A Black woman who says she was violently attacked by a pet store owner when she asked for a refund has posted the video of their encounter.

Judea Strong captured the incident on her cell phone on June 28, 2021 at Exotics & Aquatics pet store in Roanoke, Virginia.

She said she went to the store to ask for a refund for snake food when the owner ordered her to leave the store.

When she went to return the snake food, she was told the store doesn't issue cash refunds, only store credit.

She said, after returning to the store several times, there was no one on duty to issue the store credit.

Strong's boyfriend also attempted to get store credit without success. He posted a scathing review of the business on Facebook, which angered the store owner, Daniel Rosen.

Rosen responded to the review, asking him to not come back. The store also added that if he did return, he would be escorted out.

On June 28, Strong returned to the store to get a refund. Her boyfriend remained in the car, since he was banned from the store.

Video footage shows Strong calmly asking for a refund, when Rosen, his elderly mom and his son came from behind the counter and ordered her to leave.

"His mom tries to grab me and throw me out," said Strong. "I tell them, 'don't put your hands on me.' Several people are trying to hold him back. He's absolutely enraged. He literally picks me up off the ground, carries me over to the door and throws me out," said Strong.

Her boyfriend, who by now is outside the door, grabbed Rosen and restrained him after he put his foot on Strong's chest.

Rosen later told police he put his foot on Strong's chest "to push her out."

A substitute judge found Rosen not guilty of assault earlier this week.

"For two years, her and her boyfriend came into the store belittling my employees and berating my mother," explained Rosen.

He said Strong did not record herself cursing out his mother before going to the counter. Strong denied that accusation by Rosen.

Strong decided to post the video online to draw attention to her ordeal.

"After the charges were dismissed and everything, I was like this isn't right. I can't let this happen. I want to let other people know," said Strong.

Rosen said after the video was posted on Facebook, his store received numerous racist phone calls and threats.

"I assure you I'm not a racist. I have many ethnicities working for me and I'm friends with them," said Rosen.

Strong never mention race in her post.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed re-posted Strong's video with the caption:

"A Black woman tried to get a refund from Exotics & Aquatics in Roanoke Virginia, and the suspected white supremacist owner and her son violently assaulted the woman."

Black Twitter was outraged after a character on Prime Video's "Harlem" bust it wide open in a scene with star Meagan Good.

Viewers who tuned in to watch "Harlem" didn't expect to see a male character exposing his back door during what was supposed to be an intimate heterosexual scene.

The Black women empowerment series has been heavily criticized for being "too woke" and liberal for many viewers.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed wrote:

"This #HarlemOnPrime is really an LGBT show disguised as a "girl power" vehicle. All the sex scenes are generally same sex couples. And the one "heterosexual" sex scene that was about to happen was with Meagan Good, but the dude got in bed and spread his boochie cat open."

Black Twitter expressed similar sentiments.

Holiday Inn's parent company has launched an investigation into a "shocking" viral video that shows a Black customer berating an autistic employee.

IHG hotels, which owns Holiday Inn, was disturbed by the video that was posted to Twitter.com on Sunday by Tariq Nasheed under the hashtag "Mayonnaise Meltdown."

"Why did you get mad and hit the compruter [sic]," the customer asked repeatedly.

The employee is seen punching himself in the face and hitting his head on a computer monitor after the customer pressed him about a reservation error.

"You've ruined my night, you've ruined my life, man," the employee said before walking away in tears.

The customer was later ejected from the hotel for harassing other employees.
 

IHG hotels called the treatment of the employee "unacceptable" and vowed to investigate the incident.

"We were shocked and saddened to see the video and the clearly unacceptable treatment of a longtime hotel colleague," Jacob Hawkins, a spokesperson for IHG Hotels & Resorts told Newsweek.

Hawkins said the Holiday Inn location where the incident took place is an independently owned franchise.

Still, he said every employee representing IHG Hotels & resorts "deserves to be treated with respect and dignity."

A Reddit user who identified himself as the employee said he quit his job and drank heavily after the video went viral.

He added that he suffers from bipolar disorder and schizo-affective disorders.

Empathetic Internet users donated over $123,000 to a GoFundMe created by a YouTube vlogger who identified the former employee as "Caleb C."

Twitter users were quick to criticize Tariq and the customer who filmed the video. A group of women attacked Tariq who referred to them as "non-FBA bed wenches."

