The angry Trump voter who went on a racist tirade against two Black employees at a Michaels store in Chicago has broken her silence. 

In an interview with Chicago 5, Jennifer Boyle addressed her actions that were captured by shopper Jessie Grady. In the original video, Boyle alleged the Black employee discriminated against her because she was white. However, Grady and other shoppers all refuted her claims and said that she was acting hostile and aggressive. 

After the video was posted online, another clip of Boyle going off on a gay employee of a Peet's Coffee & Tea made its way around the Internet. With the two clips together, many people began labeling Boyle as a racist and a homophobe. 

  1. In the exclusive interview, Boyle refused to back down from her actions

    Boyle told Chicago 5 that she felt that she was "defending" herself and she saw nothing wrong with her behavior in either clip. The only thing she admitted she should have done differently was that she should have just walked away. 

  2. When asked if she would like to apologize to the Michaels or Peets employees, Boyle answered with a flat out 'no'
  3. She finally went on to speak on how the GoFundMe money raised for the Michaels employee should have gone to different causes
  4. People have commented on the video and believe this did nothing to help her cause
