Woman fired based on questionable racial profiling complaint

| March 5, 2021

Tik Tok user “@blonde_goddess” does a video explaining her situation. Then she asks the viewers if it was wrongful termination. (Tic Tok/@blonde_goddess)

A woman decided to move a rack at her employment. Utilizing Composite Risk Management (CRM), she looked to make sure that she was not going to hit anybody. She saw someone, who asked her if she needed help. When she responded that she didn’t need help, the individual informed her that she was going to file a corporate complaint against her.

Here’s a transcript of the transaction:

So I normally don’t do this on Tic Tok but today I am livid. So I want your opinion to see if this kind of thing is justified.

So I work at a retail store and I’ve worked there now for like a year and a half. Well, I’m moving these racks and I didn’t want to hit anyone. So I kind of looked to each side to see if anyone’s on the other side to see if I can move it.

Well, I look this way and I end up seeing someone. So I stop and I don’t move it. Well, she instantly looks at me and says, “Can I help you with something?” And I’m like, “Oh, no, I’m sorry, I was just going to move the rack and I want to make sure I didn’t hit anyone.”

Well, then, she says, “I want to put a corporate complaint against you for racial profiling,” because apparently I looked at her the wrong way and was assuming she didn’t have money.

I would never just assume someone doesn’t have money by what they look like. That is stupid. Well, I had to give a whole statement about the thing and overall they called me up today and fired me due to me looking at someone and being racist.

So, do you think that’s justified or do you think that’s wrongful termination? Because I’m pissed.

So, what you guys think? Wrongful termination?

    She’s white. And pretty. Case closed.

    • KoB says:

      ^WORD^ Her white privilege made her pretty…and white…and culpable. And oh, btw, don’t forget that WP also gave her some get up and go to get up and work.

      • Forest Bondurant says:

        The fact she was even NEAR another person of color makes her a racist, because we all know that if you’re white and within close proximity suggests you’re encroaching in their space and exhibiting white priviledge.

        (The fact she hadn’t been fired sooner is surprising.)

        //sarc//
        ^^^^

        In all seriousness, I’d like to know what retail company she worked for so they could be mercilessly harangued over this on social media, and call for boycotting them, and so on.

  2. Andy says:

    Shit like this is what will cause the fuse to get shorter and shorter. All I can say is that gas is relatively cheap right now.

    • KoB says:

      ^THIS^ +1000 Keep kickin’ that dog, when he gets enough of yo’ sh^t, he will bite heel out of your azz.

      I don’t think these sumbeaches realize the Mad Dog is a’fixin’ to slip of the collar and be unchained, held back from wreakin’ his own havoc and spreading a little of his discontent.

  3. Graybeard says:

    My recommendation – sue early and often and largely.

    File complaints and file suits based on those complaints.

    Punch back 3 times as hard, and don’t quit punching until they quit being adz holes.

    The legal equivalent of an educational beat-down needs to happen. And keep happening.

    • SgtBob says:

      Everything you said and then some. Make noise. Lots of noise.

    • 26Limabeans says:

      I have found that going after a persons home owner insurance policy
      results in immediate settlement of all issues. Then they get cancelled.
      Unfortunately the subject needs to have a policy let alone a home.
      If you own a home you have much to lose by being a jerk.

  4. President Elect Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Domestic Violent Extremist says:

    Sue her ex-company for wrongful termination.
    Then after she gets her money, walk off to another company.
    And sue the woman for slander, libel, and filing a false report.

    The Libtards have blazed the trail & set the example with (fill in the blank FEELZ lawsuits). She’s just following the Libtard Path.

    • ChipNASA says:

      This shiat here.

    • MI Ranger says:

      Definitely agree. Sue the person she “looked at” for slander. Sue the Company for wrongful termination. We have way too many lawyers in this country, and they need work!

  5. USMC Steve says:

    Don’t even stop then. Locate, close with, and destroy. That is the only thing libtards will understand.

    Crush them mercilessly.

  6. Ex-PH2 says:

    Gee, I am so glad I left the work world behind a while back.

  7. AW1 Rod says:

    Her former employers are apparently as stupid as the vapid cow who filed the bullshit complaint.

    Yeah, a lawsuit is probably in order.

