While visiting a Manhattan Verizon store in New York City, a woman who was asked to put on a mask in the store went on a racist rant after refusing to do so.
Police report that the Upper East side store offered the woman to put on a mask multiple times after she walked in around 5 p.m. on Thursday (Sept. 10), according to the New York Daily News.
The video shared on social media that has gone viral shows the woman becoming combative after being asked to leave the store.

“Get your f---ing s--t away from me, b---h, do not grab my hand,” the woman shouted, before grabbing a small trash bin and throwing it at the Black employee’s face.
After being forced out of the store the woman yells other offensive remarks to another Black Verizon employee.
“You don’t tell me what to do, you don’t grab my f---ing hand, you f---ing fat ugly n----r,” she said.
Verizon has asked the public to help identify the woman so that she can be banned for life from their stores. The company also said that they will “terminate her ability to do business with us.”
“The health and safety of our employees and customers is our number 1 priority. We will not tolerate behavior like this,” company spokesman David Weissmann said.
