Amber Hensley was fired from her job after a viral video (below) showed her going on a rant against three Somali women in Fargo, North Dakota, on July 25.
"We’re going to kill you," Hensley told the Muslim women, reports KVRR. "We’re going to kill all you f***ing Muslims."
One of the Muslim women, Sarah Hassan, recorded the incident, and Facebook user Hukun Dabar posted the video with a caption:
What happened today at Walmart Fargo - 13th Ave S Parking lot is unacceptable, Three Muslim ladies were at the parking lot , a white lady approached them with hateful words and threatened them "that she will kill all of them" and no one defended them, everybody was watching, really is this Fargo, the welcoming City!! This is the fifth incident happening in our community. This must be stopped.
Leyla Hassan, one of the Muslim women, recalled the incident to KVVR: "She called me from the window and she told me, 'Come on, fix the parking.'"
"She started talking about my sister’s eyes, because she has like, crossed eyes," her sister, Sarah, added. "I was like, why are you saying this stuff to my sister?"
"I’m about to have surgery for my eyes," said Leyla. "We were like, 'Is there any problem?' She was like, 'Can't you see her eyes? You are bad words and Muslims and we are going to kill you all.'"
"Actually, this kind of discrimination happens every single day," said Sarah. "She started threatening me that she's gonna kill us. That’s when I had to take out my phone and I started recording everything there."
"We told her we were going to record the video, and show it to the police," said Rowda Sowan, the third Muslim woman in the group. "She was like, 'Police is not going to do nothing for you guys. They’re not going to do nothing.'"
The police are investigating the incident, but no charges have been filed so far.
"I just want to tell her to change the way she thinks about people because we’re all human beings," Sarah said. "It's increasing day by day, especially after [President] Donald Trump won."
Hensley wants to give the women a face-to-face apology, and issued an apology to KVVR:
I would first like to apologize for the horrible things that I said to the two ladies at Walmart. It was not a Christian like thing to do AT ALL and wish I could take it back, but I lost my cool and I can’t. I am terribly sorry. I just wish that the whole video could be shown.
And the things that were stated before she starts taping. She had parked way too close to my car and I couldn’t get in, when I asked her to move she refused, I asked her again and she swore at me calling me a fat b—h, to that I informed her that I was a Christian and asked her if she knew who Jesus was, she said f–k JESUS and I lost it! But there are absolutely no excuses. I am in tears with regret and will take any form of punishment deemed fit.
The punishment ended up being fired from her job, according to her ex-employer:
Horab & Wentz does not agree with or support the statements expressed by Amber Hensley in the recently posted video. She does not reflect the views of Horab & Wentz. Ms. Hensley is no longer employed with Horab & Wentz effective immediately. Amber was employed as a secretary and was not a CPA.
