Short Man Who Went Viral For Ranting About Being Rejected On Dating Sites Says He’s The Modern MLK

Chris Morgan told TMZ, “I have Black friends, but if someone upsets me, that word comes out of my mouth.”

The five-foot-tall Long Island, NY, man who went viral after ranting in a Bagel Boss about getting rejected on dating sites due to his height is back in the spotlight.

On July 9, a video posted to Facebook showed Chris Morgan yelling at the female employees at the bagel shop about his misfortunate dating life.

  • “Why is it OK for women to say, ‘Oh, you’re 5 feet,’ on dating sites, ‘You should be dead?’ That’s OK?” he can be heard screaming.

    When a woman in the shop told Morgan no one said those things, he said he was talking about women online.

    “Women in general have said it on dating sites. You think I’m making that shit up?” Morgan responded. “Everywhere I go I get that same fucking smirk, with the biting lip.”

    Once people on Twitter and Facebook viewed the video over a million times, it was discovered Morgan has a YouTube channel with several similar videos.

    Many of the videos contain incendiary and offensive titles, such as “Ghetto hoodrat cuts in front of me to use bathroom.”

    After going viral, Morgan has been capitalizing on his internet fame by appearing on New York radio shows and blogs. During an appearance on Hot 97, Morgan said that he’s “the modern Martin Luther King” of short people.

    Then in a 3-minute video posted to TMZ, Morgan said he isn’t a misogynist, but he doesn’t trust any women and he would not call himself a racist, but has been known to use “that word” during arguments with Black people.

    “I have Black friends, now if someone upsets me or steals from me that happens to be Black, that word comes out of my mouth, I’m not going to lie,” Morgan told TMZ.

  • Morgan also said he was not homophobic, saying “gays don’t bother me” but “just don’t touch me.”

    After the incident at Bagel Boss, Morgan also told the New York Post the viral video improved his dating life.

    “I got girls hitting on me I don’t even know,” he told the Post.

    He also said Bagel Boss invited him back to the store for a free bagel; however, Bagel Boss President Mike Ficco refuted that claim.

     “No one invited [Morgan] for a bagel. He’s not welcome,” Ficco told the New York Post.
