Burger King Customer Slaps Employee ... Fired From Day Job

Exclusive Details
WANT IT MY WAY

1:36 PM PT -- Cops tell us the man, 21-year-old Austin Addison, was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

This Burger King lounge is anything but chill ... a customer slapped the hell out of an employee to punctuate a racist rant, and the incident was caught on camera.

Here's the deal ... the video picks up with the upset customer screaming about a BK employee who "can't count except for robbery and stealing stuff." Next, the man threatens to somehow get the employee put in jail for the rest of her life.

Sounds like he was allegedly shorted on some chicken nuggets and decided it would be a good idea to yell and scream at the manager, or whoever was working the counter, without a face covering ... and make his point with a slap to the face.

The open-handed slap allegedly came courtesy of a dude in Pennsylvania ... and it cost him more than the price of a Whopper ... his employer, Harbor Freight Tools, said Monday it gave him the boot.

The BK employee took it all in stride, and tried to warn the guy he was on camera ... but that didn't stop the slap heard around the lounge.

Amazon Hawking U.K. Shoes ... N-Word Used to Describe Color!!!

Exclusive

1:34 PM PT -- Amazon has pulled the item, telling us, "All sellers must follow our selling guidelines and those who do not will be subject to action including potential removal of their account. The product in question is no longer available."

Amazon's hawking a British line of men's shoes, but shockingly didn't catch the blatantly racist description for one of the shoe colors.

The "Florence Shakespeare" line is peddling its leather Oxford shoes, and the Amazon listing shows you can get 'em in lots of colors, including "N*****-brown." As of this posting ... those words, uncensored, are live on Amazon.

The rest of the posting reads like a normal shoe ad. The first line says, "Occasion:Whether you are working,driving,wedding,Business or other casual lifestyles it is a great choice to wear." However, the rest is jumbled with awful grammar -- so, it feels like something someone threw up as a racist gag/scam.

Still, the fact that it went live on Amazon has to make ya wonder what the screening process is like -- as in, do any human eyeballs get a final look before it's posted.

We've reached out to Amazon for comment ... so far, no word back.

Johnny Manziel Jumps Off Roof For Pool Front Flip ... Insane Video!!!

Breaking News
FEARLESS FLIP
@jmanziel2 / Instagram

Forget Johnny Football ... just call him Johnny Daredevil now!!!

Here's footage of former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel leaping off a rooftop and doing a front flip into a pool ... and it's INSANE!!!

Unclear where the debauchery went down ... but Manziel posted the video Sunday -- showing a slow-mo shot of him soaring roughly 20 feet through the air before splashing down.

It's pretty scary ... the pool ain't exactly huge, and he appears to be just feet away from the shallow end!!!

Of course, jumping off high things into water is becoming old hat for the recently retired football player ... it was just a few weeks ago when he posted vid of him throwing himself off a cliff.

CLOSE CALL

Don't worry, John's still alive and well ... and hey, the video is pretty cool.

BUT, BE CAREFUL, JOHNNY ... The Rock might need ya for the XFL soon!!!

Tekashi Shoots Music Video Upon Release ... Already Out, No Big Issues from Cops

Exclusive
BACK IN THE GAME
TMZ.com

1:14 PM PT -- Welp, that was fast. The video Tekashi was filming JUST THIS MORNING is already up out in the ether -- as in, it's up on YouTube mere hours after shooting it.

The song's called "PUNANI" and it features T69 and a bunch of his on-set buddies cruising around Brooklyn in a crap ton of Lambos and SUVs -- flashing cash, showing off hot girls, the usual really. It's not a bad song either ... as for the production value, we'll let you judge.

Now, if you watch it ... you'll see that the dude and his posse are on the move and kinda all over the city -- or at least all around that borough. There's a part where they're on the bridge on top of the cars, seemingly driving recklessly ... which has caught the attention of NYPD.

Law enforcement sources tell us they're alarmed at the behavior and could potentially summons him for violating basic traffic laws, but we're also told ... it doesn't sound like any criminal charges would stick to him from this. Also, dude didn't need a permit for the way he was filming ... which was basically guerrilla-style. So, no harm no foul, really, legally speaking.

Anyway, here's the first of what we're sure will be many new videos and songs to come now that the boy is out and about. Be easy out there, 6ix9ine.

Tekashi 6ix9ine is fully free, having just completed house arrest, and he's already out shooting a music video.

We got this vid of Tekashi out in Brooklyn Sunday, bright and early (7:30 AM) .... alongside some super wild rides.

It's no surprise ... a few security guards were patrolling the area, along with a massive entourage. Security was blocking several streets, stopping drivers from coming through. It's pretty clear they had permits to shoot the video ... otherwise, cops would have shut it down.

The cars are crazy -- 2 colorful Lambos, an orange McLaren, a yellow Dodge Charger and a Benz.

