A St. Louis woman has lost her job after her attempt to block a black man from entering his apartment building went public in a viral video.
D’Arreion Nuriyah Toles was blocked from entering his St. Louis, Missouri, apartment by a white woman, identified as Hilary Thornton who repeatedly questioned if he lived there. He captured the encounter on video. Since the video’s release, the woman has been fired from her job. Toles did not press charges against her.
Thornton’s employer, announced on its website that her employment had been terminated after the incident.
Some reports gave the woman’s last name as Mueller, which prompted Brandon Mueller, her soon to be ex-husband to post on his Facebook page that he had been separated from her for more than a year and that, “as a man of color,” he was appalled by her behavior.
The incident is the latest viral video documenting white women objecting to activities of black people.
