What does "lit him up" mean?

I was watching a video on YouTube about a cashier who was rude to a customer ..One person who commented on the video said "I would've lit him up and then let my husband do the second round"

What does that mean ?

Thank you

    light him up means to threaten him with a weapon- gun, fire, tazer

    I had to look this up as I do not speak slang.

    It has a number of different meanings, but in this context, I would say it means "been verbally abusive to him"

      Thank you. So it has nothing to do with physical violence ?
