The video sparked an outage and a very good discussion around whether Rayon McIntosh’s actions fall under the category of self defense.

One of the users TheJay9002 posts

”¬†Are you serious? Two people assault a cashier for no reason, he defends himself and you’re crying about the fact they were women? Thats the problem with women, they all want equality until they actually get treated like any man would, then you start crying and demand society’s protection. I’m 5’8 and weigh about 180, would that mean I could jump across a counter and assault someone twice my size and you’d start screaming when he knocked me the **** out? No, you wouldn’t think twice about it.”

Another user aqualung disagrees saying

Excessive force. Women didn’t chase him to the back office.

What do you think? Was excessive force committed by the McDonald’s cashier or is it a case of self defense?
