‘You can smash it, smash it, please smash it,’ Korinn responds.
He then adds: ‘Don’t play with me.’

Shortly after, one of the customers can be heard calling the worker ‘hood,’ to which she replies, ‘Yeah, I’m real hood,’ adding that she was from New Orleans.

According to Korinn, the altercation occurred at 9:45 p.m., just 15 minutes before the park was set to close.
She revealed that while on her way out of the park, she was stopped by another family. Because she was already helping one family, she agreed to help the other when she was done.
When one of the second family’s children began grabbing items from the cart, Korinn asked her to please put it away by referring to her as ‘my friend.’
However, the family accused the worker of snatching the toy from their kid.
