St. Louis, MO — A white woman who works as a realtor in a luxury apartment has been terminated from her job after a video of her confronting and blocking an African-American man from entering his loft went viral online. The woman said she felt “uncomfortable” so she had to demand proof that he really lives there.

D’Arreion Toles, who is 34 years old, was returning home from work late night last week when the woman kept him from entering. She blocked him until he proved to her that he lived there.

In the video uploaded on Facebook, Toles can be heard asking the woman to “please move.” But she kept questioning Toles if he lives there and what unit. She said she would not get out of the way because she felt “uncomfortable.” She even followed Toles on the way to the front door of his apartment.

“I was kind of blown away, shocked and like wow,” Toles told KMOV. “I am just glad I had my camera out. If I did not have my camera out, I feel it could have gone a totally different way.”

Toles posted the video on his Facebook account. The video has been viewed over six million times and shared more than 140,000 times now.

Toles also shared that police came to his unit after the incident that night because the woman called. But the police left without giving anyone citation.

The woman, identified as Hilary Brooke Mueller, has been fired from her job because of her behavior. Tribeca Luxury Apartments, her employer, said they were “disturbed” by the incident caught on the video. They confirmed she was their employee but the incident happened in a different apartment.

“The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds,” it said in a statement. “We are proud of this fact and do not and never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company. After a review of the matter the employee has been terminated and is no longer with our company.”

Meanwhile, Toles is not considering filing a complaint against the woman and he wishes her “the best.”

“I am not mad at her. I am not upset with her. I am not going to go after her legally or anything like that,” Toles said.
