Viral video shows woman blocking man from his apartment

D'Arreion Toles

A white woman who refused to allow a black neighbor into their downtown St. Louis apartment building because he wouldn't show her proof that he lived there has been fired.

"Ma'am you are not security". The woman stood behind Toles while he opened the door to his apartment and even then, he had to dismiss her again. "I live here and you are blocking the door".

The footage, which has been viewed over 6 million times as of Monday, shows the woman getting into the elevator with Toles and following him all the way to his apartment door in the Elder Shirt Lofts, asking for his name.

The incident went on for about three minutes until the woman realized Toles might actually live there.

Below is a copy of the full statement by Tribeca-STL, who announced the firing of the woman in the video. "If you wanna come into my building...you walked up on a street...can you show me the key code into this building?" The woman doesn't have a listed phone number. "I would still have a conversation with her". Toles said he believes he was stopped simply because he's Black.

The interaction included the woman telling the man that she is uncomfortable and repeatedly demanding that he disclose the unit in which he lives. "I wish her the best", he said.

"After a review of the matter, the employee has been terminated and is no longer with our company", it added.

Toles told KMOV.com that no citations were issued as a result of the call.

Toles posted videos of the episode on his Facebook page Saturday and they quickly spread on social media, where the then-unidentified woman was derisively referred to as "Apartment Patty". "If I did not have my camera out, I feel it could have gone a totally different way".

"The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds", it said. I am not upset with her. "I would like to know whose friends, and why you are here", Mueller says when Toles asks why she is following her. After reviewing the video Toles posted, the company released a statement saying she was sacked, and that it will "never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company". "I am just glad I had my camera out".
