Watch: Woman Unleashed Disgusting Racist Tirade on Hispanic Women at Mall

"Go back to wherever the f**k you came from."

Published December 21, 2016

  1. On Tuesday, video footage from Jefferson Mall in Kentucky showing a woman spewing racist hate at two women at a JCPenney was posted online WDRB 41 Louisville News

    The woman reportedly accused the two women of jumping the line. Although the store clerk tried to calm the woman down, she continued on her racist rant.

    "Go back to wherever the f**k you come from lady," the woman in the video says. "Just because you come from another country, that don't make you nobody. You're nobody, as far as I'm concerned. Probably on welfare. The taxpayers probably paid for all that stuff." 

  2. After the video went viral, Jefferson Mall released an official apology on their Facebook page
  3. Many gave their input under the mall's post
  4. Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer also issued the following statement:

    "I am sad and disappointed to see conduct like this, when one person so dehumanizes another human being. This is not who we are, and on behalf of our community, I apologize to the two women who were treated in such a horrible way. I hope this video prompts many discussions among families as they gather for the holidays this week – discussions about basic human values, dignity and respect. As a country of immigrants, we must understand that we only move forward through peace, acceptance and embracing those who are different from us. These are basic American values protected in our Constitution, values embraced in this welcoming, compassionate community."
