Then she posted a second Facebook Live video to update her viewers on how the chat with the manager went.
“I’m happy to report that the manager with whom I spoke immediately apologized because I had a list of items to review with him, including being called ‘sweetheart’ …” Judd said, adding that the manager apologized and said “touching someone is totally inappropriate” and that he’d have a conversation with the worker.
She added that the manager told Judd something along the lines of, “Just because 99 people don’t speak up doesn’t mean it’s OK.”
Judd’s follow-up Facebook Live video — which has been viewed 444,000 times since she posted it Saturday — got its share of positive comments among the 11,000 posted. But the following women didn’t agree with Judd’s stance.
“I’m a 54 year old married woman from Texas. And I would be flattered if I was called sweetheart. I was raised to see that as a form of respect. Proud to be a Texan!” Shanna Horton McGee wrote.
“‘Sweetheart’ is a kind and endearing word,” Allison Simmons added. “Funny how being kind is now politically incorrect! Do liberals just sit around all day and think up reasons to be offended? There are much bigger problems in the world Ashley.”
“What a horrendous attempt to stay relevant, threatening someone’s livelihood,” Ashley Marie MacGeogheagan noted. “Do you know what women are being beaten to death and having acid thrown on them? Get over yourself, SWEETHEART.”
“You tried to get a working man fired for calling you sweetheart,” Charlene Sloan Colgan said. “He probably makes $12 an hour and has to support his family. You are the epitome of an entitled elitist and you are not doing women any favors.”
Judd seems to have been drawing more ire than admiration of late.
A week before the inauguration of Republican President Donald Trump, Judd made headlines for her declaration that she was “fighting white privilege” by targeting emjois on social media.
The day after Trump took office, Judd delivered her widely lampooned “I am a nasty woman” speech at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., declaring “I didn’t know devils could be resurrected, but I feel Hitler in these streets!”
In March she said a man who indicated his support for Trump took a photo of her at a basketball game, which Judd said left her “very sad” and “scared.” And later that month Judd hopped on Twitter and asked, “Are equal rights in the Constitution?”
