(Scroll down for video) A video showing a 7-Eleven worker ripping off a shoplifter’s clothing during a struggle, went viral after being uploaded to the internet.

The worker at a 7-Eleven store in Brooklyn, New York, has now lost his job after he and other store employees were ripping off clothing from a suspected thief.

The video was recorded by a bystander Wednesday and then promptly posted online. The video start with two employees dragging the man back into the store and continue to fight him into surrender.

In the process, his shirt was torn off, his pants fell off and they continue the struggle in his underwear. One of the workers seems to bite the man on the shoulder. Another tries to pull him by his underwear.

Nevertheless, the man screams: "I have nothing, man!" While customers alternate between laughter and shouts to let the man go. "Somebody call the police. This is ridiculous!" A customer screams.

A 7-Eleven spokesperson said the chain store has seen the gruesome video. The company fired a worker and will re-train two others.

Police said the robbery suspect was already wanted in another case. He faces charges including robbery and assault.
