Welcome to Donald Trump‘s America!
Over the weekend, a South Carolina-based comedian named Jeremy McLellan took to Facebook to share a video of his friend being seemingly harassed at a Trader Joe’s in northern Virginia for being Muslim. Oh no.
Alongside the now viral video, the comedian wrote:
“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 (female genital mutilation) and telling her ‘I wish they didn’t let you in the country.’ That’s when my friend started filming.”
What a deplorable woman. We mean, not only is she spewing out some seriously crazy stuff about Barack Obama, but she’s apparently now claiming this situation was filmed “out of context.”
According to the unnamed woman, she was “ambushed” by the person filming the incident and was allegedly baited into speaking to the videographer as the Muslim woman verbally attacked the U.S. and claimed the country was full of “murderers and rapists.” Ummm, we’re not sure we’re buying that.
Also, even if the person filming DID make anti-American remarks, responding with Islamophobia is not the way to resolve this scenario. So, lady, you’re still in the wrong.
Reportedly, the woman featured in the video is now seeking legal representation as she and her family have received death threats. We have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ve heard about this drama…
