White Walmart customer beats another customer for calling employee N-word

When shopping at Walmart, a person comes across many different people and events. This time, a woman allegedly called an employee the N-word at a Walmart in Beech Grove, Indiana. A fellow customer, identified only as Amber, observed the confrontation and became irate with the racist woman. Soon, a physical fight occurred in the aisle with customers gathered around to watch the spectacle. The most shocking part of the fight was when Amber’s 6-year-old child joined the fight to deliver a series of blows  including stomping and kicking the head of the woman fighting his mom.

Amber recently  called the “Smiley Show” on local radio station WZPL and stated why the fight started. According to Amber, “She was sitting and yelling at an employee and she was telling her she was a n—– and she was going to get out of her chair and whoop her a–. In my defense for the employee, I asked [the woman] if she was miserable with her life. That’s when she rolled her supposedly crippled [inaudible] down there and jumped out of her chair.”

Amber actually encourages her 6-year old son to “punch her in the face.” In defense of her son’s violent behavior, she stated he was “a little crazy kid” who loves taking martial arts classes. “I don’t have to worry about him ever being bullied in high school,” she said.

Police were called to the store and viewed the video of the fight, and according to witnesses, began to laugh. The police did not file charges against anyone and both women and the child left the store.

A Walmart spokesperson issued the following statement: “This type of behavior inside one of our stores is completely unacceptable and we are notifying the individuals involved that they are no longer welcome on Wal-Mart property. Once we were aware of this situation, a member of our management immediately called the police and we are continuing to work with them on this matter.”

A video of the fight was uploaded to YouTube on Monday and has been viewed more than 1.5 million times.
