Watch: Racist Woman Pulls Gun On Black Couple For Spending The Day At The Park
A new video is going viral showing an employee at the Kampgrounds of America (KOA) pulling a gun on a Mississippi couple for walking their dog at the park on Sunday.
According to The Clarion-Ledger, the woman approached the couple with the gun in her hand to tell them that they shouldn’t be there.
The couple were not aware that they had to have a reservation to be there.
“All you had to do is tell us you have to have a reservation and we would have left,” the woman filming the video told the park employee. “You didn’t have to pull a gun.”
The gun-toting campground employee slowly put her handgun back into her pocket.
“Well I’m just telling you — you need to leave because it’s under private ownership,” she said. “You can’t be out here.”
The Black couple tried to explain to her why they didn’t think they needed a reservation to use the Oktibbeha County Lake, but the woman didn’t seem to care in the slightest.
