The incident occurred in Orion Township, Michigan where Takelia Hill was picking up dinner with her daughter, Makayla Green.

The teenager said that the woman was walking out of the store as she was walking in.

“Before I could walk into Chipotle, this woman was coming out, and I had moved out the way so she can walk out.” Green told the Detroit Free Press. “She bumped me, and I said, ‘Excuse you.’ And then she started cussing me out and saying things like I was invading her personal space.”

The newspaper reports that Green called her mother over and that Hill witnessed the woman screaming in her daughter’s face. The initial confrontation was not caught on camera, but Green started filming during the second half.

Hill stated that the woman and her white male driver aggressively backed their minivan up. Feeling threatened, she hit on their back window. It was then that the woman emerged from the car pointing a pistol at the family.

“Get the f**k back!” She yelled, “Don’t you f**king jump behind my car!”

She kept the gun trained on the woman. According to the report, a man later helped the woman into the car. He also yelled at Hill and her daughters saying, “Who the f**k do you think you guys are?”

As the woman returned to her car, Hill asked her why she bumped into her daughter. The woman replied, “You cannot just walk around calling white people racist … White people aren’t racist … I care about you and I’m sorry if you had an incident that has made someone make you feel like that. No one is racist.”
