MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C., May 19 (UPI) -- A Burger King customer in South Carolina was so upset about a stale cinnamon roll that she allegedly threatened to "shoot down the place."

Three unidentified women entered a Burger King in Mount Pleasant and ordered food. One of them apparently became upset that her Cinnabon roll wasn't fresh and began yelling at employees.

"These three women were standing at the counter and by the time we had ordered our food and sat down, they still hadn't gotten their food and one of the women started complaining that her cinnamon bun wasn't fresh, or something like that," witness Haley Besson told WCBD.

According to the Post and Courier, there was only one roll left, which only further enraged the woman.

The manager was unable to calm the woman down and she reportedly placed her hand in her purse and said, "I'm going to shoot down the place."

However, the woman never pulled a gun out and left when employees threatened to call the police.

"I wasn't scared because I was like, the whole time, I was just like, 'This is over a cinnamon bun right now. They don't have their priorities together,'" Besson said.
