Shocking video footage captured the moment she hurled meals and full drinks at stunned workers in the packed burger joint in Adelaide, Australia.
The woman, dressed in grey tracksuit bottoms and a beige jumper, could be heard shouting at the store manager: “He hit me bro, he hit me in the face bro.”
The man replied: “No I did not.”
“Yes, you f***ing did, there’s a video, you stupid f**k,” the blonde woman yelled back.
One of the McDonald’s workers could be seen trying to calm the woman down as she lashed out.
But as the store manager walked off, the out-of-control customer launched herself at the counter and spat at him.
It’s not known what sparked her frenzied rampage in the city centre restaurant shortly before midnight on Friday.
Shopworkers Union secretary Josh Peak slammed the “appalling” act.
He told Nine News: “It’s disgusting, it’s vile and no worker deserves to be treated like this when they are just doing their job.
“It is simply appalling there are some members of the public that think it is reasonable to treat a fast-food worker in this way.”
He added: “Time after time we are seeing examples of workers being abused and insulted at this shop.
“Bring back the security guards so that people don’t think they can get can get away with this sort of vile behaviour.”
Police are reportedly investigating the incident.
Last month, the penalty for assaulting retail staff in Australia was increased and those convicted now face up to seven years in jail.
McDonald’s Australia said it was supporting all the staff involved.
“The health and safety of our people and customers is our top priority,” a spokeswoman said.
“Anti-social behaviour is not tolerated in our restaurants and we expect our people to be treated with respect at all times.
“We will always do our best for our customers, but we won’t accept abuse, intimidation, threats or violence towards our employees.”
