A GEORDIE earning minimum wage became a viral Facebook sensation by shaming bullies – allowing him to quit his job and make a living out of social media full time.

Robin Armstrong, 27, now boasts more than 800,000 followers – more than local North East hero Alan Shearer – thanks to his powerful posts about tackling bullies across Britain.

But it was not always like this.

Robin until recently worked a £7.50-an-hour job which he described as “mind-numbing” and said that he had “no hope”.

After breaking up with a partner four years ago he was desperate for a change so decided to begin making comedy videos.

However he is also wildly popular for using his platform to expose bullies.

His latest video shows a boozed up customer repeatedly attacking kebab shop workers.

Sharing the shocking footage, he wrote: “This happened in Flames and Fries takeaway, Buckinghamshire.

“People trying to earn a living while thug walks behind the counter drunk and started attacking them, threatening to burn there faces in the boiling water, punching them while saying.

“‘I’m a strong b****** do you want some’.

“WHAT AN EMBARRASSMENT! There terrified begging him to leave! And the man recording telling them to get off him so he can attack again? Why not help!!”

Speaking about his social media career, he told Chronicle Live earlier this year: “My mind is a mad old place, which isn’t usually very practical when trying to make money.

“I thought, am I just going to be that guy on Facebook? But I stuck at it and it’s paying off.”

Robin added: “It would make more a difference than what they already do as I put the fear of God into these bullies.”
