Woman speaks after tirade at Trader Joe’s store in North Hollywood


NORTH HOLLYWOOD (KABC) – A woman tells her story after making a tirade for being asked to wear a mask at a Trader Joe’s store in North Hollywood. She says the angry encounter started in response to a customer who asked harassed her because she was not wearing a mask.”Immediately, he started using obscenities against me, saying ‘f you’, the word c, ‘wear your fing mask’ all of that,” she said. The woman, who asked ABC7 not to not use her name, says she called a Trader Joe’s store in Toluca Lake and that the manager gave her permission to enter and shop without a face covering. But she claims she accidentally went to North Hollywood where another manager told her that she would make an exception allowing her to buy maskless groceries that day only.

The confrontation happened when she started shopping.

“I did what any normal human being, a woman, would do if harassed by a man, not knowing if he was crazy, so I started screaming in self defense,” said- she.

The woman says she does not regret what she said during the meeting.

“Contrary to all the lies they spread, I had no political agenda. I had nothing. They could use everything I said later in my anger, it doesn’t matter. What happened to me shouldn’t happen to anyone else, “she says.

The woman declined to give details of her health.

ABC7 has contacted Trader Joe about this story and is awaiting a response.
