By now we are sure that many of you have seen a recent disturbing video of a white woman using racial slurs towards people in a supermarket. Now the woman has reportedly resigned from her job after her inappropriate actions caused her to go viral.
According to the New Haven Register, the woman and former Hamden Public Schools employee has been identified as Corinne Terrone. In the now viral video posted by a Facebook user, Corinne can be heard repeatedly using the n-word as she shouts at other customers at a ShopRite supermarket in East Haven.
East Haven Police Lt. Joseph Murgo reportedly released a statement and said the department “is aware of this disturbing video and the hate speech contained in it” but that no complaint has been filed.
A statement has been posted to the Hamden Public School’s website, which reads:
“We have become aware of video footage that appears to show an employee in our district engaged in abhorrent conduct. Specifically, the video appears to show the employee repeatedly calling an African-American man the N-word in a supermarket in East Haven. The video also appears to show the Hamden employee spitting at the aforementioned African-American male as he was walking away from the employee. It also appears that the employee’s children witnessed her conduct. Because her children were present, school administrators filed a DCF report. While it appears as though this happened after work hours on Friday evening, the Human Resource Director contacted the employee and arranged an investigatory meeting with her. Shortly after final arrangements were made for the investigatory meeting, the employee rendered her resignation effective immediately. The language the employee used in the video is in conflict with the values of the Hamden Public School System. Someone who will use that sort of language in any setting, whether public or private, is not someone we want anywhere near our children. The employee is separated from service, and we hope that her children will receive the support they need after witnessing such a traumatic event.”
