A boy’s McDonald’s meltdown has gone viral after he was filmed throwing a drink at a McCafe worker.

The boy was captured on TikTok throwing a drink at a McCafe staff member who appears to be trying to calm him down at a Thompson Lakes McDonald's south of Perth.

He walks away and then throws his cup at her.

The video then cuts to the boy, barefoot, standing on a counter. A staff member, possibly the same one he threw the drink at, looks on.

A man then grabs the boy by the shirt and pulls him down off the bench.

He then escorts the boy out of the restaurant and the boy tumbles to the ground as he goes through the glass door.

It’s not clear where it was filmed but it’s been widely shared on Australian social media. It’s also not clear if the man who removed the boy is a relative.

Shock at boy's Macca's tantrum

On Facebook, viewers were shocked by the kid’s tantrum.

“You best believe if the boys ever did that anywhere I’m yanking them and throwing them in the car,” one woman wrote.

Others called him “disrespectful” and asked “how hard can it be to respect your elders?”

“I would hate to be that kid,” one man wrote.

A McDonald's spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia the restaurant does not tolerate "any form of anti-social behaviour" at Macca's stores.

"The safety of our employees and our customers is our number one priority," they said.

WA Police have been contacted for comment.
