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

The video’s author posted it on YouTube with the description: “Im posting anonymous because I don want 2b fired, but I work at this store in saginaw and this lady stole a veggie steamer from a KID on black friday!

Shame.” The author did not specify what state Saginaw is in — there are at least 11 cities bearing that name in the country — or the store’s name, though some websites speculated that it was a Wal-Mart store. The annual tradition of sitting in front of a computer after Thanksgiving to feel smugly superior to all the people who stood in line for hours to get that special sale on televisions—and vegetable steamers, apparently—has arrived.

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?! Jeff DeHaven, digital marketing director for Blue Thumb Digital and president of Great Lakes Bay Social Media Club, said Saginaw is getting attention regardless of whether the video is real or staged. While some of the online discussion showed viewers who said they were appalled that an adult would take merchandise from a child, others couldn’t grasp the idea that customers would topple over each other for a vegetable steamer. Shame.” The video, which circulated widely on Friday morning, was said to likely be staged by fact-checking website Snopes, though that has not yet been confirmed.

Some, including Snopes.com, are calling the video fake and/or staged, pointing out that a woman and child in the video can be seen already standing in the store holding vegetable steamer boxes before the crowd swooped in and began clearing them from a pallet. At a mall in Louisville, Kentucky on Thanksgiving night, shoppers punched each other—and knocked a woman to the floor—as they fought in a packed food court.
