In a series of tweets, she wrote that the staff member became aggressive when she attempted to take a picture of him because she was unhappy with the service.

“So just got verbally assaulted by this gentleman ... at Chilli Lane Clicks Sunninghill. Reported him to his manager but zero. They watched him try intimidate me while I asked him to not come close to me aggressively,” she tweeted.

“I decided to take a picture of him as I was unhappy with his conduct. That’s when he lost it. He started becoming aggressive, opened the gate, pointed at me and started to assault me verbally. A female employee tried to intervene and calm him down but he ensued,” she added.
