The Queens woman caught on camera hurling racist insults at the Essex Market on Sunday has been banned from both the Davidovich Bakery and the market.

Meanwhile, the cashier on the receiving end of the comments – 30-year-old Vic Kamara – spoke out about the incident. Saying he was simply enforcing the Market’s mandatory mask policy on-premise.

Queens mother Stephanie Denaro had refused to wear a face covering while shopping at Davidovich Bakery inside Essex Market on Sunday. When confronted, she responded with racial slurs, as her young children stood by her side.

Denaro told CBS News that her kids have a Black father who uses the N-word “colloquially,” and maintains masks infringe on her constitutional rights.

In the wake of the comments, both Davidovich Bakery and the Essex Market banned Denaro. Security guards were also reportedly alerted to be on the lookout for her.
