A man wearing a “Running the World Since 1776″ t-shirt was caught on video throwing a temper-tantrum inside a Fort Myers, Florida, Costco store after an elderly woman asked him to wear a mask.
The incident is said to have taken place on June 27 but has just recently gone viral.
“Stay six feet away from me,” says the elderly woman.
“You’re harassing me and my family,” the man says.
“You’re harassing me. I feel threatened,” the man screams at another man who had reportedly come to defend the elderly woman.
“Back off! Threaten me again. Back the f**k up put your f**king phone down,” he yelled.
This occurred at the Gulf Coast Town Center location on 6/27 and one of the customers targeted said: "To give Costco the credit, they escorted him out and made me wait inside and monitored him until he left and then they send someone with me to the care to make sure I'm okay."

One of the customers targeted by the man later thanked Costco for their handling of the incident: “To give Costco the credit, they escorted him out and made me wait inside and monitored him until he left and then they send someone with me to the car to make sure I’m okay.”
