The man at the centre of a viral video, has now been fired.

The confrontation between a SEARS employee and a customer in Winnipeg, was caught on video, and it's now gone viral online.

The video was posted to Facebook on Saturday and has since been charged more than a thousand times.

It all started when the SEARS worker asked the employee to remove his child from the riding lawnmower, telling him 'this wasn't a play area'.

Shortly after, the employee allegedly said to the man, who is Asian, 'let me guess, you just came off the boat'.

The man reacted, shouting obscenities to the employee and demanding he be fired on the spot.

At first, the company said the employee had been suspended, but later on in the same day, officials had indicated he'd been terminated.
