While #BreathingWhileBlack continues to become a popular offense worthy of multiple speed dial phone calls to the police leading to jail time and public embarrassment, apparently white women in Canada are out here throwing poop at folks without a care in the world.
Monday, employees at a Tim Hortons coffee shop close to Vancouver found themselves in an awkward situation when they were attacked by an irate customer who chose to throw her feces at them during a fit of rage.
According to The Province newspaper, the argument reportedly began after staff told the woman she could not use the restroom. That’s when the customer got into an argument with the employees and was asked to leave the premises.
Her reasonable response? To defecate on the floor and then throw her feces at the shocked clerks.
The encounter was caught on video by a store camera and has since gone viral. In the footage, the staff appears to be trying to calm down the unidentified customer while she paces in front of the cash register, shouting and gesturing towards them.
When attempts to de-escalate her rant fail, she proceeds to squat against a wall and relieve herself, right then and right there The employees then run for cover as the literal s***storm rains down on them.
“Our current understanding is that the team member used their discretion in this case and denied access to this guest based on past behaviour and out of concern for the immediate safety of team members and guests in the restaurant,” said a Tim Hortons spokesperson.
Police were eventually called to the store and arrested the woman in the parking lot, spokesperson Corporal Holly Largy clarified.
It is also being reported that prosecutors are now considering what charges, if any, to bring against the woman, and a court date for her has been set. Police in the area say the woman is no stranger to law enforcement and they have dealt with her antics before.
The real story here is the this white woman was treated with more care and dignity than the two Black men who were minding their business at that Philly Starbucks and that alone speaks volumes.
And speaking of Starbucks, the American coffee giant recently told its employees to give the restroom key to any customer that asked for it.
“We don’t want to become a public bathroom, but we’re going to make the right decision 100 percent of the time and give people the key,” Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schultz said last week.
Tim Hortons has yet to mention if this incident is making them reconsider their own bathroom policy, but the staff at this particular store is probably wishing they’d given that customer the restroom key after all.

This woman took a shit and threw it at a Tim Hortons employee.
