The customer was reportedly identified as Austin Addison.
In the clip, which has been shared widely on social media, and earned the slapper the moniker “Burger King Kevin,” he is seen shouting in the employee’s face.
At one point, the man appears to be threatening either the employee, or a different person at the restaurant, to get them “put in jail for the rest of [their] life.”

The video begins in the middle of the incident. It is unclear what, if anything, prompted the man’s outburst.
The man storms out of the restaurant after the slap. However, he was picked up later and charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief, TMZ shared. He also reportedly was fired from his job after footage of the incident went viral.
A spokesperson for Burger King was not immediately available for comment.
