BAY SHORE, N.Y. (WCBS 880) — A Long Island bagel shop customer was caught on video Wednesday morning going on a bizarre tirade about women treating him unfairly.

The eruption of words apparently started when a woman who works at the Bagel Boss in Bay Shore smiled at the customer Wednesday morning. He declared the woman was smirking and launched into a rant about dating sites.

“Why is it OK for women to say, ‘Oh you’re 5-feet on dating sites, you should be dead.’ That’s OK?” the customer can be seen yelling in a video that had been viewed nearly 6 million times on Twitter.

The two friends who captured the video, Olivia and Diana, took to Instagram to explain the situation saying the man had been screaming at the female workers in the store and Olivia had tried to stand up for the employees by asking the man to stop.

"She's just trying to do her job,” Olivia said of why she intervened.

They say after Olivia made a comment, the man began his tirade about women on dating sites and Diana began recording to ensure she had evidence if the man became physically violent.
