Child gets scolded by shopper for selling candy outside Target until good Samaritan steps in

Video Capturing Girl Getting Scolded By Shopper For Selling Candy Outside Target Goes Viral

A video capturing an altercation between a child, a man and a woman in front of a California Target has gone viral.

"I showed it to friends and family, not intending it to go viral at all and I guess people just started sharing it and sharing it," Andy Lizarraga, who captured the video and posted to her Facebook last week told KCBS.

The video shows a woman scolding a young child for selling candy outside of the store, when a man steps in and confronts the woman for harassing the child. He then buys all the child's candy and gives it to other shoppers.

"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 said.

Jay Lopez saw the woman yelling at the child and decided to step in and help.

"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," Jay Lopez told KCBS.

"When I walked up, she was crying hysterically," he said.

Lopez ended up purchasing $80 worth of candy from the child.

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