A woman who threw a Chipotle bowl at an employee has been sentenced to working in a fast food job for two months.

Rosemary Hayne went viral back in September after a video of her arguing with Chipotle worker Emily Russell was seen by more or less everyone on the internet.

In multiple videos, Hayne was then seen throwing the food in the worker's face at close range.

For her behaviour, Hayne was initially ordered to pay a fine and spend 180 days behind bars, with 90 days of that being suspended.

That came after the mother of four pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge.

Hayne was given a choice by Judge Timothy Gilligan in the Parma, Ohio, municipal court last week of the 90-day sentence or a 30-day sentence on top of 60 days working in a fast food job.

"Do you want to walk in her shoes for two months and learn how people should treat people, or do you want to do your jail time?" Gilligan asked Hayne at the hearing.

"I'd like to walk in her shoes," the woman responded.

It came after the judge questioned Hayne's behavior and reaction over a bit of food.

"You didn't get your burrito bowl the way you like it, and this is how you respond?" Judge Gilligan asked.

"This is not 'Real Housewives of Parma.' This behaviour is not acceptable," he said.

Since the hearing Gilligan and her attorney told CNN on Wednesday that Hayne is yet to find a job.

The woman's attorney, Joseph O'Malley, told the outlet that his client had no criminal record before the viral incident and that she is truly sorry for her actions that day.

He told CNN: "Let's give her the opportunity to not let this one day define the rest of her life."

Judge Gilligan has since said Hayne will have to have her job approved by the court, and will have to work for 20 hours a week.

The judge told CNN: "Every time you watch the video, it makes you more and more upset. I was thinking, 'What else can I do rather than just have her sit in jail.'"

He was then asked by CNN if he would hire Hayne if he ran a fast food restaurant, with the judge admitting he doesn't think Hayne will struggle to get a job.

He said: "I don't see her as any greater risk than anyone who walks in off the street. I looked at it as someone who lost her cool."
