A fight broke out between the employees of KFC Sheikhupura and a customer after a deliberate attack was conducted on one of the female employees.
In the footage, we can see a customer, who has been identified on social media as Yasir Jutt, charging toward a female employee who is handling the register. In a fit of rage, the man throws the LCD monitor screen and continues to try to attack the female, while a male colleague who was next to her tries to stop him.
Another video shows a number of KFC employees in uniform and inside the eatery beating the man who is attacking back as he tries to escape after he attacks the soda machine.
The videos are receiving mixed reactions on social media, while some are supporting the workers for standing up for their female coworkers, others are saying that the violence was not necessary and that the person should have been escorted out of the branch via security.
