A recent incident at a Target store in Aurora, Colorado, has left many shocked and bewildered. A woman, identified as Ersilia Campbell, walked into the store wearing blackface.
She Left Employees Shocked
Her actions didn’t stop there, as she engaged in a series of controversial behaviors that left store employees and onlookers taken aback.
She Found an Employee Instantly
Upon entering the Target store, Campbell wasted no time in seeking out a store employee.
She Asked About the Pride Section
Her question was seemingly innocuous – she wanted to know the location of the Pride section.
Pride Month Had Ended
When informed that Pride month had come to an end, Campbell’s demeanor shifted dramatically.
She Went on a Crazy Rant
She went on to make inflammatory remarks, suggesting that the LGBTQ community had somehow overshadowed the significance of the American flag with the Pride flag.
The Employee Didn’t Know What to Do
The store employee, understandably surprised by the turn of events, tried to navigate the conversation with tact and professionalism.
She Said She Was Like Lester Holt
But Campbell’s commentary didn’t stop there. In an attempt to justify her actions, she drew a comparison between herself and well-known news anchor Lester Holt, who had dressed up as Susan Boyle for Halloween.
Arguing It Was a Halloween Costume
She argued that her choice to wear blackface was no different from Holt’s costume portrayal. Her reasoning left many perplexed and sparked further outrage.
She Made Her Way to Starbucks
After her encounter at Target, Campbell made her way to a Starbucks, where she continued to make her presence known.
She Proudly Flaunted Her Trump Stickers
She sported Trump stickers on her shirt and openly expressed frustration about being fired from her job at the post office.
She Was An Ex-Postal Service Worker
Upon delving into her background, it was discovered that Campbell had been let go from her post office position in February.
She Has a Trespassing Notice Against Her
Her actions there might have mirrored her behavior at Target, as a trespassing notice had been posted at the post office, warning employees to contact the Postal Inspection Service if she were to return.
She Ranted On Social Media
Campbell’s discontent with her former coworkers was evident on social media platforms.
‘Lonely, Miserable, Trashy, and Lazy’
She used derogatory language to describe them, labeling them as “lonely, miserable, trashy, and lazy.” The irony of her statements, considering her own actions, did not go unnoticed.
