The woman screamed ‘F*** black lives matter!’
This week a Trump supporter went viral for all the wrong reasons after video surfaced of her yelling anti-Black Lives Matter rhetoric at a Starbucks barista in Santee, California.
The clip – which was taken by a concerned customer – shows the agitated woman getting into a heated war of words with barista Alex Beckom, 19, after being politely asked her to wear the Trump 2020 mask under her chin, correctly over her face.
Instead of leaving quietly, the woman then accused the coffee shop employee of discriminating against her for her political views as a supporter of the president.
“I’m not going to listen to anything you say to me when you talk to me like that and I know it’s because you’re discriminating against me because I’m a Trump supporter,” she responded.

After it was repeated that she was only being asked to properly cover her face per COVID-19 guidelines, the women spat out, “F**k Black lives matter,” before asking for a straw and some sugar for her drink.
“And again next time you come in I’m going to need you to keep your mask on or else I can’t help you,” the barista repeated nonplussed.

“No, no it’s not a law and I can show you the penal code and everything, it’s a hoax,” the woman insisted. She concluded by shouting as she left the store, “I don’t have to wear a mask, I’m not going to wear a mask. This is America and I don’t have to do what you say. Trump 2020!”
