DJ Kid Capri Films Racist Encounter While Shopping At Gas Station
DJ Kid Capri (real name David Love Jr.), 52, shared his encounter with a woman who worked behind the counter of a local Auburn, Alabama gas station. In his video Capri shared on Saturday (Nov. 9th), he says after he entered the convenience store called Store 17, a white woman behind the counter immediately yelled for him to remove his hoodie. In response to his accusations, the woman picks up a phone to call for the authorities. Capri writes,
“Racist!! Wow wow wow!!!! This happened to me yesterday in auburn alabama at a gas station store called “STORE 17” it’s sad, but I’m glad it happened, cause she f**ked up!! She has no idea who I am, but she’s gonna know now. She ran into the wrong one, with her racist azz face!!!!! I’m on it!!!”

Capri said he felt totally disrespected which prompted the “Growing Up Hip-Hop,” reality star to begin filming the incident. After using his cellphone to record their encounter, the woman says to Capri,
“That’s not necessary.”
Afterwards, Capri responds:
“If anyone else would have came into this store with a hood that was white, you wouldn’t have did that to.”
Soon after sharing his encounter, Capri shared a second video giving a little more insight on what happened during his trip inside the convenience store. Capri goes on to say in the clip that there weren’t any warnings or signs that bring attention to customers who wear hood inside the store.

The truth is, It doesn’t matter who I am, everybody deserves respect, no matter who’s a legend, or who is a brand name, this is a perfect example of never judging a book by its cover, everybody know I wear my hoodies all the time, I like to be comfortable when traveling, in a hotel or in my house, so when she yelled that shit to me across the room, I was confused at first, but when i realized fully what she said and how she said it, that’s when I told her that was discrimination, and it went from there, first of all, this is not a church or dinner at a restaurants here it’s respectful to take off your hat or hoodie, it’s a gas station!!!! AND if you was in Auburn alabama this day, you would know how cold it was out there, So I had my hoodie up, I’m a grown ass man, she spoke to me like I was a “BOY” and she got checked for it, all and all, I’m sure the store has the full video of what happened, but I don’t need that, I have witnesses,,, including her store clerk that was there, I can tell he was uncomfortable with what she did, I could see it in his face, being a bigot is a sickness, and this stupidness been going on forever, when would it stop? , #kidcapri#