Tariq Nasheed went off on Youtube vlogger Jeremy Hambly on his Twitter page last night. In a series of tweets, Tariq accused Jeremy of being a "white supremacist" and a "racist".

I have never heard of Jeremy Hambly until yesterday, when I wrote my post titled "Over $41,000 raised for Holiday Inn employee who was harassed by Black customer."

For some reason, Tariq decided to attack your auntie in a blistering post on FBAtimes.com, in which he refers to me as a "non-FBA blogger" who aligns myself with "suspected white supremacists."

I am a non-assuming middle aged blogger who never goes out of my way to insult or degrade Black bloggers. You would have to search way back in my archives to find a negative post about another Black blogger.

I am hurt and dismayed that Tariq chose to attack me in this manner rather than email me to discuss any issue that he may have had with me.

Below is an excerpt from his article:

"Non-FBA gossip blogger who goes by the name Sandra Rose, has featured a story on her site SandraRose.com where she is promoting a Gofundme page and YouTube channel created by a suspected white supremacist named Jeremy Hambly who also goes by The Quartering.

Sandra Rose has a history of writing articles that denigrate Foundational Black American celebrities. Many people online has had issues with the weird articles from Sandra Rose’s website, where she mocked Jay-z and Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy’s hair"

A Holiday Inn employee who was harassed and filmed by a rude customer over a reservation error has received overwhelming support online.

Caleb is the autistic man seen having a mental breakdown in a viral video recorded by an irate Holiday Inn customer.

The rude customer was ejected from the hotel for harassing other hotel employees.

The video went viral after Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed posted it on his Twitter page, and accused Caleb of being "racist".

A YouTube vlogger raised over $41,000 for Caleb on GoFundMe.

The vlogger who created the GoFundMe account criticized Tariq and referred to him as a repressed homosexual because of his rude responses to Black women on the app Clubhouse.

The women dragged Tariq and told him he was "cancelled" for his insensitive treatment of a man who was clearly in distress.

After quitting his job, Caleb took to Reddit.com to explain what happened.

"While I've now quit this position (my management supported me, and told me I'm welcome back. The guest was ejected from the hotel for escalating issues with staff and the owners.)

I do have mental disorders. I suffer from BPD and schizo-affective disorders. What this fine, 5’5” bald gentleman behind the camera DIDN’T record was the fact that he called me a F**GOT for an associates mistake.

He was aggressive, and fishing for a reaction. He sure got it; and I’m glad this was a wake up call for me to stop slaving away for corporations who do not care about you at all, or the guests."

Watch below as women attack Tariq on Clubhouse app.

Twitter activist Tariq Nasheed (pictured right) shared a video of a Holiday Inn worker having a meltdown after a Black hotel guest harassed him about a reservation error.

Tariq described the Holiday Inn employee as "racist" because he began punching himself and hit his head on a computer monitor.

The employee removed himself from an obviously stressful situation by walking away. "You destroyed my life!" he told the customer before leaving.

The angry guest appeared to calm down and seemed to understand that the employee was emotionally overwhelmed. But he posted the video online anyway and it went viral, garnering millions of views.

There was nothing racist about the exchange. In fact, the customer seems to be harassing the employee over a simple mistake.

A Reddit user who claimed to be the employee explained that he had too much to drink after going viral because his meltdown, caused by his schizo-affective disorder, was "documented by a rude customer at an establishment which I was employed."

The employee said he was driving drunk and he wondered "Why is this happening to me? Why can't people have basic human kindness and compassion for someone obviously not sound?"

Many of Tariq's followers assumed the employee was drunk at work when the incident occurred. However, the employee said he was drunk after the video went viral.

One of Tariq's followers threatened to come and see him when he travels to the United States.

Corporations such as Holiday Inn who hire people with mental illness should be commended. But such employees should be protected from rude customers.

Someone in management should have heard the commotion and approached the customer to offer their assistance. Another option is to avoid placing mentally ill people in vulnerable positions such as a front desk.

Question: Do you think companies ban recording videos of employees on the job site? Is recording video on private property a violation of employee rights?

Kids 'R' Kids terminated the contract of a preschool location in Georgia after a viral photo shows white kids eating while Black children wait for their food.

The image was taken from a surveillance system that is accessible by parents via mobile apps.

Outraged Twitter users demanded answers after the photo went viral.

"Look at this photo of teachers serving white children while the black children watch & wait for their food. PLEASE RT. This is Kids R Kids in Sandy Springs, GA. Surprised???"

