Shoppers at a JCPenney in Louisville, Kentucky got an earful of “Christmas spirit” when a racist old woman went on a rant that was captured on video by a fellow shopper who then shared it on her Facebook page saying:
I had to get back on FB, to expose this racism in America/Louisville. If we ignore it, it will never go away….smh this is what America has come to, openly and proud to be a racist. Storyline: This Hispanic lady was purchasing items and the transaction was almost complete, then her friend brings up some shirts to be added to her purchase instead of getting in line. And this lady went off!!! Warning explicit language FYI…this wasn’t the entire scene, people tried to let her know it was out of order, but she wasn’t hearing that.
The woman, who has yet to be identified at the time of this publication, can be seen standing in line with what we can assume is a Christmas gift. She grew agitated with the customers in front of her when one woman picked up a couple of shirts and added them to her friend’s purchase.
That small perceived infraction was enough, during the time of “peace on earth and good will toward men,” to fuel this racist rant which includes lines like:
Go back to wherever the f*ck you come from lady. . . Hey, tell ’em to go back where they belong! You know they come here to live, then act like everybody else!
You’re a nobodies, as far as I’m concerned. . . probably on welfare. . . the taxpayers probably paid for all that stuff. It’s true, we probably paid for every bit of that stuff. You know that? Probably all of the food they get and everything else.
The mall posted a response to the video on their Facebook page saying they are currently working “with JCPenney to identify this woman and once identified, she will be permanently banned from Jefferson Mall.”

Update: JCPenney has issued a statement which says:
We are deeply disturbed by the incident that took place at our Jefferson Mall store, in which one customer made extremely inappropriate remarks to two other customers while standing in the checkout line. We regret that innocent bystanders – both other customers and a JCPenney associate – were subjected to such discriminatory remarks. We absolutely do not tolerate this behavior in our stores, and are working with our associates to ensure any future incidents of this nature will be addressed quickly and appropriately. In the meantime, JCPenney is asking for the community’s help in identifying the two women who were targeted for such remarks, as we would like to reimburse them for their entire purchase and offer a sincere apology for their experience.
Hopefully the two women who were the target of this woman’s hate will see the statement and contact the store.
