McDonald’s beating video goes viral (VIDEO)

A YouTube video showing a McDonalds cashier beating two female customers with a rod went viral and made headlines on Thursday. The McDonald beating incident reportedly took place in Greenwich Village, New York, and the ferocious beating was all captured on tape.

The McDonald beating video, which has got more than 551, 0000 hits, shows 2 women entering the store and placing their order prior to brawling with the cashier at the counter. The two female customers subsequently jump over the counter and attack the cashier, smacking him in the face after he questions a $50 note they have given him. The cashier gets infuriated, picks up a metal rod and starts beating them mercilessly.

Meanwhile, police have arrested the 31-year-old cashier, Rayon McIntosh. He was charged with felony and illegal arms possession.

According to reports, one of the female customers beaten by the cashier is still in hospital. She is said to have fractured skull and broken arm, while the other is said to have profound cut. Besides, the two women - Denise Darbeau, 24, and Rachel Edwards, 24, - have been charged with unruly demeanor and trespass.

According to prosecutors, Rayon McIntosh is a proven criminal, and was lately set free after he had served a 10-year murder sentence. NBC reported that it tried to contact his lawyer for comment, but he was not available.

Meanwhile, Carmen Paulino, the owner of the McDonald where the beating incident took place, has said that she was very disturbed by the incident.

"The actions of this individual are unacceptable and not characteristic of my employees," Paulino told reporters. "This individual no longer works for my organization."

Discussions over the internet center on the question of whether the beating of the female customers by the cashier was acceptable as self defense.

Susan Haines, who works in that area and frequently visits McDonalds, said, “These two women wanted to show they were strong and tough, at times you may come across someone who is stronger and tougher."

Moreover, the incident reiterated the fact that social media has the power in shaping and augmenting discussions and movements over issues relating to any sphere of life.