    • Hack Stone says:

      Well, in their defense, if they decided in favor of the now former employee, the “offended: party would have launched a scorched earth social media attack against them, and the immediate knee jerk reaction would result in Social Justice Warriors and their sympathizers attacking the company and owners, and the “Reverend” Al Sharpton would be leading mostly peaceful protests in front of the stores until the store owners acknowledge that all white people are inherently evil, and the only way to resolve is by giving massive sums of money to Sharpton’s latest scam, I mean charity.

  8. OWB says:

    Was the complainant REALLY mad because she had positioned herself to be hit by the moving rack, which the (former) employee thwarted with her diligence? That, or something equally ridiculous?

    Anybody can file a lawsuit for just about anything. Doesn’t mean the case has merit. Complaints work similarly. Wasn’t there – don’t know what happened, but this sure sounds nuts. Could well be more to it than we have heard so far.

    Too many folks out there looking for something to grumble about. What a way to live.

  9. My, My, My says:

    I’m not a knee jerk reaction type of person. On the surface seems kinda screwed up.

    However, there has got to be more to the story than just a TicTok video claim. Otherwise, Meh.

    I wonder how much the other lady weighed 🙂

  10. 5JC says:

    Not much to go on here. I’d be interested in reading more.

  11. Jason says:

    I got fired once for ‘inappropriate communication’ because I was talking about 2 people at the end of our table when a coworker asked me who the director was. I told him it was the Black gentleman on the left. I was told that was racist and fired that week.

  12. Jason says:

    And before anyones feathers are ruffled, he was from Trinidad so he was not AA.

  13. Carlton says:

    Why would a person’s first course of action be to create a Tik Tok video? I wonder how true this person’s account is.

  14. MI Ranger says:

    I thought for sure this was going to be a Union complain, that the other individual was upset because she did not use her to assist in the work and therefore denied her the ability to help!
    Or maybe it was a Union complaint that this individual was not “qualified” to move Racks and due to her lack of understanding of the union initiated safety code, she did not have four people to do the job (one to supervise, two to ensure no one is able to block the path, and one to do the work), notify the store employees at least two weeks in advance to ensure no one wanted to suggest a different orientation for the rack, and to properly place the safety cones that prevent customers from accidently stepping in to your work space (may need additional workers to place these). Oh, and don’t forget about the environmental impact study!

    Heaven forbid an employee just move a rack (to help customers access merchandise)!

    100% guilty/ BLM gonna burn it all down.

  16. Charles says:

    Is there any evidence that this “Tik Tok” Post is from:

    1 – A Real Person.
    2 – Who work(ed) at a retail store.
    3 – Was terminated from her job.
    4 – Because she looked at a “person of color”* with an incorrect facial expression.

    As opposed to a “troll bait” posting what could anger/incite a reader, some of whom would call for shutting down such a store / encourage her to file suit / take the position of the *POC,…,

    while said troll looks at the responses and says … truthfully …

    “You are a bunch of dumb mother-fuckers to get so riled up over bullshit on the world wide interweb.”

    *POC. Reminds me of the Redd Foxx line in “Sandford and Son.” At junk yard is burglarized, the officer asked Foxx “Did you see the perpetrators?” and Foxx says “Yes.” Then the officer asks Foxx “Were they colored?” And Foxx replies: “Yeah, they was colored. They was colored white!”

    I will freely declare to anyone that I am a “Person of Color.” My color happens to be white.

    • Ret_25X says:

      Yeah, it’s tik tok, so who knows.

      That said, this does happen everyday all over the USA. If you don’t know that, you are part of the problem.

    Evil white supremacists get what they deserve, eh comrade!

  18. Hondo says:

    Not sure if the story is based on fact or not, and I’m certain this isn’t the whole story.

    But even if the situation is exactly as claimed, while the alleged firing would in that case appear to be obviously unfair it’s IMO almost certainly legal. If the individual featured here works in an “at will” employment state and isn’t included in some type of employment contract (individual or collectively-bargained), I’m pretty sure she’s SOL regarding any wrongful termination suit. Her conduct doesn’t seem to fall into any of the legal exception categories identified in the linked articles below that would make it wrongful termination. And per the second linked article, the only state in the US that isn’t an “at will” state is Montana.
