Is This Black Friday Brawl for Real?

(UPDATE) What Happens After a Woman Snatches a Black Friday Sale From This Kid Has Her Screaming: ‘You’re Scaring Me!’.

Update: Fact-checking website Snopes has said that the video featuring a woman snatching a vegetable steamer from a child was “probably staged,” though no one has stepped up to explain the details behind it. That woman then finds herself the subject of another woman’s rage — possibly the mother of the child — who tries to pry the steamer out of her hands as she screams, “Why are you being so aggressive?! Too many of us have been transformed into consumerist zombies who mindlessly chase after our uncontrollable desire for poorly made products that will be tossed aside in only a few days. We have been trained, as a nation, to immediately change our day of thanks into a day of greed and consumerism that rivals football players diving after a fumbled ball.

Are our prayers of thanks as cheaply manufactured as the vegetable steamer in this video such that we can toss it away within 24hours like we will throw away many of the gifts purchased today? What I do know, however, is that this mindless consumerism is exactly what companies who make cheap products with the aid of cheap, overseas labor require to keep us purchasing throughout the holiday season.
