Trump Supporter Yells At Black Employees In Michael’s
The boost in confidence of Trump supporters has resulted in a string of altercations across the country, often involving them targeting people of color. Chicago appears to be no exception as a video recently surfaced showing a woman yelling at black employees in an arts and crafts store, according to RawStory.
“I voted for Trump — so there,” the woman who felt she was being discriminated against can be heard shouting on video. “You want to kick me out for that? And look who won.”
Apparently, the altercation took place in a Michaels store in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood and lasted for more than 30 minutes. During that time, multiple shoppers recorded the incident, resulting in the woman getting more visibly upset and lashing out.
“I don’t know what you think you’re videoing, lady,” the woman says. “I was just discriminated against by two black women, and you being a white woman, you’re literally thinking that that’s okay? You standing there with your baby thinking that’s okay.”
The angry customer can be seen calling black employees, including a manager, “animals” after they suggested she pay for a larger bag to fit her items. After 45 minutes, police arrived at the scene and the woman left the store.
Twitter’s best sleuths quickly got to work once the video went viral and found out the woman’s identity and even a LinkedIn profile that listed her current place of work, according to DNAInfo. After getting numerous demands to terminate her, the Sinai Health System released the following statement.
Apparently, the same woman has a reputation for having similar outbursts at other establishments in the area, including a June incident when she mocked a store manager at a coffee shop in Boystown, adding that she had “a $90,000 a year job.”
Clearly, money doesn’t buy happiness.
Nearly $30,000 has been raised for the manager who was targeted by the women’s insults in a GoFundMe campaign.
