This is the moment a furious female customer pins a cheeky boy to a supermarket checkout after he asked her if she was a man or a woman.
The startling incident occurred in a supermarket in the Karakocan district in Turkey’s Elazig and was recorded by the shop’s CCTV cameras.
Local media report the boy, who appears to be around six or seven years old, asked the woman, who has not been named in reports, if she was a man or a woman.

In the video, the youngster can be seen speaking to the woman as she pays at the till.
The woman, sporting a short haircut, then marches over to the boy and grabs him the collar.
She then lifts him and pins him to the conveyor belt, standing over him before another woman, believed to be the youngster’s mother, walks over and takes him away.
The aggressor then receives her change and walks out of the supermarket.
It is unclear if a criminal complaint has been filed about the incident.
The boy has not been identified in reports.
Neitzen ‘Kerim’ commented: “Everybody should teach their children to behave properly. 6 years is quite old. The boy is obviously not behaving well. Such a shame.”
Another user wrote: “Regardless of the behaviour of the boy which is not correct, the woman shouldn’t have beaten him.”
While ‘Yazik’ wrote: “The parents who haven’t taught their boy to behave and all the other parents who remain silent in such cases are to be blamed.”
