Influencer receives backlash after telling Home Depot worker: "Go back to your country"

I see I set myself up there. Given the context of…

…this would be a delicious scene in a Tarantino movie, but real life demands a more rational, less emotional, approach. Get the floor manager/security to usher the “customer” out, ban her from the premises. Write it up for the record, secure the security footage, publish it if it escalates.

My wife is dealing with a similar matter today. Her colleague gets help, the attacker gets to deal with police. Our context - a mall in Vancouver, scary escalation of unwanted attention, nobody wins.

@Melizmatic - yeah that is an artifact of a long edited post re the two posts preceding.

“Bigotry has no place in our society” is a fundamentally different position than “[brown folks/queer people/uppity women/etc.] have no place in our society.”

When will the Karens and Darrens finally realize their behavior never gets them anywhere and other people deeply despise them? Are they so oblivious they don’t realize how atrocious their behavior is? I’m ready for this particular fad to die a fast death.
