Woman gets fired after racist rant goes viral

U.S. & World

CHARLOTTE, NC (WCNC) A white woman in Charlotte, North Carolina has been fired after she was caught on camera confronting two black women in a parking lot and making racial comments. 

In a series of viral videos posted to Facebook, Susan Westwood can be heard harassing the two sisters who were waiting for AAA outside of the apartment complex, where they all three live. 

In one of those videos, Westwood asks if she needs to bring out her concealed weapon.

Feeling threatened by her comments, the sisters called police and filed a report. 

Westwood is now facing four criminal summons for communicating threats and simple assault. 

She has been fired from her job at Spectrum Cable.
