When the video was posted on X, the social media app’s “Community Notes” were quick to defend the employee, “Target has a clear policy prohibiting this kind of behavior… It’s not right to assume that a Target employee is racist because they are following the store’s policy.”

Mofus even admitted that the store was 30 minutes from closing when she and her flash mob came in to disrupt the employees, “Mind you, it was 9.30, and Target closes at 10. The Target that we went to was literally empty; there was no one in there.”

Tristan offered to cover the security guard’s legal fees if a defamation lawsuit were pursued, “’Yawn. Somebody find me the security guard, he’s been shown online with his face and labeled a racist by this vile person… ‘I will cover all his legal fees for his defamation lawsuit, which he will win. $1,000 reward for putting us in touch,” he wrote.
