A man has been fired from his job after a video surfaced on social media of him lashing out at an elderly woman who asked him to wear a mask during a heated confrontation at a Costco in Fort Myers, Florida.
In the video post on Twitter, the man screams an expletive-ridden tirade telling the woman and a man who appears to be defending her to back up and stop harassing him and his family after he was asked to put on a mask and stay 6 feet away.
“You’re harassing me?”
The man says as he clenches his fists, to which the other man replies, “I’m not harassing you, you’re coming close to me.”
The man continues to approach the pair, yelling,
“I feel threatened, I feel threatened! Back up! Threaten me again! Back the fuck up, put your fucking phone down.”
According to Twitter reports, one of the customers who was targeted said: “To give Costco the credit, they escorted him out and made me wait inside and monitored him until he left and then they sent someone with me to the car to make sure I’m okay.”
The man in the video was identified as a former employee at Florida-based Ted Todd Insurance by the insurance company’s CEO.
