The video started when Addison was seen being angry about the actions of another worker who was not seen on camera, accusing her of robbery and threatening to have her locked up for the rest of her life.
As the Burger King worker on camera began to warn the customer that his actions were on camera, Addison was seen delivering an open-handed slap to the man’s face at a Pennsylvania restaurant.
He then allegedly walked out the door as the short clip ended.
