ROWLAND HEIGHTS, Calif. – A man, angry after witnessing a woman yell at a teenage girl, opted to buy $80 worth of candy from the teen.
Andy Lizarraga posted to Facebook showing a woman standing over a young girl holding a box of candy outside of a Target store in Rowland Heights, California.
“She comes up to the little kid and is like ‘Where is your licence? Have you asked permission to be here?'” Lizarraga told KCBS. “And then the kid is like, ‘No, I’m just selling candy. I’m trying to make some money.'”
Jay Lopez spotted the altercation and jumped in to defend the girl.
“When I walked up, she was crying hysterically,” said Lopez.
He ended the argument by offering to buy all of the girl’s candy. Then, he handed it all out to fellow shoppers.
The video has been viewed over 6 million times on Lizarraga’s Facebook page. She said she has heard from the woman’s daughter asking her to take the video down.
