A viral video showing a Walmart customer being arrested for shopping has been released, sparking cries of racism. The man, along with several companions, were asked to leave the retail store multiple times by a police officer before one of them was taken into custody. “I’m asking you to get your a** up off that cart and get out of the store,” the law enforcer warns.

No word on why the men were being told to leave, but the arresting officer was White and the shoppers Black, leading some to speculate the arrest was race-related. Still, the men appear to be antagonizing the officer in the clip in the minutes leading up to her pulling out her handcuffs.

You can watch the video below of the incident, and let us know in the comments below if you think the officer’s actions were justified.

    Considering the black people said, “this is racist” and the police officer admitted, on film, “yep, this is racist” is kind of a clear indicator that this was race related. Can you be any more clear than a police officer admitting on camera that their motives were racist??!?!?!?!

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
