interesting insight into the dynamics of that strange faith.

The most devout christian I know is a filthy, filthy young woman... maybe they like rules simply because they gain pleasure from breaking them?
