Woman harasses Muslim Shopper



Shocking footage has emerged showing a white woman harassing a Muslim shopper her who let her queue in front of her at a supermarket.

The unnamed victim offered to let the woman go in front of her in the checkout line as she appeared to be in a hurry.

But in return, the woman allegedly began making derogatory comments about the way another Muslim customer, who was wearing a niqab, was dressed.

The harasser then asked the Muslim woman why she wasn’t fully covered, to which she replied that it was a choice.

At this point, the Muslim shopper says she started filming the exchange after the woman started talking about female genital mutilation.

In the mobile phone footage, recorded at a Trader Joe’s store in Reston, Virginia, the Muslim woman can be heard saying I shouldn’t have let you in front of me.

The white woman replies: I wish they didn’t let you in the country, to which the horrified Muslim woman tells her I was born here.

The blonde woman then proceeds to tell the Muslim woman that Obama’s not in office anymore. We don’t have a Muslim here anymore.

The Muslim woman retaliated: You look a little crazy, maybe you need to get some help… normal people don’t strike up conversations like that.

Writing on Facebook, he said: A friend of mine (who wishes to remain anonymous) just sent this to me.

I’ve confirmed that it’s real. This happened today at the Trader Joe’s in Reston, VA. This woman was in a hurry so my friend (who is a Muslim woman) offered to let her go in front of her in line.

That’s when she started talking bad about a different Muslim woman in the store (who was wearing niqab) and asking my friend why she didn’t cover as well.

My friend replied it was a choice and the woman didn’t believe her and started talking about FGM and telling her ‘I wish they didn’t let you in the country.

That’s when my friend started filming.

Enjoy. Let’s make this lady famous.

The clip was uploaded to Facebook yesterday and has since been viewed more than 1.7million times and received almost 23,000 shares.

It sparked fury among viewers, who condemned the harasser’s behaviour.

One person wrote: Whoa hold on there. So a Muslim gave her a place in line and she proceed[ed] to talk s— about Muslim[s]? That is just f—– up.

Another added: Lmao. How dare you speak negatively about Muslims after one of them was kind enough to let you go ahead of her in a grocery line?

Like, what kind of drugs are you on to have the audacity to so something so disgusting?? was it Obama that set you off?

No, psycho it was your complete disrespect to me as a Muslim woman. Wtf.

One Facebook user added: This in-your-face unfiltered racism isn’t scary; it’s actually amusing. No one is going to change this person’s views on minorities.

Those who shake your hand in public with a smile and then express their racism behind closed doors when you’re not around – those are the scary ones.
