Outrage ensued on social media after a Facebook user posted a video that shows a woman berating another shopper for being Muslim.
Facebook user Jeremy McLellan Comedy said it all happened at a Trader Joe’s in Reston, Virginia, on Saturday.
“I wish they didn’t let you in the country,” the woman said.
The other shopper, who McLellan said is Muslim, said, “Excuse me?” and told the woman she was born in the United States.
The woman replied, “Oh, were you?”
She then said, “Obama’s not in office anymore,” and made other comments about the former president.
It apparently started when McLellan’s friend let the woman in front of her because she was in a hurry. The woman started talking badly about a different Muslim woman in the store, McLellan said, questioning why his friend didn’t cover as well.
That’s when his friend, who wished to remain anonymous, started recording.
“You look a little crazy, maybe you need to get some help,” McLellan’s friend eventually said to the woman.
“Oh, I’m fine,” she replied.
WUSA9 reached out to the Trader Joe’s in Reston for confirmation that this incident happened in that store but has not yet received a response.
The Council on American-Islam Relations was made aware of the video and is reviewing it as well.
At this time, WUSA9 has not been able to confirm this video with anyone other than the person who posted it to Facebook. This is a developing story and will be updated as information becomes available.
