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.
The woman, a 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 as she continues lobbing food items.
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.
Witness Omar Guillen told WFAA: ‘I had noticed the woman during my time at the store. She was wearing her mask but by the time she was in line she had taken it off.’
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 to 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.
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.
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.
Supermodel 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.
