A white woman was fired after a video showing her questioning a black man and blocking his way into his own condo building went viral. In the post on Facebook, D'Arreion Toles showed the encounter he had with the unnamed woman while he was trying to go home.


The video starts as the man is entering the building they both live in; she is coming out with her dog. She decides to block the door and ask him a series of questions to prove he lives in the building. He refuses to answer and asks her to move out of his way. When she won't budge, he moves past her. She then proceeds to follow him into the elevator to his condo and watches him enter with his key.

The woman then changes her stance and wants to introduce herself as a neighbor, but at this point, Toles is over it. He remains calm throughout the exchange, but tells her if she continues to follow him, he will call the police.


Toles posted the video he shot of the encounter to social media, where it went viral. The woman's place of employment, the Tribeca Luxury Apartments in St. Louis, saw the video and fired her. .

Toles told CBS News:

I was kind of blown away, shocked and like wow. I am just glad I had my camera out. If I did not have my camera out, I feel it could have gone a totally different way. I am not mad at her. I am not upset with her. I am not going to go after her legally or anything like that. I wish her the best. would still have a conversation with her.





Of course, people were outraged:










This Twitter user is so fed up, she can't even come up with the right words:

When are incidents like this finally going to stop?

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
