The “mom-of-the-year” involved in a brawl with a fellow shopper in a motorized chair inside an Indiana Walmart has spoken out.
And not only does the woman justify her actions, saying she was reacting to a racial comment the shopper made toward a store employee, but she defends the role of her 6-year-old son in the fight, The Blaze reported.
Appearing on the “Smiley Morning Show” on WZPL, in Greenfield, Ind., a person who identified herself as “Amber” claimed to be the mom seen in a video that has since gone viral, and said the incident all began when the other shopper used the n-word.
“(The woman) was sitting there yelling at an employee at Walmart, and she was telling her that she was a n***** and that she was going to get out of the chair and whoop her a**,” Amber said.
“So in my defense, I was standing up for the employee.”
As for her son, who actually participated in the fight by kicking the other woman in the head and throwing shampoo bottles at her, Amber saw nothing wrong with his behavior.
“My son is raised perfectly right,” she said.
Not only that, but Amber seemed to boast about his fighting skills.
“My son takes martial arts classes,” she told WZPL. “He’s been going to the gym for several years with his father. I mean, he’s been in the gym for a long time.
“He got a little crazy. I don’t have to worry about him ever being bullied.”
(She might have to worry about him hitting girls, though. Boys used to be told not to do that.)
It’s tough to say what is more disturbing; the mother’s comments about her young son, or that a half dozen or so shoppers stood by recording the altercation on their smartphones, refusing to intervene.