Tekashi, who was released from house arrest Saturday, is on 5 years supervised probation. Most people thought he'd go into witness protection, but he's shunned that, and the music video is evidence ... he's not hiding from anyone.

Microsoft We Wanna Buy TikTok ... After Chat with Trump

Breaking News

TikTok might become an American-owned company on the heels of the Trump administration's security concerns about the app -- if Microsoft can get a deal done.

The software behemoth went public Sunday with its plans, announcing it was pursuing to purchase TikTok from its parent company ByteDance, and Microsoft's CEO has already had a chat with President Trump about the potential deal.

It seems they're pretty eager to please the Prez, too ... saying, "Microsoft fully appreciates the importance of addressing the President’s concerns. It is committed to acquiring TikTok subject to a complete security review and providing proper economic benefits to the United States, including the United States Treasury."

In other words, they're gonna make sure they put "America first" here ... both on the security side and the economic side. Music to the administration's ears, no doubt.

There's more though -- Microsoft says it's planning to complete their discussions with the China-run TikTok team no later than September 15 -- and in the meantime ... they'll continue to brief Uncle Sam and co. on where they stand. Sounds like the feds are onboard with this.

Remember, last week Trump said he was considering banning TikTok from the States outright -- BUT, he also said they were looking at alternatives ... Microsoft included, apparently.

One last thing on how Microsoft plans to address Trump's security concerns ... they say, among other measures, their crack team will ensure that all private data of American TikTok users is transferred, and any still out there being stored in foreign servers ... will be deleted.

No word on a price tag yet, but the bottom line here -- all the viral TikTok'ers out there are probably safe for now, and still have a home. PHEW ...

Dunkin' Donuts Cop's Coffee Runs on Phlegm ... Chicago Employee Busted

Breaking News

America might run on Dunkin' -- but one of the chain's employees allegedly runs on hatred for police, 'cause he got busted for spitting into a cop's morning cup o' Joe.

This man here -- 25-year-old Vincent Sessler -- was arrested in Chicago after a state police officer claims he innocently ordered a cup earlier this week from the Dunkin' Donuts where Sessler works ... and upon removing the lid to cool it down down, discovered some fresh phlegm sitting on top.

Police have a much more descriptive way of putting it though -- they say the officer "observed a large, thick piece of mucus which was later confirmed to be saliva" floating inside.

Chi-Town authorities also say that after an investigation was conducted, they arrested Sessler for disorderly conduct, reckless conduct and battery to a peace officer. Someone even posted a photo of the alleged loogie ... it's gross.

The director for the Illinois State Police slammed the alleged crime, saying the men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line every day don't deserve this type of treatment. He added, "They deserve better than this insulting and dangerous treatment. For their safety, ISP officers and employees will be prohibited from patronizing this location."

Racism in America Self-Declared White Supremacist Viciously Punches Woman

Breaking News

One of the most vile, disgusting displays we've seen in a long time went down in Nokomis, Florida, when a white supremacist spewing his love for Trump and hatred for others violently attacked a woman.

The self-proclaimed Aryan and white supremacist, Nicholas Arnold Schock, went on a rampage inside a restaurant and began screaming, "I'm a white supremacist, Aryan Nation will rule the world. People covered in tattoos are gonna be my closest relatives, I promise you."

Someone at the restaurant asked him to pipe down because kids were present, to which he responded ... "I don't give a f***, call Donald Trump, please."

And then, he hurled some disgusting obscenities, and as he tried to make his way inside a female staffer blocked him, and then, with all his might, unloaded a punch to her face.

The crowd clearly had enough, tackling the guy and taking him to the ground.

Schock was arrested and charged with battery and disturbing the peace. He's still in custody.

America, 2020.

Donald Trump Supporters Confront BLM Protesters ... You're Attacking Our White Heritage

WHITE NOISE
Eddie Dorman/Facebook

A group of angry Trump supporters went on a tirade against a handful of black lives matter protesters, with the leader of the group declaring, "You're racist against my white heritage."

It's an ugly scene that played out in Keystone Heights, Florida, where 4 BLM protesters were across the street from the Trumpers. The group waving "Trump 2020" flags, along with some confederate flags, were taunting the protesters.

They claim the BLM protesters are racist, and then there's this. When the group learns one of the BLM protesters is holding a sign that says, "Start Healing," the leader of the group says in response, "We ain't hurt you yet, motherf***ers. We can get you something to heal up motherf***er real quick."

And, there's more -- a lot more. There's a man holding an American flag in one hand and a sign in the other which says, "Burn Loot Murder = BLM."

White Supremacists Arrested for Hate Crimes ... In Road Rage Incident

Two white supremacists were arrested Friday for attacking a vehicle with a shovel, after the woman screamed at the people inside the car, "only white lives matter," and her husband got all Hitlery with the Nazi salute, declaring, "white power."

The incident went down in Torrance, CA, when Gregory and Rachel Howell got involved in a road rage incident ... this according to the Torrance Police Dept.

