“Nobody should be treated that way, ever,” Kamira Trent said.
Trent is now a viral sensation for her good deed.
“I mean I was disgusted. I couldn’t believe I was hearing that,” Trent said.
That’s when Trent’s instincts kicked in.
“They were scared. They didn’t know really how to react to it,” Trent said. “They both tried to walk away from her and she wouldn’t let them walk away.”
Trent does not let her finish. “No I do not. I have respect. You do not harass people,” she said.
That video got a lot of praise online.
“It is absolutely comforting to see people will stand up for other people,” Steve Levin of the Anti-defamation League said.
Levin said confronting people like Trent did can be dangerous. Still he praised Trent for her courage to do what’s right.
Trent said she has no regrets about the confrontation, and she hopes the attention this video is getting will inspire others do do the same.
“Stand up. Speak up. Don’t sit there and let it happen. It’s not OK,” Trent said.
