- A controversial video showed how the manager of a Checkers branch publicly humiliates one of his staff members
- The footage shows how the 2 men shout at each other with the manager cursing at the man
- The video invoked a strong reaction from South Africans with allegations of racism
A highly controversial video was shared via social media recently, which shows the fiery encounter between a Checkers supermarket manager and one of his employees.
The video was shared by twitter user, @AdvBarryRoux.
Based on the interaction, it seems the staff member is a merchandiser and the argument revolves around the packing of goods.
The two men can be seen shouting at each other, but the manager is clearly the aggressor.
The staff member doesn’t hold back either, but the manager eventually starts to curse and tell the employee to “f*** off out of the shop.”
Briefly.co.za noted the strong reactions from social media users.
It didn’t help matters that the manager is a white man, while the employee is black. As a result, allegations of racism were made.
The Checkers group responded to the tweet as well and condemned the behaviour.
Quite a few tweeps cautioned that racism may not be at play.
Not everyone agreed on the motive behind the verbal assault, but it was clear that the manager could have handled the situation in a more amicable and professional manner.
