Black Friday Brawl Breaks Out In Missouri Mall

Black Friday Brawl Breaks Out In Missouri Mall
(FreshAsFrankie) Retail locations around the country have taken quite a few steps to mitigate the Black Friday chaos that has plagued shopping centers in years past, including implementing ticket systems and having people queue in organized lines before entering the store. It seems inevitable, however, that altercations will break out between customers as folks scramble to grab the last hot deals.

One such incident occurred outside a Missouri mall when a teen was shot in the parking lot of a center in the town of Columbia late Thursday night, though it appears the shooting was not over merchandise.

According to police, two men were sitting inside a car when one of them accidentally discharged his gun while trying to holster the weapon. The two men reportedly know each other, reports local news outlet KMIZ.

The unidentified 19-year-old received “life-threatening injuries” during the shooting outside of the Columbia Mall, which was open until midnight on Thanksgiving.

Police have yet to make any arrests, and the investigation remains ongoing.

Columbia wasn’t the only town to see Black Friday violence; a shopping center in Alabama was shut down early after a brawl erupted at the Riverchase Galleria outside Birmingham.

A video posted on Facebook appears to show a cop restraining one woman on the floor while another officer struggles to subdue a second woman.

Walmart Gets Backlash for Selling “N***er Brown” Wig Cap Online

Walmart Gets Backlash for Selling "N***er Brown" Wig Cap Online

Walmart is under fire for the description of a product on the website that allegedly contained a racial slur.

A brown wig cap that was listed and sold by a third-party vendor has reportedly been removed after several people attested to coming across the n-word while skimming the product’s text. “Jagazi Natural’s Full Cap Weaving Net Durable Stretchy Weaving Net Weaving Cap Wig Cap – Size M (N****r-Brown),” a screen shot that has been circulating the internet reads. The Arkansas-based retailer initially edited the text, but it was eventually removed once the controversy broke out.

An apology over the incident was issued by Walmart’s Director of National Media Relations, Ragan Dickens, who stated: “We are very sorry and appalled that this third party seller listed their item with this description on our online marketplace. It is a clear violation of our policy and has been removed, and we are investigating the seller to determine how this could have happened.”
