Apple store tantrum goes viral

A WOMAN'S tantrum at an unfortunate Apple employee has become a viral Vine hit after an American TV actress captured the incident on her phone.

The brief video shows an unnamed woman who had walked into the Grove Apple store in Los Angeles and requested new parts for her iPad or iPhone.

She can then be seen shouting at a customer assistant, who had delivered the news that she would need to make an appointment.

"I was told by AppleCare that I could walk in and get the parts", she bellows, before hitting the buggy she is holding.

The brief exchange, taken by American actress Porscha Coleman, was uploaded to her Vine account and shared over 3,000 times.

Alongside the video Ms Coleman added the caption: "This lady is goin OFF in the Apple Store! LOL U don't have an appointment, lady!"
