[WATCH] Woman Responds To Video Of Her Trader Joe’s Tirade
A woman from North Hollywood is defending herself after video showed her going on a tirade inside a Trader Joe’s. Her tirade seemed to be caused by her being told to wear a mask. The woman is now speaking out and telling her side of the story to ABC7.
The woman claims that the fiery confrontation started when a customer started harassing her about not wearing a mask. She said, “Right away he started using obscenities at me, saying ‘f you,’ the c-word, ‘wear your f-ing mask’ all of this.” The woman, who does not wish to be identified, claims that she called the store and was given permission to shop without a mask. The problem is the store she called is located at Toluca Lake and she mistakenly went to the one in North Hollywood.
The altercation started, as soon as, she started shopping. she said, “I did what any normal human being, a woman, would do if she was being harassed by a man, not knowing if he’s a crazy man, so I started yelling in self-defense.” And she says she has no regrets about the rhetoric she used. She said, “Unlike whatever lies they are putting out there, I had no political agenda. I had nothing. They might use whatever else I said later in my anger, it doesn’t matter. What happened to me should not be happening to anyone else.”
The woman would not talk about the details of her medical condition. ABC attempted to get a comment from Trader Joe’s but they have not yet responded.
