Georgia state representative, Erica Thomas, tweeted that a white man verbally assaulted her in a grocery store by saying she was “a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from.” She later lamented in a Facebook video that “People are getting really out of control with this white privilege stuff.” The accused man, Eric Sparkes, an immigrant from Cuba who hates Trump and votes Democrat, showed up at her press conference to challenge her story. He denied telling her to go back where she came from and said that the argument started over her using the express lane while having too many items. He accused her of “playing the victim for political purposes because she is a state legislator.” She has since backpedaled  her story.

Georgia State Rep. and Minority Leader Erica Thomas (D) took to Twitter on Saturday, saying a white man called her “a lazy SOB” and that she needed to go back to where she came from because she had too many items in the express lane at the local Publix.

Thomas explained her experiences further in a Facebook live video.

“People are getting really out of control with this white privilege stuff,” a crying Thomas said in the video. “I’m at the grocery store and I’m in the 10 aisle, the aisle that says ’10 items or less.’ Yes, I have 15 items but I’m nine months pregnant and I can’t stand up for long.”

“This white man comes up to me and says, ‘You lazy son of b**ch. You need to go back where you came from. And I said, ‘Sir, you don’t even know me. I’m not lazy. I’m nine months pregnant. He says, ‘You’re ignorant,'” Thomas explained. 

To make things even more interesting, the man Thomas accused of making the comments, Eric Sparkes, showed up at her press conference to challenge her story.
