Woman caught on camera making racist comments in Wal-Mart

An Arkansas woman who was caught on camera making racist comments at Wal-Mart was banned from the store, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.

According to KSFM, Eva Hicks originally posted the video, which was shot at the Centerton location of the store on Monday.

Hicks said she asked the ranting woman to move aside so she could reach something in the aisle she was blocking.

The video shows the woman telling Hicks to "go back to Mexico," and when Hicks defends her right to be in the store, the woman unleashes a series of cruel statements proclaiming that she is not welcome in America.

When another shopper steps up to defend Hicks, the woman responds by saying, "A n***** is calling me ignorant?"

A Wal-Mart manager stepped in after overhearing the interaction and reassured Hicks that she is both welcome and wanted in the store and the country.

The manager then told the woman that her comments were inappropriate and she needed to leave the store, according to KSFM.

Wal-Mart released a statement regarding the incident:

"We value respect for everyone who visits our stores, whether they're customers or associates. We have no tolerance for the language or actions of this customer and are proud to see that our manager responded appropriately by asking her to leave the store."
