Paige Yore

Walmart says a woman who posted a viral video on Facebook about a distraught Walmart cashier is lying.

The woman, Paige Yore, claimed she was standing in the checkout line at a Pueblo Walmart when she noticed the cashier having difficulty scanning items.

Yore told KRDO the cashier seemed distraught and he couldn't remember the codes to ring up items. She said customers behind her began yelling at the cashier to hurry up.

Yore said she stepped in and asked the young man if he was okay. She said the cashier hugged her and told her his mother committed suicide that morning and he had to come in to work so he could pay his rent and bills.

Yore recorded herself describing her encounter with the teenager and posted the video online. The video garnered 25 million views before she made it private.

A Walamart spokesperson said a review of surveillance video from the store shows Yore did not hug a cashier. Furthermore, the cashier's mom is alive.

But yore is sticking by her story.

“Did I plan on it? Absolutely not,” she told KRDO News. “Did I want that? Probably not.”

This isn't the first time an attention-seeker chose Walmart as the backdrop to perpetrate a hoax.

Last year, a woman claimed a Walmart customer hit her toddler for crying too much. The woman received $45,000 in donations, including $30,000 from Walmart. But the story turned out to be a hoax.

Yore told KRDO she received "thousands of death threats" after Walmart called her story a hoax.

    Folks making shyt up cause nobody can shut the phuk up. Everybody needs to tell what happened to them- good and bad. And there's always someone to gobble it up. There was a time when folks were kind and didn't take a selfie to boast. There was a time when bumps happened in life and folks suffered in silence. I know I am contradicting myself while standing on this here soapbox, but I truly miss the days when groupies kept it low, parents didn't post their pseudo-punishments, donations were made anonymously and good deeds were common.

  • harley_quinn2.0
