Broland says that when Martinez first called the restaurant she made a claim that her soup is so hot that the plastic lid has melted. Broland says that she continued to abuse her on phone and so she had no option but to put the phone down. However, only a few minutes later, Martinez turned up at the restaurant.

Talking to the Daily Mail, she said: "Every time I would mention a refund or a free replacement meal, she would just cut me off and kept saying 'This is f***ing ridiculous' or 'Look at this s***'.

"She did not seem to want anything, just to berate me."

Broland said she 'felt like she'd been pepper sprayed' when she was hit by the 'very spicy' soup, but fortunately she wasn't seriously injured.

Taking to her TikTok, Broland shared an update and responded to the comments of people where they asked if people helped her out after the incident or not. Broland added that after the incident there were many people who dashed after Martinez to catch her and when she went to the washroom, she was embarrassed and crying bitterly but this nice lady also helped her clean up.
