In a series of videos that went viral over the weekend, Susan Westwood is seen harassing two African-American women in a parking lot on October 19th. At one point Westwood threatens, “Want me to bring out my concealed weapon, too? This is North Carolina, by the way.”
Mary Garris was visiting her sister Leisa at her south Charlotte home that night, and says when Mary went to leave, her car wouldn’t start so they called AAA. Westwood approached them, questioning what they were doing there, and was relentless and antagonistic in telling them they didn’t belong, saying, “Who are you? Do you live here? Is your boyfriend here? Is your baby daddy here? I’m white and I’m hot. I’m white and I’m hot.”
In the video, Westwood brags about making $125,000, however this morning 51-year-old Westwood has been fired from her job at Spectrum Enterprise and has issued a statement saying “The incident recorded in Charlotte is a blatant violation of Charter’s code of conduct and clearly disregards the company’s commitment to inclusion and respectful behavior. As such, Ms. Westwood’s employment with the company has been terminated, effective immediately.”
