Fight breaks out over McDonald's slushie flavours

Earlier this month, a woman was filmed attacking a McDonald's staff member after she was told she could not mix slushie flavours.

The incident happened in the US state of Ohio and a witness told Cleveland 19 News the customer became "increasingly irritated and combative" and then tried to force her way behind the counter to make her own drink.

In the end, a staff member stood up to the woman, pulled her to the ground and repeatedly punched her in the face.

On June 11, a brawl broke out at a McDonald's in Brazil when the restaurant ran out of Big Mac burgers.

The violent altercation was filmed and went viral on social media.
