Short Man Who Lost It In Bagel Boss Says He's The New MLK JR [Video]
A Long Island man has become the latest subject of internet infamy thanks to a video showing him ranting at his local Bagel Boss about the dating problems faced by short men. Chris Morgan, who is 5-feet tall, ranted at female employees over how other women have treated him during his attempts at online dating.
Fox News reported that Olivia Shea posted the footage to her Twitter account with the caption, “so in bagel boss this morning, the misogynistic d----ebag seen in the video was degrading almost all of the female staff as well as other patrons. F--- this guy.” Since she uploading it, the video has been viewed over 20 million times.
The incident occurred Wednesday around 9 a.m., The New York Post reports. It’s unclear what exactly sparked the tirade, but it appears he got upset when an employee of the bagel shop allegedly smirked at him.
“He just went totally nuts. He said ‘why are you smiling at me?'” a manager of the shop told the Post. “He started saying it’s because 'I’m short and nobody wants me.'”
After yelling at several customers and making comments about how women won’t date him, the man began challenging some of the male customers to fight him. The shocking footage ends with him getting tackled.
Others might find it embarrassing, but not Morgan, who is using the notoriety as a way to make some bold claims. For instance, Morgan reportedly told New York City radio station Hot 97 that he’s “the modern Martin Luther King” of short people, according to HuffPost.
Morgan also told the New York Post that the rant against women has actually improved his dating prospects.
“I got girls hitting on me I don’t even know,” he said.
Morgan’s rant came as a surprise to the Bagel Boss employees and customers, but apparently it’s quite “on brand” for him. Inside Edition reports that Morgan has a YouTube channel where he can be seen confronting others he claims are making fun of his height.
