A Mapleton, North Dakota, woman has lost her job in the wake of her racist rant caught on video.
Amber Elizabeth Hensley was recorded on video on Tuesday by three Somali women as she raged at them in a Fargo, North Dakota, Walmart parking lot.
In the video, she tells the women, “We’re gonna kill all of ya. We’re gonna kill every one of you f***in’ Muslims,” as she leans toward the passenger window of the car.
Sarah Hassan, a passenger in the car, can be heard saying, “You are a racist person, and I am not going back to my country,” as she filmed Hensley’s tirade.
One of the women be heard saying, “you’re fat, you can’t do anything.”
According to a social media statement Henlsey made later, the women had parked their car very close to hers, and she said they refused to move when she asked them to.
Sarah Hassan, 21, was in the car with her sister Leyla Hassan, 20, and their friend Rowda Soyan, 23. The three woman called police around 5:30 p.m. and showed them the video, supplied the woman’s license plate number, and filed a report, according to the Duluth News Tribune.
The women then gave the video to the Executive Director of the Afro American Development Association, Hukun Dabar, who shared the video on Facebook. The video has now been viewed more than 2 million times.
Hensley was employed at the Fargo CPA firm Horab and Wentz as a secretary. One of the firm’s partners told the Duluth News Tribune on Wednesday that Hensley would lose her job.
“Whenever she gets here, she will be let go,” the person said. He would only identify himself as a partner in the firm.
He went on to say, “Her views are not ours.”
Hensley apologized on her Facebook page before closing it down today. The Grand Forks Herald obtained the post before it was taken down:
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-tch. But there are absolutely no excuses. I am in tears with regret and will take any form of punishment deemed fit.
