At the end of November, a woman in a Michaels craft store went on a rant when a cashier of color asked if she’d like to purchase a reusable shopping bag for $1 and the rest is history. She called black people “animals” and yelled apropos of nothing, “I voted for [Donald] Trump; so there!”
Another customer was filming and after the clip went viral, there were a lot of reactions around the country. The woman who filmed it, Jessie Grady, used GoFundMe to raise over $32,000 to give to the manager who was berated. Others did not react so kindly. One man has been charged with battery after entering the apartment of the ranter and pushing her and calling her names, according to Fox 32.
Ramiz Bajwa allegedly called her a “racist, bitch-ass whore.”
He was charged with simple battery, which is a misdemeanor.
