Little man goes on big rampage in bagel shop, or Height Talk... Randy Newman was right

Honestly, this looks a little fake to me, but who knows...



Yikes! Dude's a dick, but man, you know he's been ridiculed his whole life to get where he is, not that it's an excuse, but it can't be easy. Probably the kind of guy that would still be a dick with a chip on his shoulder if he were normal height or even tall.

And OMG...

Spoiler:


But yeah, height is a big deal in dating - even though average height for North American males is 5'9", anything under 6' is usually considered "short" on dating sites.

His height has nothing to do with his asshole behavior. That's why he is, where he is, in a bagel shop, wreaking havoc on the world.

Little Short Asshole Man may have to explain to normal-height boss, too. Hope he loses his job. He belongs in a circus, not walking around without supervision.

As far as dating, most women don't go for INSECURE men like this. But I've also never heard of short men getting less sex, either. If anything...it's MORE.

I hate that video. Was the short guy being an ass? Yes. But the big guy jumping on him was a pussy ass move. Let the short guy run his mouth, laugh, get your bagel, and go on with your day. You're no hero for jumping on a guy who is clearly having a bad day and not hurting anyone.

He kept trying to order a 10oz latte with his bagel and the counter help kept saying, "oh, you mean a short latte?"

Yeah, dude was being an obnoxious ass, but he was harmless and not at all threatening - zero reason to get physical with him.

BTW, best part of the video is 1:14, with the girl bemusedly nodding.

Iíll admit he was being an asshole, but some of the people there clearly seemed to be antagonizing him and making the situation worse. The guy who tackled him was out of line if you ask me. He wasnít being threatening or anything and was just spouting off his anger.

Yeah I agree. Also it seems like folks were egging him on and just making everything worse. At the same time you can't allow his tirade to go on forever but yeah they could have just grabbed him and escorted him out like was done at the end instead of jumping on him. It's not like he was swinging around an axe or something.

I hate these videos that don’t show what led up to the incident. What started all this? I’d wager if we saw the whole video we might be on the short guy’s side.

I had heard on the radio that it started when one of the workers there was laughing and he assumed it was directed at him.

It should have just been the manager or a supervisor getting involved telling him to either calm down or escorting him out of the shop when he didnít. I totally agree that it seemed like he was being egged on by the other patrons.

There's a handful of other videos of this same guy going on rants at other people, saying some pretty awful shit. Some are his own videos, even. I don't think laughing at the guy for his height is of any value to anyone, and I think it's bullshit for strangers to think it's ok to poke fun at him for it, but... I'm not sure the crazy rants are a healthy way to go about dealing with it.

Fuck him. He got in the first guy's face, challenging him to a fight. Then he challenged the guy that did tackle him.

He obviously has a problem with women, too.

He ran his stupid little mouth off and got called on it. Then he cried about the guy being three times his size.

He got a channel?!?

He got no excuse. He just needs to hit the gym to lose that hobbit form (big belly) and pack some muscle to impress the ladies.

Yeah, he should have just been the bigger man.

When I saw this the first time, I went back and forth about whether the man tackling him was a crime or not. The shorter man had committed what constituted battery at about 30 seconds when he chest bumped the other guy. It's pretty borderline but a police officer who witnessed that could have made an arrest just for that (and likely would have just to defuse the situation) even though it is almost certain that no formal charge ever would have been filed. The guy who tackled him could very easily have just claimed that he saw the shorter guy assault someone else and was not going to take any chances. Between that and the fact that virtually any jury on the planet would have concluded that Short Round "had it comin'", I don't see the charge sticking unless he really roughed the guy up after he had him on the ground, which he obviously didn't.

Yup. I was going to link to the videos, but they've all since been removed. Watching them, it was pretty obvious that this dude was trying to go viral with his bullshit. Probably didn't end up the way he wanted, though.

There's zero excuse for his behavior, too. Just so that's clear. Dude's an asshole.

I hate the world we live in now. Look, look, look at me! Make me a viral superstar celebrity! Look! Look! I said look at me! I’m embarrassing myself so you will make me famous! Hey, hey, down here!

Most of the time I won’t click on videos linked on here just because I don’t want to encourage the person any more. I was hoping he was mad because Arianna Grande was licking all the bagels though.

Re: Little man goes on big rampage in bagel shop, or Height Talk... Randy Newman was right

Well I haven't watched his other videos but I feel sorry for folks that are really short like that. It does come with ridicule and they really can't do much about it - it's just the way they are. If they were born with one I doubt there'd be a lot of laughing and smirking by folks that are supposedly adults. Sounds like he's just at his breaking point. There's got to be a short woman out there for him but as others have said his asshole behavior outshines everything else. I think plenty of women could look past his stature but if underneath that is an of control jerk.. well.. then the size just becomes an excuse and not the problem.

This guy obviously has some anger management issues, which are a much bigger problem than his stature.

With that said, I do find it weird how women openly state their preferences for tall men in dating apps, while men who state their physical preferences are generally looked upon with disdain. But it's certainly nothing to go on a rampage about.
