In a video captioned, “This racist Target employee called the police on us for dancing in Target… So we danced anyway,” one TikToker wanted to hold a flash mob in a Target store without permission. When the security guard said they weren’t allowed, she accused the employee of being racist.
Flash Mob Clash at Target
Popstar Baby Storme, aka Janice Mofus, caused controversy after a flash mob video shoot at a Target store was shut down by an employee.
The Racism Allegation
During the flash mob performance, Mofus alleged racial discrimination against her predominantly black dance troupe.
Social Media Outcry
Mofus took to social media to share the incident with her followers, branding the Target employee as ‘racist’ and fueling a wave of reactions.
Target’s Store Policy Stand
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.”
Dance Interruption and Altercation Unfolds
Mofus and her dancers, dressed in gothic attire, began their flash mob performance, only to be disrupted by the store employees due to safety concerns.
Resilience Amid Disruption
Undeterred, the dancers persevered, with multiple individuals recording the performance, and one can be heard shouting, “Can you move?” at the security guard.
Disappointment From Mofus
Mofus expressed her disappointment and frustration over the incident, “At first, he said we couldn’t film. But when we stopped filming, he still continued to kick us out, saying that we were a “safety violation,” and that the police were on their way.”
30 Minutes From Home Time
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.”
Divisive Online Reactions
The incident caused division on social media, with many questioning whether the security was being racist, “I’m extremely disappointed… please do better. This was completely disrespectful to someone’s business,” one put.
Black Community Confused
One X user even wrote, “’I’m black; where was this racist?” before the backlash took an unexpected turn.
Support for Security Guard
Andrew Tate’s brother Tristan called out the woman, claiming, “’If you can’t afford a location to shoot your music video, don’t make that somebody else’s problem,” before saying, “He isn’t racist.”
Offer To Pay For Legal Fees
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.
Target Remains Silent
Target has yet to respond to the store location and its stance on the allegations.
A Familiar Argument from Mofus
This incident follows a prior confrontation between Mofus and Citibank, where Mofus accused tellers of racial profiling during a deposit attempt.
Past Accusations Resurface
Mofus’ past accusations against Citibank employees resurfaced, making people question whether she’s accusing employees of racism as a publicity stunt.
