A video showing a wild fight between a customer and a Waffle House employee has gone viral.
The footage, which was captured at a restaurant on Buford Highway in Georgia, was posted on Twitter by @ATLUncensored early Sunday morning, and has already gathered nearly 1.5 million views.
The 40-second clip shows two women having an intense argument with a man sitting up at the counter. The video then cuts to a Waffle House employee pulling the man off his seat and pushing him toward the door. The instigator then turns around and punches the employee, who connects on several punches of his own, leading to an all-out fight between the two men.
The latest Waffle House fight arrives on the establishment’s 66th birthday. “66 years ago today, the first Waffle House was opened in Avondale Estates, GA!” the restaurant chain tweeted on Saturday. That original location is now actually a small museum. Sixty-six years later, there are 1,900 locations in 25 states.
“As this movement began to expand, new restaurants were built in Georgia as well as neighboring states, and the ‘Yellow Sign’ soon became a familiar landmark along city streets and interstate highways across the country,” the company wrote in a statement celebrating its birthday. “But more than that, Waffle House has always been about the people owners Joe and Tom cared about in 1955 – our Associates and Customers. Waffle House was founded on the principles of providing the friendliest service in town, while also offering the opportunity for rewarding and quality careers.”
