At 10:30 a.m., as she was shopping with her 3-year-old twins, audio of a pornographic video started playing on the store's intercom.

According to the description of the video she uploaded to YouTube, the audio went on for five minutes.

In her Instagram comments, she said Target employees were scampering around the store trying to stop the broadcast. She also mentioned that it made for an awkward moment when her twins asked, "Is she hurt?"

The Instagram video has since been removed.

People were clearly upset. This Twitter user complained that the ordeal went on for 15 minutes.

@Target What was up with the sexual and racist rants on the loudspeaker at Target Westgate in San Jose? 15 minutes and staff did nothing.

It's not the first time shocking audio has been broadcast at the retailer. A similar incident involving pornographic audio took place at a Target in San Luis Obispo, California, earlier this year, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

A Target spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times that the latest in-store incident is being investigated by the company.
