What Would You Do: Drug store employee denies Muslim man passport photo


Great. Thank you, mam. Have a seat I’ll call you when your pictures are ready. Thanks next Hi, I just take a seat Sorry, this is for US passports.Im a citizen okay I Think you should leave, I feel really uncomfortable Putting one up saying with real Americans You’re planning a trip abroad and you’ve come here to take that all-important passport picture in front of you is a man Who’s being denied that service simply because he’s Muslim? Do you come to his rescue support the employees decision not to provide him service or just stay out of the picture? What would you do? Excuse me As an American I feel like it’s my responsibility to stop you before anything happens Our hidden cameras are rolling at Wayne Pharmacy and Wayne, New Jersey this first customer walks in smile Okay, great. So just have a seat as he waits for his photo. Who’s next I have to have my photo taken, are you a US citizen? Yes, I was born here. I don’t feel comfortable taking your picture. You just took his picture right, but he looks American Do I? Look at you. You look great. You’re you you’re wearing your your cap. You’re profiling me No, I’m not racist. I just feel uncomfortable Once Fahim storms away, I would never forgive myself if I took a picture I guess he’s not a happy camper He tells Michelle there was an easy way to confirm Fahim citizenship It turns out he understands all about something happening his wife had a close call on 911 So you understand you I know are you coming from? idea Alright, we’ll break it either, sir We’ve heard you say about your wife missing them. Yes, we were so lucky I thank God every day so you understand when people feel that way if that woman did I could understand her point of view I don’t think somebody showing up here with a prayer cap should be denied a photo for a passport If It’s really a problem. You say give me Id It’s just a photo and showing identification is not required yet throughout the day many customers felt it was necessary for Fahim to Present Id Proving his us citizenship. You don’t look American to me, and I know I watched the news. I know what’s happening, okay? He doesn’t have to show me id but I felt more comfortable he did Are you with me? And he’s Muslim? Well, he said he had a driver’s license You know she has no right to question him at all because well That’s why I said you know what what does him being muslim have to do with you taking the photo you think it’s fair no It’s not he wasn’t doing anything wrong. Well. He didn’t show her any proof either. No one else has to show proof sure What’s also true? Is that lots of people found reasons? Why Fahim? warranted extra scrutiny You’re making people upset. It’s probably just better if you leave Including a facial characteristic. We hadn’t really noticed Did he make you nervous? Do you think I did the wrong thing? You thought he was suspicious too – yes. Yeah, what troubles you well if he’d gotten on a plane and Something happened. It wouldn’t be good. You’re not saying all muslims. Oh no. No no, but he obviously Didn’t want to show her proof of citizenship. I don’t feel safe around them I Am not prejudiced at all, but that’s your opinion But some customers make it clear they disagree with Michele’s refusal to take by Fahim passport photo I’m a little uncomfortable because I don’t want to be responsible if something happens I’m not sure what you mean look. I mean honestly you’re making these people uncomfortable I No but come on, come on what you’re profiling someone that you don’t even know But look at him. He looks like a human being to me Why are you defending him? because He needs a passport. It’s your job to take a picture you have to take a picture the man didn’t do anything You don’t think it’s better to be safe than sorry it’s not your job. You’re blowing it all out of proportion My Gosh and for the first time all day a customer reaches out to comfort Fahim and She is not the only one to deliver that message so because I’m muslim you say you can’t take my photo. You’re Muslim You’re not American before Michelle can finish her thoughts marty Mciver calmly takes Fahim aside to reassure him people like He tries to quietly educate Michele Excuse me sir can you Stop bothering this man Okay, I’m just talking about what we’re just like it. Just makes me uncomfortable I get it You’re just taking the photos or the whole passport Then this 21 year old tells Michelle. He would gladly do her job I’ll take the picture, I just I can’t do it. I can’t do it. I’m washing my hands of this With Michelle out of the picture he works with Fahim to set up the shop. Can you see me? As he snaps away, we slowly approach It Bothered you right yeah, yeah, it definitely did I didn’t want to cause a scene or anything, but if he needs passport picture You know I’m going to help him out what were you trying to tell her by doing that that? You know what you know what be like afraid just by how someone looks you got to treat everybody the same because more likely They’re not they’re just like you so at the end of the day our actor fahim hameed is Disheartened to see so many people agree with Michelle, but customers like marty give him Hope you know he’s a total stranger. He has no reason to do that, so I appreciate it I just want to make sure that wasn’t happening in my bright

  1. Hey WWYD , why don’t you do a show showing the discrimination against Christians????

    Is that because it’s not part of your agenda?????

