Angry Woman In Walmart Throws A Fit Over Man Using Food Stamps

“You’re not providing for [your family], I am."

Video posted on YouTube shows a woman at a Walmart store loudly berating a man who was paying for his groceries with food stamps.

As a child sits in the man's shopping cart looking on, the woman complains about how she is paying for his food with her tax money.

NOTE: The description below, and video above, contains strong language.

"You know, I put in 50-60 hour weeks... trying to provide for my family," the man says, although some of his words are unclear.

"You’re not providing for it, I am," the woman snaps back. "The government is."

"You're not," the man says.

"They take it out of my check," the woman says. "Bullshit they don’t."

The man suggests she complain to her lawmaker or vote Republican.

"Oh, trust me, I am not a bleeding heart fucking liberal," the woman answers.

The rest of the clip contains a similar back-and-forth, punctuated with expletives. Both appear to be shopping with children.

"Deal with it, bitch," the man says at one point.

At another point, the woman claims the man must be a supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

"That's exactly what you vote for, they give it to you so that you vote that way," the woman says. "I'm not stupid. I have a degree. I'm pretty damn smart."

The footage picks up mid-argument. It's not clear when or where it was filmed, or even if it was staged, as it was in a viral incident that took place in a Walmart parking lot late last year.

However, this argument has been going viral since being posted on YouTube last week, with more than 130,000 views to date, and there have been a number of reports of other shoppers being confronted in stores over their use of food stamps.

Ironically, the woman in the new video who is complaining about food stamps is shopping at Walmart -- a retail chain where wages are so low that many workers qualify for public assistance.

A 2014 report found that Walmart costs U.S. taxpayers $6.2 billion per year in food stamps, Medicaid, subsidized housing and other forms of public assistance for its employees.

Much of that money eventually goes to the company: A 2013 report found nearly $1 out of every $5 in food stamp money is spent at Walmart.
