A woman shopping at a Dallas grocery store exploded in rage and proceeded to throw items from her cart while yelling expletives after being asked to wear a face mask.
The profanity-laced meltdown took place at the Fiesta supermarket on West Illinois Avenue on Saturday and was captured on video, which has since gone viral on social media.
The cell phone recording begins with the irate customer’s temper tantrum already in progress.
Food fight: A woman shopping at a Fiesta supermarket in Dallas on Saturday had a meltdown after being asked to put on a face mask. She has not been identified so far
A witness who recorded the outburst on video said that the woman did have a mask, but she took it off before approaching a cash register
Like other businesses in Dallas County, Fiesta requires shoppers and employees to wear face coverings to stop the spread of COVID-19
The woman, a petite bespectacled blonde wearing a black top and skinny jeans, is seen hurling containers of raw chicken, pork chops, other meat products and groceries while unleashing profanities.
‘I don’t give a f*** about Dallas and dumba** motherf***ing rules,’ the woman rants.
With the words, ‘I don’t give a f***, I got a f***ing mask,’ the angry shopper storms off, waving her face covering in her hand.
‘Now clean that s*** up,’ she yells out as she exits the store, referring to the mess she had left on the floor.
‘I had noticed the woman during my time at the store,’ witness Omar Guillen told WFAA. ‘She was wearing her mask but by the time she was in line she had taken it off.’
Video from the store shows the woman taking out trays of chicken and meat from her cart and tossing them on the floor. All the while, she is heard yelling expletives
The woman is seen holding her white face mask in her right hand during the tantrum
Using some very colorful language, the irate shopper let it be known that she does not care about rules
A manager approached the woman and asked her to put the mask back on, citing county requirements and the supermarket chain’s own rules, but she refused.
The manager warned her that she would not be served, which apparently caused her explode in rage.
Dallas County imposed a mandate on June 21 requiring everyone to wear a face covering in public places. Businesses can be fined up to $500 for each violation of the order.
She stormed off after her shameful display, leaving staff to pick up her mess
Police were called to the scene but arrived long after the woman had left
Chrissy Tiegen was not impressed with the childish outburst, as seen from her tweet
Police were called to the Fiesta supermarket on Saturday in response to the woman’s outburst, but by the time officers arrived the rule breaker had left.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the video documenting the maskless woman’s food-throwing antics has been viewed more than 23.4million times.
Many commenters labeled the Dallas woman a ‘Karen,’ which is a pejorative slang term for a entitled white woman perceived to be unreasonably demanding or petulant.
Chrissy Tiegen weighed in on the video on Twitter, writing: ‘I’m so tired of people, man. Why I started limiting my social media time. Went from 20 hours a day to 20 mins. All I can take.
