A viral video with over 5 million views on Twitter shows a couple going off on Planet Smoothie employees who refused to serve them one minute before closing.

The TikTok video shows the couple using profanity and threatening to call the corporate office because the workers refused to serve them ice cream one minute before the store closed.

The couple claim they waited in line for 30 minutes before entering the store at 8:29 p.m. But the workers insist they entered at 8:30 - closing time.

"We want to go home," one employee told the irate couple.

As the argument went back and forth, the male threatened a teenage employee. "I want you [outside]," he tells the kid.

Twitter users, who normally side with people who cry racism and discrimination, sided with the employees.

"As customers.. don't walk into a place 1 minute before closing .. just dont," one user tweeted.

Another Twitter user wrote: "58 year old man throwing a hissy fit over sprinkles & coconut shavings lord have mercy."

And a third tweeted: "Ready to beat up a minor over ice cream at 8:29 pm........"

Question: Who's in the wrong here: the Black Karens or the workers?

Cassandra Freeman, best known for playing Aunt Viv on TV drama "Bel-Air," criticized Walmart for its "celebration edition" Juneteenth ice cream. The actress said the frozen treat is just plain wrong.

Juneteenth is a federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Africans in America. The holiday was popularized by American singer Beyonce in a music video. It is observed every June 19.

TMZ bumped into Cassandra on Monday at LAX and asked her about Walmart's "Celebration Edition Juneteenth Ice Cream" which has been trending all day on Black Twitter.

Walmart is being dragged on Black Twitter for its newest flavor, red velvet and cheesecake ice cream along with this message on the package: "Share and celebrate African-American culture, emancipation and enduring hope."

Cassandra said Ben and Jerry's would never make the same mistake. "Ben and Jerry's smart. They got heart," she said.

She also blasts the retail giant for its corporate greed and shames whoever greenlit the product for not reading their history books.

"What's next? September 11 ice cream? You know, some 9-11 ice cream," she said.

Despite the mocking tweets, Twitter says the Taliban can stay on the platform as long as they don't incite violence.

In a statement to Mediaite.com, Twitter said its "top priority is keeping people safe, and we remain vigilant."

One Taliban account has more than 310,000 followers.

Conservative lawmakers noted that the Taliban has Twitter accounts but Donald Trump is still banned.

"Why on God's green Earth does the Taliban spokesman have an active Twitter account but not the former President of the United States?," Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) tweeted Sunday.

Kraft premiered a new ice cream flavor just in time for National Macaroni & Cheese Day (July 14). The brand teamed up with Brooklyn-based Van Leeuwen Ice Cream to develop the new creamy macaroni & cheese ice cream flavor.

"We know that there is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than ice cream," said Kraft in a press release.

"That is why we wanted to combine two of the most iconic comfort foods to create an ice cream with the unforgettable flavor of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese we all grew up with."

The limited-edition ice cream is available online on Van Leeuwen's website and in the brand's stores across the country while supplies last starting July 14 at 11 a.m.

The new sweet confection isn't cheap. A pint costs $12, but New Yorkers can taste the new flavor for free between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. at an ice cream truck in Union Square.

By 12 noon Twitter users complained that the website kept crashing.

It sounds like the new macaroni & cheese flavor is a success.
