‘Two wrongs don’t make a right’ woman seen using racial slur in video at Madison Co. Hungry Howie’s apologizes
MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) - A heated argument at a drive-thru pizza place in Madison County is now getting attention on social media.
The argument allegedly began over loud music coming from a car at Hungry Howie’s. Cell phone footage from the Saturday night argument shows a driver being called the “N” word by a resident near the restaurant.
WCTV tried to track down the woman who was called the slur, but did not hear back.
But, Shawn White, the woman who used the racial slur in the video said the customer’s music was so loud that it shook her home. She is now apologizing for her language.
The video taken by a customer at shows the part of an argument that ended with racial slurs. White approached the car after demanding that the music be turned down.
“A car pulled in and there were several cars behind it, and it was playing really loud offensive music,” described White.
White said she initially yelled from her driveway.
“The response that I got was, “”F” you, “B,”” said White.
The argument between the two women continued, with the customer saying that she was on public property and further urged White to get away from her car. Toward the end of the video, White can be heard using the “N” word while referring to the kind of music being played.
White said that despite feeling provoked, two wrongs don’t make a right.
“I apologize to the citizens of Madison for what happened, and we all need to start treating each other with respect,” said White.
WCTV asked Madison County law enforcement about noise complaints and how they should be handled.
“We don’t have an ordinance to be heard for loud noises, however, there is a state law with music coming from vehicles and the distance is 25 feet,” explained Madison Police Chief Reggie Alexander. “And yes, you can be cited for it.”
He added that there is no way to take action against someone violating this law if they are not present when law enforcement arrives.
Chief Alexander confirmed that White has made several complaints to law enforcement about loud music in the area; however, he advises against taking matters into your own hands and confronting people in an aggressive manner.
