As a sign of the mounting chaos over panic buying amid the coronavirus pandemic in the UK, an elderly Sikh man was filmed being shoved out of a supermarket in east London after an altercation with the employees.
The unnamed man can be seen in the recording, which was widely shared on social media on Wednesday, being pushed out of the Iceland store in Ilford after an argument with members of the staff. He is repeatedly seen saying that a staff member had pushed him.
“You pushed me,” the elderly man is seen saying, before staff members demand that he should “get out” of the store. Many on social media responded with anger and sided with the older customer.
