A shopper who verbally harassed two Hispanic shoppers has been banned for life from a Kentucky mall — and she could also face potential criminal charges.

The encounter, which was recorded Tuesday and shared widely on social media and news outlets, shows a white woman in her 60s or 70s become angry after another shopper adds her items to a companion’s order at the cash register.

“Just go back wherever the f*ck you came from,” she said, and then asked the cashier to intervene. “Tell them to go back where they belong. You know, they come here to live and they act like they’re everybody else. Get in the back of the line like everybody else does.”

None of the JC Penney employees or other shoppers ask the woman to stop yelling racially charged insults at the two Hispanic women, but Louisville’s mayor and the county attorney have offered their help afterward.
