A navy sailor suffered humiliation at a pizzeria in the hands of a woman claiming to be the wife of an army officer. The video of the confrontation has gone viral on social media.
Facebook user Sean Nolte Jr. recounted how he was confronted by a woman on September 11, during his dinner break at a pizza place. The altercation ended with him receiving a slap on the face as he managed to maintain his professionalism.
The poster, who served as a Navy sailor, began by explaining how eventful his night had been, particularly after encountering the "Karen."
The naval officer divulged that he went to the pizza spot to eat off-base when he met his friend, whose family owned the joint. As they engaged in a conversation, a woman walked into the pizzeria and kept staring at him.
In a bid to be polite, the navy sailor smiled back. Throughout his stay, he noticed the woman walking in and out of the pizza spot, even after her order was ready.
Just as she retrieved her pizza, the woman turned to him and said, "nice smile." He thought nothing of it and simply thanked her for the sudden compliment.
The restless woman then left with her order. However, barely a minute later, she returned and addressed the staff at the top of her voice, saying:
"He's a fake by the way. My husband is in the army."
Although no one bothered with her since they already knew Nolte, he felt obliged to clarify her misconception by providing his military Identity card.
The woman insisted he was fake, proceeding to show him her dependent military ID, claiming that was how an ID should look. Figuring convincing her was a futile effort, the military man said politely:
"Tell your husband 'thank you for his service' for me, and have a nice day."
Upon hearing that, the woman stormed out of the pizza place, returning seconds later to hurl expletives at him while pointing out how much he disgusted her.
She proceeded to grab his uniform and toss his cover on the floor. Nolte did not react to any of her affronts, not even after she slapped him across the face. He explained:
"Being in uniform, I must maintain professionalism. So I stand there and proceed to wish her a nice day. Well, looks like some of our own people can't recognize authenticity when they see it."
TikTok user, @mommacleann, shared the video on the altercation, saying the embarrassing encounter happened to her husband's nephew.
The clip showed the moment the offending woman tossed the military officer's cover on the floor and slapped him. Bystanders tried cautioning the woman, threatening to call the police, and reminding her that her actions were being recorded.
At that, she made her way towards the camera, but the female videographer quickly reminded her she had no right to grab her phone or touch the naval officer's hat.
Finally, the woman left the pizzeria, but not before telling Nolte he was a disgrace to the United States. Netizens have since bashed the woman for her irrational behavior while commending Nolte for handling the situation with professionalism. One wrote on TikTok:
"Unbelievable. Let social media do its thing. Karens like her are the real disgrace to this country."
Others encouraged the navy sailor to press charges against the women as a warning to other people who felt entitled to hit people. A comment on Facebook read:
"This woman should be locked up, as she has no scruples, no sense of decency. I'm sorry for what you went through. Her husband should be so ashamed of her."
Another commenter on Facebook called out the woman's disgusting attitude while extending gratitude to Nolte for his service. The comment read:
"This is the most disgusting behavior and I am truly sorry you had to go through that. Thank you for your service, your sacrifices, and your bravery."
Most were simply left in awe of the navy officer's impressive way of dealing with the "crazy Karen." One TikToker quipped: "The restraint and incredible calm this young man displayed. Wow. We're lucky to have him represent us."
This isn't to say there are no bad eggs among service members. Back in April, a white Army non-commissioned officer made headlines for assaulting a Black man in a South Carolina neighborhood.
The officer, Jonathan Petland, ended up in jail on a charge of third-degree assault after the video of the incident went viral. However, with servicemen like Sean Nolte in the military, one could have confidence in the armed forces' ability to uphold the American Dream.
