The latest example of this new racist viral trend took place in a Target store located in Tennessee where according to INDY100, Lena Jones and her friends were harassed by a white woman for…wait for it…talking about Earth Kitt’s legendary character in the Eddie Murphy film Boomerang.

Prior to being told they “don’t belong here” for “talking about sex in public”, Lena and company were shopping for hats and made reference to the fact that they didn’t want to be seen wearing a certain hat for fear that people might make the comparison to Eartha Kitt.

Lena documented the encounter on social media:

Secondly, of course the woman didn’t know anything about the references to Boomerang. Thirdly, even if they were talking about sex in public, so what?!
