Who Is Sarah Russi? New Details On Cam Model Being Harrased By Angry Bagel Guy Chris Morgan

Some people turn viral fame into an opportunity to live their best life, like Emily Zamourka who was found singing opera in the L.A. subway. She was homeless when her video went viral but now Good Samaritans have raised money to help her find a place to live and she just signed a recording contract. 

Some people start out with viral fame for weird reasons and then get weirder. Chris "Angry Bagel Guy" Morgan blew up online when he went off on a rant in a bagel shop. Morgan started yelling about the ways women on dating apps treat him and threatening other people in the shop until one customer finally tackled him. Since the video of the incident went viral, he's tried to leverage it into additional success by signing up to do a celebrity boxing match, appearing on podcasts and doing interviews. Now he has apparently decided to try and find love with web-cam star Sarah Russi.

Only Russi isn't interested in Morgan and really wishes he would just leave her alone. 

Who is Sarah Russi and why is the Angry Bagel Guy harassing her? Read on for all the details. 

1. Angry Bagel Guy is born

One morning in July, Morgan stopped by Bagel Boss for a whole wheat bagel with one egg white and Swiss cheese. As he was waiting for his order, a young woman working behind the counter looked up at him and smiled. Rather than seeing this for the good customer service it was, Morgan perceived it as a threat to his manhood and started ranting about the ways in which women mistreat him. A manager told the New York Post that he was upset about his height and the experience on dating apps. “He just went totally nuts. He said ‘why are you smiling at me?'” she said. “He started saying it’s because I’m short and nobody wants me.”

Morgan started pacing around and yelling "Why is it OK for women to say, ‘Oh you’re 5 feet’ on dating sites — you should be dead. That’s OK?” Eventually, a man in a blue shirt asked Morgan to calm down. Morgan, who came up to the other man's collarbone, suggested they step outside before starting to yell at yet more customers. Finally, the man in the blue shirt tackled him and cops eventually came. No charges were filed but the staff at Bagel Boss noted that he did not pay for his order.

In a later interview, Morgan said that the woman behind the counter was somehow mocking him. "It’s about belittlement, what she was doing! Giggling, all this crap!” he told the Post.

2. A history of public meltdowns

The bagel shop meltdown turns out not to be Morgan's only video, just the only video that went viral. TMZ managed to find his YouTube channel which contains a collection of videos of himself yelling at other people in public. In one, he's in a convenience store trying to get cops to file harassment charges against a store employee who asked him his height. In another, he screams at and appears to hit a woman in an altercation over whose turn it is to use a restroom. 

If you're wondering why he spends so much time out buying food and using public restrooms, it's because he lives in a van down by the river. OK, it's really a van in a parking lot. He apparently lost his apartment due to some financial troubles so he lives in a minivan that he parks behind a deli. Despite not having an apartment, he still claims that women use him for his money. He told the New York Post that women he meets all treat him poorly and he's tired of it. “Being used by women, going on dates," he ranted, "They lie, say they like me and then use me for my money!”

People who know him have a different theory on why women reject him. Dawn, a homeless woman who also hangs around the parking lot where he parks his van, said of Morgan: “He has a Napoleon complex real bad. He thinks he’s on top of the world.”

3. Celebrity fight against Screech

After the video of his tirade went viral, Morgan decided to try and parlay his fame into bigger things. In addition to doing appearances on podcasts and talking to the media, he agreed to take part in a celebrity fight. Though he has no known history of boxing, TMZ reports that he signed on to fight against former Yankee Lenny Dykstra. Both men started training for the event but Dykstra had to pull out at the last minute to focus on suing LA County over his treatment when he was arrested in 2012. 

But not to worry. Morgan managed to find another opponent for a celebrity showdown. Dustin Diamon, better known as Screech from Saved By The Bell stepped in to take Dykstra's place. Diamond has one successful fight to his record: in 2002, he beat Ron Pallilo, who played Horshack on Welcome Back Kotter in the 1970s. 

Maybe realizing that Screech beat Horschack frightened Morgan off because he canceled the fight and now organizers are suing him for breach of contract

4. Harassing Sarah Russi

Having dropped his pursuit of glory in the boxing ring, Morgan seems to have returned to his goal of finding love. He met Sarah Russi, a model and webcam star when they recorded a podcast together recently. They then met up again to film a YouTube segment. Sarah thought it was a professional meeting but Morgan was going for romance. "When I got there Chris was treating it like it was a real date," she told Page Six. "I told him I have a boyfriend, but Chris kept saying ‘You could do so much better.’ He kept telling me how famous he was and asked me ‘How does it feel finally meeting me in person?'”

5. Sarah and Mason

Sarah, who is a popular webcam model, was featured on the show Extreme Love with her boyfriend, former child actor Mason Reese. Reese, who is 54 now, was a mainstay of commercials and variety shows in the 1970s. Sarah, who is in her 20s, connected with him on Facebook, because she was interested in his past work and because she is naturally attracted to older men. They have been together for the better part of a year and they both say the relationship is genuine. She has been a sugar baby in the past and this isn't that, The Heavy reports. Sarah says she “can go out and date 20 guys who will give an allowance,” but would rather be with Mason.

6. He's not exactly sexy

Morgan didn't drop his pursuits of Russi even after she made it clear that she wasn't interested. He kept reaching out to her and when she didn't get back to him, he decided to up the ante by showing her the goods, so to speak. He sent her a selfie where he was wearing nothing but a pair of black briefs. Russi was unimpressed. “Chris then kept texting me, but I didn’t respond. Then on Tuesday, he sent me this picture with his shirt off. I was like ‘What the hell? Does he really think I’ll be turned on and text him back? He doesn’t exactly look that sexy.”

Sarah shared Morgan's sexy selfie. 

There's no word on what Angry Bagel Guy plans to do next but it's safe to say he won't be doing it with Sarah Russi.
