A shopper at a Michael’s store in Chicago totally lost her shit over having to pay for a $1 reusable bag and claimed she was discriminated against because she’s white. The unidentified woman launched a 45-minute rant directed toward African-American and Hispanic employees, according to Death And Taxes.
A customer in the store began recording the incident because she wanted to document the rant for store employees to “keep them from getting in trouble for no reason” because “the customer is always right,” according to Patch.
Yes, I voted for Trump, so there. You want to kick me out because of that? And look who won,” the woman said.
Others began videotaping the incident and so did the did the rage-y, shout-y white woman who then told an employee, “You want to discriminate against me and name call me?”
“What, you don’t want to be videoed? You don’t want to be on TV,” she says.
“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 African-American store manager can be heard calmly telling the woman to stop using profanity because there are children in the store.
“This woman [the cashier] screamed at me across the [deleted] store like an animal … you’re an animal … I told you as the manager to reprimand … Michael is going to hear about this first thing Friday morning,” the woman says.
The woman then directed her anger toward a 2-year-old child, accusing the toddler of stealing.
The woman who recorded the incident started a GoFundMe donation page for the store’s manager who took the brunt of the abuse dished out by the Trump-supporting woman. The manager has three children. The woman who captured the incident on video wanted to make the manager’s holidays special. As of now, $2,163 has been raised.
