An employee of a St. Pete fast-food chain retaliated after a man reached across the counter to grab her. The video, which has now gone viral, shows the altercation between the two.
After getting into an argument over the restaurant having no straws (because of a recent plastic straw ban), the man angrily approached the counter where the employee was working the register. He reached across the counter to grab her shirt, and she quickly defended herself, punching him in the head several times.
Many have rushed to her defense on social media, defending her need to fight back and even calling her a hero.
