Women tells Muslim Shopper: “I wish they didn’t let you in the country”


A recent video posted on Facebook by comedian Jeremy McLellan shows an unidentified woman confronting Jeremy’s friend. According to Jeremy, the woman was in a hurry so his friend let her go in front of her in line.

The woman then proceeded to make comments about another Muslim woman in the store and asked Jeremy’s friend why she didn’t cover up as well. The woman then says “I wish they didn’t let you in the country.” She also mentions that “Obama is not in office anymore” and “you don’t have a Muslim in there anymore”.

Jeremy has asked that his friend remain anonymous.

Islamophobia at Trader Joe's

A friend of mine (who wishes to remain anonymous) just sent this to me. I've confirmed that it's real. This happened today at the Trader Joe's in Reston, VA. This woman was in a hurry so my friend (who is a Muslim woman) offered to let her go in front of her in line. That's when she started talking bad about a different Muslim woman in the store (who was wearing niqab) and asking my friend why she didn't cover as well. My friend replied it was a choice and the woman didn't believe her and started talking about FGM and telling her "I wish they didn't let you in the country." That's when my friend started filming.

Enjoy. Let's make this lady famous.

(MEDIA: My friend has decided not to give any interviews. However, she says you may air the video as long as you give proper credit and ID her only as a friend of mine.)
