On November 10, 2023, at roughly 8:22 PM (UTC-7), Daniel had a public meltdown inside a Westminster, Colorado Panera Bread. This incident was filmed both by bystanders and the managers he was on Discord with. The exact reason for the meltdown is unknown, though it appears to have stemmed from being recognized by fans. Just before the incident, Reddit user u/banquetbangerv6 posted to reddit "Mr president at Panera bread."
A member of the Discord Daniel was on a call with during the incident claimed that they weren't involved at all, and that this occurred naturally after a couple of fans had taken photos of Daniel.
The incident is similar to the Häagen-Dazs Incident, which happened about six months before.
Background[edit | edit source]
Before the incident, a group of trolls were allegedly following Daniel around between locations including Dave & Busters, Target , and a restaurant. Earlier in the night Daniel posted an official looking document from Dave & Busters stating that he was banned from all locations; it's likely this document was fabricated but Daniel took it at face value.  Daniel has been banned from other restaurants in the past for dining and dashing, including a Dave & Buster's. As of December 01, 2023, it is unclear if Daniel is truly banned from Dave & Buster's.
Bystander Video[edit | edit source]
The peak of the incident was mainly caught on camera by a bystander. In the video, Daniel is dealing with two Panera Bread employees who are trying to get him to leave. Daniel refuses to leave and yells at them "try me bitch" multiple times, even throwing a round table in their direction. Daniel then starts shouting about his fans leaking his location, and at this point, another employee calls the police. Daniel is warned that the employee will press charges for assault, to which Daniel responds by repeatedly shouting "I NEVER PUT HANDS ON YOU BITCH!". Daniel then starts punching himself multiple times and screaming. The employees just stand around recording before turning their backs on Daniel for a split second. Daniel then tries to sneak up on them with his arm raised but never follows through. The employee then raises his voice which causes Daniel to hit himself more and sit back down again, still shouting about never assaulting the employee. Daniel then uses a racial slur multiple times while also claiming to have a lawyer.
Employee #1: unintelligible
Daniel: No, I'm not! Those people are causing the situation! STOP FUCKING FILMING ME, BITCH! (woman recording the video laughs, Employee #1 also begins recording at this point)
Employee #1: You're cursing, you need to get out of my store right now. Don't put your hands on me.
Daniel: I'm not putting hands on you! I'm not putting hands on you! Try me! Try me! Try me! TRY ME! TRY ME, BITCH! TRY ME BITCH! TRY ME, BITCH! TRY ME, BITCH! I will fucking murder you!

Daniel: I can go right fucking ahead! I CAN GO RIGHT FUCKING AHEAD! Fans are leaking my location, bitch! Fans are leaking my location, bitch! BITCH! BITCH! Fans are leaking my location, I'm in fucking danger! (Employee #1 continues to try to speak to Daniel. Employee #2 stares in awe.)

Daniel hits himself in the head.
Daniel: I NEVER DID ANYTHING! FUCKING PRESS CHARGES ON ME NIGGER! NIGGER! I NEVER DID ANYTHING! (Employee #2, who is black, smiles in disbelief towards the camerawoman. She laughs at the same time.)

Daniel's POV and the Aftermath[edit | edit source]
Daniel was on a Discord call with a management team at the time of the incident, who captured some of the events from Daniels point of view. The video appears to start after the employee reordered their side. During the video Daniel turns the video around on himself revealing a bloody face from his own punches. Eventually the police arrive and talk to Daniel. Somehow, he was not arrested, but Daniel made a statement that the management at Panera Bread have banned him from the restaurant (knowing Daniel's tendency to make false claims a lot, the statement remains to be seen).
