Sarah Zawjahtul Abdullah Salaam was shopping at Family Dollar when the incident occurred, and posted a video to social media which was since deleted.
In the clip, Rawstory reported, Salaam was called out by the store manager for wearing a niqab.
If you are in this country, whether you are an immigrant or natural born citizen, and you are so unhappy with the laws and customs then please feel free to exit the borders east, west, north or south. I promise that those of us who live here and love this country won’t care one little bit,” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“You need to remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store. Remove that from your face or remove yourself from the store, please. I’m the manager, and I’m telling you to leave my store. Have a blessed day. My name is Janie, and have a blessed day.”
The manager even threatened to call the police on the woman if she didn’t comply and remove her headscarf.
