A Chicago shopper was filmed having a meltdown inside of a Michaels craft store, during which she accused the staff of discriminating against her for being white and for voting for Donald Trump. “And I voted for Trump, so there. You want to kick me out because of that? And look who won,” the unidentified woman is heard yelling at employees.
According to the 10-minute video uploaded to YouTube, the woman believed that a black employee had tried to “force” her to purchase a $1 reusable bag. Employees can be heard telling her that they offered her the bag because they were out of disposable ones that met the size of her larger items.
Jessie Grady, who filmed Wednesday evening’s profanity-laced tirade on her phone, told the Chicago Patch that she broke out her camera so that it wasn’t just the angry customer’s word against the employees’.
Applause broke out when she suggested that she was leaving. But instead of continuing to walk way, the shopper stopped and appeared to call the police.
