There’s something about crab that makes people act up, especially when there’s not enough.
One person at a chinese buffet in #Queens caught a large group of 20-plus people at their worst on camera when the crab legs ran out! The massive caught-on-video brawl that happened late last month is being investigated.
One of the victims, who only identified herself as Christine, told the @nypost today that the smackdown started when her 10-year-old son was waiting at the buffet for crab legs and another woman “pushed him with her hip.”
“I was like, ‘Can you please do me a favor? I would appreciate it if you kept your hands off my child.’ And the mother comes over and she was like ‘You already had the first two batches,’” Christine said. “I said ‘Listen, he’s 10-years-old, he’s going to grab maybe six or seven and we’re leaving. We’re gonna’ keep it moving.’ And she turns around and she goes ‘Privileged white b***h’ and that’s when everybody came over and started screaming,” said Christine, who is white.
The whole fight was captured by customer Donna Brown, who posted the whole melee on Facebook Live.
“Listen y’all I had to come out here to let y’all see this. I’m in a buffet and they are fighting over crab legs” said Brown in one of the video clips.
Brown filmed for a whole 10 minutes! She shows how the fight started at the buffet and pointed out that things got real when they started throwing glass.
“My people are so ignorant over food. Over food. Crab legs, yo. You can’t make this up,” Brown said in the video. “You can’t make this up at all. You can’t make this up. I can’t believe it.”
Christine claims that she was left with her neck bleeding and had bruises all over her body from the fight.
“I have a bald spot from where they ripped my hair out,” she said.
The restaurant’s manager said that the fight involved two groups, a party of 16 and another party of seven whom he said were regulars. Both groups had kids.
The manager added that it’s not the first time customers have gotten into a fight over his restaurant’s crab legs.
No arrests have been made, but 10 people are being sought for starting the fight, according to cops.
Whew, chile! We’ll keep y’all posted on this one!
