A TikTok bartender posted a security clip from her job that shows a woman throwing her margarita at the TikToker. The bartender said the woman did it because “a bug flew into her drink.” The bar is an outside bar and TikToker notes that it is on the beach.
Although TikTok is short and has received over 1 million views, the action happens in the last few seconds. The woman and a man – whom the TikToker later clarified was her manager – were seen chatting at a bar when the bartender walked past. The patron lifted the cup and threw its contents all over the bar and bartender. The two other men at the bar looked surprised, their mouths wide open.
@teamhellathick then uploaded a follow-up video, explaining what happened in the short clip. She said she worked at a beach bar and the woman bought the drinks without any problem. She then allegedly went back and complained her drink had gnat and the TikToker co-worker told the woman they were happy to make her new drinks but she would have to pay.
The TikToker then explained that the man in the blue shirt the woman was talking to was the manager. “Honestly, he would give her a free drink if she was happy about it,” said @teamhellathick. But, the bartender said that when she “didn’t hear what she wanted to hear,” she threw the drink.
She went on to explain that in hindsight, she might have laughed at the situation because it didn’t make any sense but that she was angry at the moment. She also said she has no plans to press charges.
