A Value Village Toronto video is being shared after it was posted on YouTube outlining a harsh fight between a customer and a security guard.

In the video, the security guard can be seen calmly asking the customer to leave the store after he reportedly caught the man trying to steal items by placing them in a backpack.
"First of all, you're stealing stuff," the security guard can be heard saying in the short clip.
"I saw you stuff stuff into the bag... when you saw me you dropped the bag and freaked out. That's more than enough. Then you start cussing me."
Throughout the guard's explanation as to why the customer was being asked to leave the store, the man then starts to aggressively yell racial slurs.
While the confrontation continues for over a minute, the man finally leaves the store after exclaiming, "I'll be at Starbucks having a coffee."
Narcity has reached out to Value Village and the Toronto Police about the issue, but are still awaiting a response.
Despite the harsh outburst from the man, many users on Reddit are commenting on how calmy the Value Village employee handled the situation.
"I live right around the corner from this Value Village and am in there a lot. Lovely staff just doing their jobs," wrote one user.
"Major props to the guy. He actually got him to leave the store," wrote another.
However, this isn't the first time that racist outbursts have been recorded in the city of Toronto.
Back in November, a woman was caught yelling racial slurs at students from her car.