Tariq Nasheed and other social media activists retweeted the photo, as it went viral.

One Twitter user with the handle @_solowKi wrote: "Imagine seeing 0 black children with food in front of them & saying you need context. It’s no saving some of y'all."

She added: "& they're trying to justify this bullshit by saying they feed kids by diet. Which pissed me off even more, so I want this viral so everyone involved is fired. Beyond insultin."

David Vinson, President & Chief Executive Officer of Kids 'R' Kids International, Inc., responded to the backlash on social media.

"After further review and much consideration of the photo/video in question, our company has decided to terminate that franchisee's Kids 'R' Kids contract and branding, effective immediately, leaving them to operate independently.

We apologize to the family, the community and all of those impacted by this situation and will use this as a learning tool to remind our Kids 'R' Kids staff on the importance of diversity and inclusivity."

Tariq Nasheed sparked a lively debate on Twitter.com when he tweeted: "Instead of talking about our tangibles, this is what the white Democrats think will appeal to us."

The Twitter activist uploaded a PSA video created by director Angela Gomes and producer Paul Fox to register Black voters. Gomes and Fox are Caucasian. The video features talented Black pole dancers who quickly gain the attention of Black viewers.

The dancers urge Black people to "Get your booty to the poll." The video links to a website, www.getyourbootytothepoll.com.

Tariq believes the Democrats would never insult other races and nationalities by delivering their message with tits and azz. He claims Democrats have such low regard for Black people that they didn't think twice about creating this video.

Pictures and video have surfaced of the male nanny hired by Dwyane Wade to watch his two young sons 24 hours-a-day.

Wade had just divorced his first wife, Siohvaughn Funches, and received full custody of his young sons. But he was a star NBA player who was often on the road. He needed someone to watch his kids. So, rather than call their mother, he turned to a male nanny.

Wade, 38, recently made headlines when he announced his 12-year-old son, Zion Wade, calls himself "Zaya" and prefers feminine pronouns.

The Internet wondered if someone influenced young Zaya to lean towards an alternative lifestyle.

In one video uploaded to social media by activist Tariq Nasheed, the nanny is seen boating with young Zion, who seems to be every bit a wide-eyed, fun-loving boy.

The Internet believes someone touched Zion when he was very young. Child experts say young children are eager to please adults in their lives. Some children are very easily manipulated by trusting adults.

Was Dwyane Wade a little too trusting with a non-family male around his sons? Is that why all images of the male nanny were scrubbed from Wade's social media?

So many questions.

Universal Pictures' film Queen & Slim landed in 5th place at the box office behind Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, starring Tom Hanks as Fred Rogers, the beloved TV personality who had an "emotional" relationship with his producer Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys).

According to Box Office Mojo, Queen & Slim took in an estimated $11.7 million over the three-day weekend and an estimated $15.8 million over five days. The film's budget was $18 million, which doesn't include the tens of millions of dollars spent on TV, Internet and print advertising.

Queen and Slim is a typical Hollywood propaganda film that, according to social media activist Tariq Nasheed, was intended to make white people "feel good", while portraying Black people as “buffoons" who kill each other for no reason.

Tariq says there was only one "bad" white person in the movie (the cop who was killed at the beginning). Every other white person is depicted as good people on some "Underground Railroad sh*t".

Queen & Slim was written by Lena Waithe, a male-identified lesbian (pictured right), and directed by Melina Matsoukas, left, best known as a music video director. Matsoukas' father is of Greek and Jewish descent, and her mother is African-Cuban and Jamaican.

According to Tariq, Waithe and Matsoukas portray Black people as either ghetto "buffoons" or impulsive wannabe heroes with poor insight and bad judgment.

Tariq was particularly annoyed that Matsoukas and the film's stars, British actors Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, are Non-Foundational Black Americans in the ADOS movement for reparations.

The majority of glowing film reviews were written by white movie critics who fell for the lie that Waithe and Matsoukas are somehow experts on the Black experience in the Deep South.

The improbable, unlikely story of a defense attorney throwing her career away for a guy she just met on the Tinder app is couched in a "love story" that is about as believable as Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Tariq notes that Queen & Slim's terrible choices led to their ultimate demise at the end.

Though Queen & Slim received an "A-" CinemaScore, the movie did not meet box office expectations.

Celebrities and Black Instagram bloggers were recruited at the last minute on Saturday to plead with Black people to rush to the theaters to support the film.
