@thejauntyjester Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We are taking this very seriously and are currently investigating the situation

— GameStop (@GameStop, Inc.)

9. Gamestop’s Facebook users aren’t happy about it either.

11. Messageboards like Reddit and GameFAQs are quoting a YouTube commenter who claims the woman in the video was fired after the incident.

I work for GS in the LA area. I am happy to report to all of you that this bitch has been fired as of today. She was a cunt to work for, and trust me when I say that we are all happy that she is gone. Also, she has done worse than just this. Just last year she was under investigation for fudging the numbers in her books because money and games were coming up missing. She talked her way out of it and pegged it on an innocent girl who just killed herself this past May. Burn in hell Chrys.

12. Gamestop’s official comment concerning the video is that they are currently investigating:

We are aware of this incident and are currently investigating the situation. We regret that this happened, as we strive to ensure all customers receive a great experience when visiting our stores. We would like to extend an apology to the affected customer as well as any other customer that was offended by this event.
