The more you watch, the more fake it looks!
People don't fight over vegetable steamers, they fight over video games, toys, and electronics, and if you view the video, there are two sitting right at her feet that she practically stumbles over.
I'm with the Redditor below, this smells of a Jimmy Kimmel video prank...remember the olympic athlete/wolf and the twerking incident? I guess we'll find out tonight or Monday.
From Daily Mail:
Footage has emerged of a desperate Black Friday sales customer callously ripping a vegetable steamer from the hands of a small child.
The video was uploaded to YouTube with the caption: ‘I’m posting anonymous because I don’t 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 video, which appeared on Thursday, shows the doors of a store open and dozens of shoppers rush in.
They immediately throw themselves into a pile of vegetable steamers in front of them, desperately grabbing as many as they can.
A small child standing to the right with a woman is then targeted by a shopper in a red coat, who grabs a boxed-up steamer out of the child’s arms.
The woman with the child then tussles with the woman in the red coat, who shouts: ‘Why are you being so oppressive, you’re scaring me.’
It’s seemingly a shocking scene. But is all it seems?
Dozens of internet users have claimed that the video is staged.
YouTube user ‘spaceye’ pointed out that the woman with the child are already in the store when the doors open – boxes in hand.
The commenter also questions whey the ‘thief’ would grab a box from the child when there are plenty next to her, unclaimed.
A Reddit thread on the video has drawn the same conclusion, with some suspecting that comedian Jimmy Kimmel is behind the video.
User omgstfubbq wrote: ‘You're not getting me this time Jimmy Kimmel. This is definitely staged.’
Another, MasterThalpian, said that there was a lack of ambient noise.
He said: ‘What was with the beginning? Didn't a child just dive into the pile? Seemed strange. But I'm going to agree. Seemed too staged. Hardly any other noise going on. Nobody else seemed to be talking anywhere.’
He also said that there was a strange lack of comment from the camera operator on the seemingly mean act.
But perhaps the best evidence that the video was staged was offered by Cromus, who said: ‘They're fighting over a vegetable steamer.
‘Let that sink in for a minute.’
