Elderly Woman Outraged When She Sees What This Kid Is Selling Outside Target (Video)

An elderly woman was recently caught on video humiliating and scolding a teenager for selling candy outside a Target, leaving the girl in tears. That’s when some friendly shoppers came to the girl’s rescue.

The video of the ordeal has gotten more than five million views and 70,000 shares on social media.

Andy Lizarraga, who posted the video on Facebook, said she started filming when she saw the woman harassing the teenager for selling candy for $1 outside of the Rowland Heights Target in California.

“She comes up to the little kid and is like, ‘Where is your license? Have you asked permission to be here?’ And then the kid is like, ‘No, I’m just selling candy. I’m trying to make some money,’” Lizarraga explains to CBS Los Angeles

That’s when Jay Lopez came and intervened.

“She continued to yell at her and scream at her and tell her if she didn’t have a permit, that she was going to go to jail, that Sheriff’s were on their way,” Lopez told CBS Los Angeles. “When I walked up, she was crying hysterically.”

Lopez had seen enough, so he offered to buy all of the girls candy. It wasn’t clear what the girl and her older brother were selling the candy for. He purchased the lot for $80 and handed the candy out to fellow shoppers.

“If it was Girl Scout cookies and a white girl, and I’m not putting race into this, but I bet it would have been a different story,” Lopez said.

“Mind your own business. Take care of yourself and your family and everything will come together for you,” he said.
