MANILA – Actor Phillip Salvador was recently involved in a shouting match with a foreigner at a mall on Monday after the latter shouted and called a waitress “stupid.”
The confrontation happened at Sbarro in SM Megamall at around 1 p.m.
According to Salvador, he was with his wife when he heard the Norwegian national called the staff of Sbarro “stupid” and a “bunch of idiots.” The foreigner was complaining about the food he ordered.
Salvador saw the waitress crying, thus he was not able to control himself from confronting the foreigner.
“Who the **** are you?” said Salvador, quoting the foreigner, during an interview. “I replied: I’m the ****** who’s going to beat your ass if you don’t apologize to them.”
The foreigner retorted that he will call the police, to which Salvador said, “Hurry up! Please tell them to be here in five minutes, and I will tell them to throw you out of this place!”
Salvador added, “You don’t insult the Filipinos. Let’s get out of this place, I’m going to fight you. You only know how to scream at girls!”
When asked about what he feels about a video circulating online that captured his argument with the foreigner, Salvador said that he does not mind.
While the staff made a mistake, Salvador believes that they do not deserve being shouted and insulted.
As of writing, Sbarro has not yet commented regarding the incident.
