The man who recorded the video says a security guard let the woman skip the line so she could place an order and get out.

“The bagel worker doesn’t want to serve her, so the security is like, ‘You’re not gonna get served. You’re holding the line, you should leave,'” he said. “I didn’t know she was a racist when I took out my phone.”

The woman had four children with her, including one in a stroller.
