‘Hero’ bartender praised after helping two women with subtle move when they were being harassed
A CARING bartender is going viral after finding a simple way to help two female customers who were feeling uncomfortable.
Max Gutierrez is being praised for coming to the aid of the women being harassed by a man in a Florida bar.
Trinity and her friend were trying to enjoy some drinks out when they say a man began to start “harassing” the two of them.
In a post shared on Twitter, she describes how Max played an effortlessly subtle move to help them out. “The bartender passed this note to me acting like it was my receipt!”
On the note was written: “If this guy if bothering your ponytail on your left shoulder, and I will have him removed, He’s giving ME the CREEPS.”
Trinity continued: “Legit the type of bartender everyone needs.”
“He ended up having to literally yell at the guy he said, ‘you need to get tf away from these girls who clearly are not interested’ and the dude said ‘that was a little aggressive’, and he said ‘well you’re aggressively hitting on them and you need to leave”.
Under the post which has over 209k likes, online users quickly rushed to say how impressed they were with Max’s gentlemanly behaviour and fast-thinking.
“Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear Hawaiian shirts,” said one.
Another wrote: “Thank you to this bartender who had the strength to offer help.”
“Super good vibes from him,” offered a third.
Max managed to see the story posted on Reddit and decided to share more on his side of the story.
“I honestly don’t like yelling at customers or embarrassing people, but I find it one of the best ways to handle creeps.”
“I just don’t need my guests feeling uncomfortable.”
In a happy turn of events and much to the delight of the followers of the story, Trinity and Max reunited post the incident.
The newfound friends inspired lots of kind words online.
One said: “You’re a good man, Max!”
Another wrote: “Aw this is the photo I was wanting to see.”
The helpful bartender then provided an update for everyone, which said: “the guy I kicked out on Sunday night came back to the bar JUST NOW for a beer, told him I wouldn’t serve him.”
Trinity replied: “Yaaas ily Max lol I’ll be back sooon.”
