Pennsylvania second lady films woman calling her a racial slur at the grocery store

Pennsylvania’s second lady, Gisele Barreto Fetterman, on Sunday tweeted that she had been the victim of a racist attack while shopping at her local grocery store and shared a video of a woman calling her a racial slur through the window of her car.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Fetterman, 38, said that she was normally accompanied by state troopers whenever she leaves her home, but she decided to go out on her own when she realized that a sale on golden kiwis would be ending soon at her neighborhood Aldi.

She says that the woman who accosted her recognized her as the wife of Pennsylvania’s Lt. Gov. John Fetterman (D) which is what apparently led to the racist incident.

“*TRIGGER WARNING* I love love love this country but we are so deeply divided,” Gisele Fetterman tweeted Sunday. “I ran to the local grocery store and was met

The wife of Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor said she was the target this weekend of a racially-motivated verbal assault at her local grocery store. A video she filmed capturing part of the incident has since gone viral.

Gisele Barreto Fetterman posted about the incident on Twitter on Sunday. The two-second clip she shot shows a woman lowering her mask to say, “You’re a n—–,” into Fetterman’s half-opened car window.

“I love love love this country but we are so deeply divided, I ran to the local grocery store and was met by and verbally assaulted by this woman who repeatedly told me I do not belong here,” Fetterman tweeted along with the video, which apparently came at the end of the altercation.

She wrote that the woman who had confronted her kept talking to her after

“She said, ‘There’s that n-word that Fetterman married. You don’t belong here. No one wants you here. You don’t belong here,’” Fetterman, who was born in Brazil, said in an interview with The Washington Post.

Upset and shaken, Fetterman managed to film the woman accosting her again outside her car. She posted a video of the abuse to Twitter Sunday night, along with a description of what happened.

Fetterman, 38, said she has been threatened and insulted before, but never in person. “The fact that she was so comfortable and bold to just do it to my face with an audience … that was really scary,” Fetterman said.

The attack on Fetterman comes as political tensions have reached a boiling point in Pennsylvania, with both President Trump and his Democratic opponent, former vice president Joe Biden, targeting the state as the single most important battleground in next month’s elections.

3 Girls and 1 Woman Killed in New Jersey Furniture Store Fire After They Were Trapped Behind a Metal Gate

youtube Fire

Three young girls and one woman are dead after they were trapped behind a metal gate while trying to escape from a five-alarm fire at furniture store in New Jersey.

The devastating blaze occurred on Monday night at a two-story commercial building in Elizabeth that housed a dollar store on the ground floor and a furniture shop on the second level, Kelly Martins, a public information officer for the city, tells PEOPLE.

Authorities believe the fire was sparked by a soda machine located on the ground floor and the flames quickly spread to the upper level, where all the victims were located.

The victims initially tried to escape through a rear staircase that connected to the dollar store, but the smoke was too heavy and pushed them to another exit that was blocked by a metal gate, according to Martins.
