‘Insecure' Woman Tries to Block Black Neighbor From Entering His Own Home

A video that's gone viral shows the moment a St. Louis woman refuses to let a man into his own building, and now that woman has been fired.

"The video speaks for itself", Toles said.

In footage, which Mr Toles uploaded to Facebook on October 13, the woman is shown blocking the door way and asking Mr Toles which apartment he lives in.

In a Brooklyn deli last week, a white woman called police after claiming that a young black boy touched her behind. The woman stood behind Toles while he opened the door to his apartment and even then, he had to dismiss her again.

"I live here too", Toles said. "I am just glad I had my camera out". I am not upset with her. "I would still have a conversation with her".

The incident is the latest in a long series of videos posted to social media showing white women - "BBQ Betty", "Permit Patty", "Cornerstore Caroline" - calling the cops on black people over seemingly mundane acts.

D'Arreion Toles' viral video of his encounter with Hilary Brooke Mueller was enough to convince her minority-owned employer Tribeca-STL to fire her nearly immediately, according to KMOV4. "You pay rent", Toles said. "Never really thought this would happen to me, but it did! Let her live her life", added Toles. Have a good night, ma'am.

Toles told KMOV.com that no citations were issued as a result of the call.

In a statement to CBS Affiliate KMOV4, Tribeca-STL explained that they found the interaction "disturbing".

However, a few days after Toles' videos went live, his nosy neighbor was out of a job after her employer, Tribeca Luxury Apartments, caught wind of her behavior. After reviewing the incident, the company said the woman was terminated from her position.

Confirming they'd fired the woman, property company TriBeca Luxury apartments said: 'The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds. At Tribeca-STL we want all residents, guests and visitors to feel welcome, safe and respected.

News 4 buzzed the woman's unit and also called numbers listed for her to get her side of the story, but she never answered. After reviewing the video Toles posted, the company released a statement saying she was sacked, and that it will "never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company".
