A video currently trending on social media shows an axe-wielding man identified as, Michael Palacios, going on a rampage inside a McDonald’s on Delancey Street on the Lower East Side.

The video shows a dispute between the suspect, Michael Palacios and three other men.

The three men smacked a smirking Palacios, who then is seen on video putting his right arm against his head before calmly walking over to his backpack, where he pulled out an axe and then threatened his combatants and frightened patrons.

“Bro, please! You better chill!,” one man told him. A crazed Palacios then approached one stunned woman with the axe and shouted, “Don’t be afraid of me, be afraid of him!”

No one was lovin’ the early Friday episode, captured on TikTok by user Shakes McGoo, who snarked, “NYC always good for some chaotic mayhem. He didn’t hurt anybody, but could have been ugly!”

“That’s why I keep my knife on me all the time,” spouted one of the onlookers who was recording the incident.

According to The Post, Palacios was charged with three counts of menacing, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, and one count of criminal mischief.
