A man whose bagel shop rant went viral has called himself the ‘modern day Martin Luther King’ for short men and said he might press charges.
Footage of 45-year-old Chris Morgan was spread across the internet recently, showing him unleashing some seemingly bottled up anger about women on dating sites who commented negatively on his height.
Morgan, who is five foot, reportedly snapped after the girl behind the counter at Bagel Boss East in Bay Shore, New York, claimed she couldn’t understand him.
Take a look at what happened here:
In an interview with the MailOnline, the 45-year-old claimed he had asked for his order three times and that the girl had mocked him in a way which reminded him of being rejected for dates in the past.
The third time, she smirked with her friends. She was laughing and talking with her friends, putting her hand over her mouth and laughing, like girls do when they reject me on a date.

The topic of women must be triggering for the cleaning company owner as he went on to fire a few more shots towards females as he recalled the situation.
I’m sick of getting constantly lied to and used on dates. And then they dump me. They tell me I’m too short.
They don’t have a job, or a [j]ob as good as mine. They don’t have a car. They are more overweight… and they are judging ME?
I got to the point where I’d had enough.
The 45-year-old got much more than the whole wheat bagel with one egg white and Swiss cheese he’d ordered in the store as he ended getting tackled, instead. Though Bagel Bros told the New York Post he never actually paid for his food.
Footage showed Morgan squaring up to another customer before a third man suddenly tackled him to the ground.
He said he wants justice for the situation and claimed he’s considering pressing charges.
I was telling them I couldn’t breathe. The guy was holding me down. I had my shirt over my head and I was trying to call 911.
It was the big boys all the women go for, they jumped me. The women didn’t say nothing. They keep on choosing the wrong men. Is that all women want? Tall and with a big you know what?
I’m just not tolerating this any more. Some of those girls found it funny. That’s why I have resentment towards women. I find them all to be stupid, gold digging liars.
As if it wasn’t bizarre enough already, the interview took even more of a strange turn when the 45-year-old declared himself a ‘prophet’ and referred to himself as ‘the modern day Martin Luther King.’
I have a mission. The girls hate me, they don’t like me, that’s fine. ‘I’m not stopping and the world is going to hear me. I want equality for everybody.
Morgan’s rant reportedly isn’t an unusual scene as his YouTube page is said to be filled with clips of him getting in fights with gas station employees and mothers. Some videos contain racist language.
Diana Reyes, who filmed the video, said she and her friend were waiting in line for their breakfast when the man started mouthing off in front of them to staff. She claimed ‘no one provoked him’.
Suffolk County police said that they responded to the scene but no arrest or charges have been made.
