A California woman suffered a meltdown in a Palo Alto Starbucks when she saw an elderly man wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat.
The woman, Rebecca Parker Mankey, took photos of the man and posted them on Facebook, where she explained that she yelled at him and called him a "Nazi" in front of the entire Starbucks.
"He will never forget me and will think seriously about wearing that hat in my town ever again," she wrote. "If you see him in this hat, please confront him. You do not want to be the person who didn't speak up as we slipped into fascism.”
The man in the MAGA hat, identified as only Victor, said the woman immediately called him a “Nazi.”
"This woman comes over, and she says, 'Is that a Trump hat?' I said, 'I think it is, yes.' And then she turned to the rest of the audience, the people in Starbucks and said, 'Hey, everybody! Come over here! Let's get this guy! He's a hater! I'm calling him out! He hates brown people. He's a Nazi,'" Victor recalled.
When Victor threatened to call the cops, the woman encouraged him to do so — but her motives were very dark.
"[I] Wanted him to call the police because I wanted to know his name, where he lived, his wife's name, and where kids went to school," Mankey wrote on Facebook.
However, the woman’s stunt didn’t turn out like she’d hoped.
Instead of being treated like the hero she clearly thinks she is, karma was swift.
Music store Gryphon Strings announced a short time later that Mankey was fired from her job at the store.
"Gryphon does not believe anyone should be harassed or subject to hate speech no matter their beliefs. Music has historically been something that has brought people of diverse socio-political backgrounds together,” the store wrote in a Facebook statement.
Good for them.
