Employees and customers alike at a Minnesota McDonald’s suddenly found themselves in the middle of a soon-to-be-ex-employee’s destructive freakout.

In the video below, an unidentified employee at the McDonald’s near the corner of Snelling and University Avenues in downtown St. Paul can be heard screaming about his hours and the restaurant’s refusal to pay him what he’s owed. The man then punctuates his profanity-laden rant by stomping around the counter area and completely destroying anything and everything in his path.

McDonald’s has not issued a statement as to why the employee was angry enough to engage in a public meltdown and almost-certain employment termination.

Perhaps he was upset that the customer filming him was doing so vertically. Or maybe McDonald’s began paying him in love instead of money.
