The chip-on-his-shoulder Long Island bagel shop customer whose viral rant about dating turned into a brawl is going back for another bite, he told The Post on Thursday.
“They just invited me over for a free bagel,” claims Chris Morgan, a 45-year-old Bay Shore cleaning business owner.
Morgan said his phone has rung nonstop after he was caught on camera Wednesday morning at the local Bagel Boss location, where he was lashing out over being repeatedly rejected by women because of his 5-foot stature.
“My phone is blowing up like the president,” Morgan told The Post. “I haven’t even got to my friends.”
And Morgan says the rant seen ’round the world has suddenly changed his luck with the ladies. “I got girls hitting on me I don’t even know,” he said.
Store employees said Morgan ordered a whole wheat bagel Wednesday and started “screaming about the dating sites and how women hate him.”
“Why is it OK for women to say, ‘Oh you’re 5 feet’ on dating sites — you should be dead. That’s OK?” Morgan roared at other customers Wednesday in a video shared to Twitter.
In the clip, Morgan sparred with customers before a larger, unidentified man told him to “calm down.”
“Shut your mouth. You are not God or my father or my boss,” Morgan fired back before the other customer tackled him to the floor.
Morgan, who is living in his van, told The Post that he already filed a police report and wants to press charges against the man.
But the store Thursday said they made no such offer for him to return to the shop, let alone get a freebie.
“No one invited him for a bagel. He’s not welcome,” Bagel Boss owner Mike Ficco told The Post.
