Video captures moment “wido” gets his comeuppance


A HILARIOUS video shows the moment a self-confessed “wido” got his comeuppance at the hands of a furious middle-aged woman.


Teenager Kieran Taylor thought it would be funny to film himself throwing a chip at the head of a customer in McDonald’s in the early hours of the morning.


But the tables were dramatically turned when a friend of the woman marched over, grabbed Kieran by the throat and told him: “Look son, don’t be a f****** wido.”




Kieran, 17, apparently on the edge of tears, had to be rescued by a McDonald’s bouncer who chucked him out of the fast food joint in Cumbernauld, North Lanarkshire.


The “vine” – which Kieran, from Cumbernauld, uploaded himself – has been viewed more than 200,000 times in four days.



The video description reads: “Pinged a wee chip at someone who kept pure staring at me, then this happened! Look like am about to cry but am not.”


The stand-off occurred around 1:30am after Kieran and three friends decided to get out the house and stop by McDonald’s for some food.


Kieran was thrown out by the bouncer who saved him from the woman



Kieran said he and his pals had been loud and the women asked them to be quiet.


“One of them called me specky so I took a Snapchat of me throwing a chip at one of them,” said Kieran.


“Next thing I know one of them has me by the throat and someone else had me by the hair.





“The bouncer was quick to react and he chucked me out.”


Kieran has received a verbal roughing up from several people who commented on the clip.


One wrote: “Hope you s*** yourself. And she’s right – you were being a little wido.”


Another insisted: “He’s away to greet, doesn’t matter what the title says.”


Asked if he agreed with the general assessment of him as a wido, Kieran, who works with his dad as a door engineer, said: “Aye, I am a bit of a wido. But I don’t regret it. I thought it was really funny.


The website Urban Dictionary defines the word “wido” as “(Scottish slang) A person that has done something wide, (inapproriate, shocking, uncalled for). You spilt ma bucky ya pure wido!”



  1. If a man did this to a 17 year old girl you wouldn’t find it ‘hilarious’. The person writing this article is an arsehole.

  2. Dear Chris

    I think everyone would agree with your first sentence. It’s called “context”.

    Regarding your charming second second sentence, I’ve checked with Tony Connelly and he assures me he’s no such thing.

  3. I apologise for offending the sensibilities of hypocrites who justify violence against males when they wouldn’t justify if the roles were reversed. My second sentence may have been “charming” but I won’t lose too much sleep over where my moral compass points. Arsehole may be harsh but hypocritical buffoon seems much more accurate and fair.
