Customer will not let Black employee bag her groceries at Publix
The client at that point supposedly attempted to run the representative over with her vehicle.
Police were called to a Virginia Publix after a client would not permit a Black employee to bag her groceries, as indicated by NBC 12. The lady likewise supposedly attempted to run that same representative over with her vehicle as she was leaving the store.
Employees said the client told staff that she did not need the worker to bag her food supplies since she was African American. The supervisor advised the Publix worker to leave and allow the customer to bag her own goods.
“I almost cried. I’m fighting back tears now,” another employee, who asked to remain unidentified, told the outlet. “He proceeded to tell the manager. She said just to walk away, and she bagged her own groceries.”
The adolescent at that point went outside to gather a portion of the shopping baskets. That is the point at which the same client supposedly attempted to run the young man over with her vehicle. Authorities state they are not sure if she’s a terrible driver or if it was purposeful.
“This is a 15-year-old boy and you tried to end his life. You tried to run him over with your car when he did nothing to you and I just don’t see how people can be so hateful to someone that they don’t know,” the employee said.
The worker added, “I hope and pray that Henrico’s finest finds her…It’s outrageous that we have to live in this world and tolerate this…He’s just trying to do his job.”
Publix has discharged an announcement to the outlet saying that they have discharged the video film to the police for their examination.
“The safety and well-being of our associates is our priority. We do not condone racism of any form in our stores,” the statement read. “We are cooperating with local law enforcement in their investigation and have provided them with surveillance video.”