HATEFUL RAGE
@izzeee.e/Instagram

The woman inside the vehicle recorded the confrontation. The hateful comments and gestures apparently weren't enough for the married couple, because the guy went back to his truck, grabbed a shovel from his pickup truck and used it to go wild on the car, striking it several times before the driver beat a hasty retreat.

The incident went down a week ago, and the couple was arrested Friday for vandalism and hate crimes.

Walt Disney & Mickey Mouse Sign Rhode Island Tax Refund Checks Officials: We Goofed Up!!!

Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse are giving away money ... or so it seems after nearly 200 people in Rhode Island mistakenly received tax refund checks signed by the Disney duo.

The hilarious technical error was discovered when some people received checks with a Mickey signature under the general treasurer line, and Walt's name signed under state controller.

Hold on to your mouse ears hat -- Rhode Island officials say this was a technical glitch. The Disney signatures are used by the Rhode Island Division of Taxation on test files. They were never meant to be stamped on the 176 live checks mailed out ... mostly to business owners.

For the record, officials mailed out new checks with the correct signatures. And, in case you're wondering -- Seth Magaziner and Peter Keenan are the state's real treasurer and controller, respectively. Chill out, guys ... you haven't been replaced.

And, here's a fun fact raised by The AP in its report on the tax flub: "Mickey Mouse is the cartoon character that was animator and producer Walt Disney’s first big hit."

You don't say?!

George Floyd 3D Hologram Triggers Racist Woman ... 'Look at That N*****'

FULL OF HATE
Storyful

The sight of a George Floyd 3D hologram is pissing off racists -- at least one of whom flew into a rage and spewed the n-word at spectators.

The disturbing altercation went down in Richmond, Virginia where the Floyd hologram was projected above the site where a Robert E. Lee statue had stood a month ago. As a crowd gathered for the event, a white woman started yelling, "This is my city" ... prompting some people to push her away.

The video, shot Tuesday night, really amps up, though, when she screams ... "Look at that n****r s**t!"

A nearby man immediately told her to get lost (that's the clean version) -- at which point several people shoved her away from the event ... narrowly avoiding more violence.

The event was dubbed "A Monumental Change: The George Floyd Hologram Memorial Project." As we reported ... the hologram first appeared in Richmond and it'll make stops at 5 other sites including some in North Carolina and Georgia.

The tour will pretty much follow the same route as the 1961 Freedom Rides during the Civil Rights era -- hopefully, with far fewer racists outbursts.

Sen. Tim Kaine Trump's Not Delaying Election ... GOP Senator Agrees

Exclusive
NOT HAPPENING!!!
TMZ.com

This is unusual nowadays, but senators on both sides of the aisle are in agreement on something -- President Trump can float the idea of election delays all he wants ... it ain't happening.

We got Sen. Tim Kaine -- a Virginia Democrat and former VP candidate -- on Capitol Hill Thursday, and he reassured voters ... POTUS simply doesn't have the authority to push the November 3 election date.

Now, he admits it might be a challenge convincing the Prez of that, but he also thinks POTUS might have an ulterior motive for raising the issue in the first place.

FOLLOW THE RULES
TMZ.com

Sen. Kaine has faith members of Congress -- including Republicans -- will make sure the election goes down as scheduled, and Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana lends credence to that.

Cassidy is a GOP'er and went a little softer on Trump, naturally, and attempted to explain where the Prez was coming from when he tweeted, "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???"

But, he still came to the same conclusion -- Sen. Cassidy tells us there's no need to delay the election, and he'll support the winner, because the U.S. Constitution tells him so.

As we reported ... Trump's using the false notion of rampant fraud connected to mail-in voting as the basis for all this postponement buzz.

So far, he doesn't seem to have much support, even within his party -- but again, even if they did back him ... the Constitution does not.

NYPD Sending Counter-Drone Team To U.S. Open ... No Fly Zone

Exclusive

The U.S. Open has a 'Rona problem and a Drone-a problem -- meaning there's concern about unmannned aircrafts infiltrating the tennis tournament ... and the NYPD is on the case.

With the U.S. Open set to go down in New York on Aug. 31, organizers have already said no fans will be allowed to attend the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sources tell TMZ Sports ... law enforcement is now anticipating an uptick in drone activity around Flushing Meadows from both journalists and fans trying to get a bird's-eye shot of the action.

We're told ... there are concerns about athlete safety and also the possibility of drones creating distractions during tournament play that could affect the event.

The NYPD tells us they will "have a counter-drone team" at the event to keep watch for anyone who violates drone laws.

"Drones are illegal over New York City and anyone using one needs to basically have a pilot's license and a flight plan," an NYPD spokesperson tells TMZ Sports.

So, how will cops catch the drone violators? We're told the NYPD will use sensors that can detect signals from drones and the handheld devices that control them.

If caught, illegal drone operators could face stiff penalties -- especially if an out-of-control drone strikes a person.

Bottom line -- just watch the action on TV.
