A white man was beaten mercilessly after allegedly using the N-word on a black man while inside a Michigan Macy’s.
The police are now investigating the matter.
The shocking video was filmed at the Macy’s store at the Genesee Valley Center in Flint Township and has circulated on social media.
Local rapper FT Quay shared the video on Facebook on Monday and claimed that the clip was not the entire video.
He claimed that he and a ‘bro’ went to the mall and asked a man on the phone about a shirt size.
The man answered them and returned to his phone call, where he allegedly told someone on the phone ‘no one just some n****r,’ which resulted in the black man pouncing on him.
The brief clip shows the man punching the other in the face, with the unsuspecting man immediately asking: ‘What are you doing that for?’
As the man on the ground extends his arm to keep the angered man away, the assailant punches him again and tells him not to touch him.
At this point, the white man tells the black man he is sorry as the assailant punches him a few more times.
Flint Township Lt. Brad Wangler said that they are investigating the incident but no one is currently in custody.
‘Yes we are investigating and at this point, no one is in custody,’ Wangler said, MLive.com reports.
A Macy’s spokesperson said that they beefed up security at the store, following the incident.
‘We are deeply saddened about the incident that took place on Monday at Macy’s Genesee Valley as the safety of Macy’s customers and colleagues is our top priority,’ Andrea Schwartz, senior director of media relations for Macy’s, said in a statement.
‘We take these situations very seriously and are working closely with local authorities on this investigation, deferring all comments about the case to them per policy.’
Watch video below:
Macy’s is calling the beating of an employee at its Genesee Valley Center store “unprovoked” and township police say they are actively looking for two men who were involved in the attack.They shouldn't have to look far as the man filming the video is the one who posted it on his Facebook page. That man is a "rapper" who calls himself FT Quay.Quay’s post that accompanies the video says the assault occurred after the white man who was punched used a racial slur in a private cell phone conversation not involving the men. The man who did the punching, whom Quay identified as his brother, is black.As it turns out the employee did NOT use the N word and the attack was completely unprovoked in any way. In fact the only person using the dreaded N word seems to be the man doing the beating, which I have beeped out for this post.
