HUNGRY customers at a bagel shop were left in shock when a furious short man launched into a misogynistic rant after a female staff member smiled at him.
The small man yelled: “Why is it OK for women to say, ‘Oh you’re 5 feet’ on dating sites — 'you should be dead'. That’s OK?” launching into a furious tirade against women, before being tackled to the ground by a much taller customer.
In a twitter thread, several clips show the man angrily ranting about women being rude to him on dating sites because of his height in response to a young woman who asks: "degrade [ing] women, why is that okay?"
An incredulous woman asks "well who said that to you here? Nobody," to which the man screams: "Women in general!"
"Everywhere I go I get the same smirk – with the biting lip," the short man yells, furiously gesturing to his face.
Then the short man advises a turquoise shirted do-gooder who tries to calm the situation: "Shut your mouth, you're not God or my father, or my boss.
"Dude, you wanna step outside? I'm not scared of you pal," he insists.
A second man, in a blue shirt, steps forward firmly telling the short guy to "shut the f**k up."
"Go ahead and attack me then – go on," the tiny temper says, instantly regretting it as he is grabbed by the throat and thrown to the floor by a much taller man.
"You don't talk to people like that," the man tells him, heroically.
18-year-old Diana Reyes, who filmed the incident, claims she wanted to catch the the bagel shop rant on camera in case anything serious occurred.
“It was insane. I personally never have heard anyone say that [comment about men under 5ft] but to be there in person, it’s insane to see that someone has that mind process,” she said.
The manager of the bagel shop, Patty, said the altercation began after a female staff member who was serving the man smiled at him.
"He just went totally nuts. He said ‘why are you smiling at me?'” Patty recounts.
“He started saying 'it’s because I’m short and nobody wants me.”
Speaking of the tall man who tackled the shortstop to the ground, Patty describes him as her "hero".
“He is our hero, if he didn’t tackle him it would’ve gone on and on” she said.

Accompanying clips in the twitter thread show the man, asked to just take his bagel and leave, throw his food to the ground before changing his mind and turning back to collect it – still raving about "women in general."
Staff say he never did pay for his bagel.
The shop and its workers however, aren't letting the strange incident affect them too much – and are planning on baking "angry cookies" to sell tomorrow.
