Here is what you need to know about Fontelar:
1. The fight started after Fontelar asked for a glass of water and tried to fill it with soda
According to Dayag, who filmed the fight, a customer asked for a cup of water and allegedly tried to fill it with soda. The McDonald’s supervisor turned off the soda machine to prevent the woman from filling her cup of water with a soda, which angered the customer.
In the original images, you can see the customer shouting “fight against me” and throwing a fried potato at the McDonald’s employee shortly before the fight broke out. The fast-food clerk comes out from behind the counter and the client throws a shake and hits him in the face with a tray of food.
The employee grabs the woman and starts hitting her repeatedly in the face while another employee tries to finish the fight. The employee violently balances the woman on a table and continues to beat her before the second employee tries to intervene. However, the second employee receives an elbow in the face in the process, gives up trying to contain it, and throws some blows herself.
The original employee who was fighting with the client recovers, throws the woman on the table again and starts shouting “you talk about my mom b-ch, my mom is not dead, you respect my mom”.
The employee begins to walk away before the client pursues her again, this time brandishing a chair. The employee takes the chair, places it back on the floor and moves away.

- nedcruzado @ kimche3e I did not have the right to throw a French-style potato, a shake and a metal tray on the employee’s face.
- mr.stockwell Do not throw people away and then expect them not to retaliate. You deserved that beating.
- jammywammih @octobers_first You completely instigated the whole fight by attacking the staff first with food, then verbally assaulted her and then hit her face with a metal tray. Then you hit her and she retaliated. YOU have more guilt than her. What she did was wrong, because she was not professional and was against the law, but she was also defending herself. You’re a thief, you little imbecile.
Other users defended themselves with vehemence, claiming that even though Fontelar started the fight by throwing food and hitting Chavolla with a tray, he did not deserve to be thrown on a table.
