Diner owner Darla Neugebauer is being both cheered and jeered online for reprimanding a crying child in her restaurant.

If you haven't been on social media in the last few hours, here's the skinny: Darla Neugebauer, Maine diner owner, screamed at (and went on a subsequent viral Facebook rant about) a child who had been crying nonstop inside the restaurant she runs.

Marcy's Diner under fire after owner yelled at a screaming child. Hear from the diner's owner @ 5 p.m.

Tara Carson, the mother of the crying child, took to Marcy's Diner's Facebook page to share her displeasure, and Neugebauer responded in kind.

Here is the original post by the mom and the response in the Marcy's diner controversy:
