Music Store Worker Fired After Mocking Old Man Wearing MAGA Hat
Woman's Facebook post goes viral catching the attention of her employer
A woman was fired from her job at a music store after she confronted a man wearing a Make America Great Again hat in Starbucks, according to reports.
Mankey then posted on Twitter criticizing the man:
“He will never forget me and will think seriously about wearing that hat in my town ever again,” she wrote.
“If you see him in this hat, please confront him. You do not want to be the person who didn’t speak up as we slipped into fascism.”
The man, only known as Victor, told NBC Bay Area that the woman had called him “a Nazi” and attempted to get other customers in the shop to mock the man.

I've messaged Parker & let "her" know that I will be contacting "her" husbands work that "she" publicly posts on her FB page, to show them the violence their employees' wife is promoting. pic.twitter.com/r45rU8RVPO
“This woman comes over, and she says ‘Is that a Trump hat?’ I said, ‘I think it is, yes.’ And then she turned to the rest of the audience, the people in Starbucks and said ‘Hey, everybody! Come over here! Let’s get this guy! He’s a hater! I’m calling him out! He hates brown people. He’s a Nazi,'” Victor recalled.
The woman's post went viral before catching the attention of her employer Gryphon Strings music store, who announced on Facebook they would be terminating her employment.