  2. Are you fucking serious most of the goddamn people agree with her or make up shitty ass excuses to agree with her

  3. it hurts alot but it our own people who don't know the islam have done this to us.its not this people. this people just afraid of their life and love one's.i don't blame those people who judge us and hate us. I blame my own people who lost their path. And don't know the true path of islam.all i want to say is every muslim is not bad as they shown on media.

  4. “Americans.” There’s No Americans or any shit. We should all be treated equally and So what if he’s a Muslim? Did he fucking do something to begin with?

  5. Fucking hell idiots like the ppl who defended her r the reason the world can't move on how tf r we going to tackle issues as a race if we can't accept each other fuck

  6. bro what the hell does an “american” look like at this point, why did so many people defend the woman for not showing “ID” he doesn’t need to..

  7. I hope the on this episode are looking at this comment. You are all racist pieces of shit. Especially the lady in the blue/purple shirt. Fuck you

  8. Why don't you do a vedio in front of a Muslim saying Allah's and Mohammed are fakes and he was a war monger.
    Try this in Muslims dominate area in the US near a mosque only if you have the balls.
    I am sure that you will definitely be able to make a vedio in front of a church saying Jesus is a fake.
    Anyway good vedio ,I could laugh and pass some time.

  9. It is amazing to know that in USA one MUST show an ID to take passport photos!!!!!! or is it? It is also amazing that one MUST be american to have his passport photos taken!!!! Do Americans go abroad to see other nations??? I guess not.

  10. America is a country not a religion so lady you can't take deny just because of his religion if he has an American passport he is American well proof but what the hell that lady is making piss
    I am Muslim too

  11. The election of Trump shows that majority of common Yankees are RACIST NARCISSISTIC BIGOTS as is evident from this episode

  12. “You thought he was suspicious? YeS.”

    “If ThAt MuSlIm HaD gOtTeN oN a PlAnE, & sOmEtHiN’ hApPeNed, It WoUldN’t Be GoOd.

    “I dOn’t FeEl SaFe ArOuNd MuSlImS…”

    “… I aM nOt PrEjUdIcE at ALL, bUt I tHiNk ShE dId ThE rIgHt ThInG.”

  13. I would say:"well i do look american but i am also mexican my parents are but it could be that his parents or grandparents or i don't know his still american so you can just shut up and zip it!

  14. Before u even think of being racist remember America was built upon a native indian grave yard. A massive terroist operation of massacre took place.

  15. Every white American's thought process is that, their ancestors fought the British and built America! But the actual reality is that Loyalist who where were loyal to the crown were the biggest hindrance to the Revolutionary war against British! You can check any history books, very few white American's, with the help of Africans did all the dirty work and were determined to get a independent nation! As soon as we got a separate nation , every white person wants the piece of the pie, claiming their ancestors built America! 😂

  16. That's so out of line on so many levels.Learn how to keep your remarks to yourself. Just learn how to stfu. Racist fucking bitch

  17. Why are there so many racist grabbing desperately at straws to make him sound like a suspicious person, the generalization is disgusting.

  18. I don't get why it's a big thing, one said they don't like them "people"- its a guy. Why do people have to be Muslim to make people uncomfortable

  19. It really disappoint me that many of them agree with the photographer . Sorry but in european country islamphobia is a big problem. but it is shameful . 😢😢😢

  20. First of all Muslims doesn’t wear a white hat in public at all
    Unless they want to but it’s not a must in Muslims religion

  21. I like how those people acted like the Department of State is going to accept a pharmacy's photo as verification of citizenship or something.

  22. Wait where was this filmed? I wanna make sure my daughter of a German immigrant self dosent ever dare go near that place… Especially with my Muslim husband 😳 and please let's not even talk about the scar on my face… So yeah I'm pretty sure I would be publicly stoned as soon as I crossed in the border of that place🤣🤣🤣 but 😭😭 "I'm not prejudice at all" 💀

  23. 9-11?

    The day our government attacked us in a false flag attack in order to invade the Middle East.

    Yea, we will never forget that building seven collapsed for no reason and the other two towers were purposefully demolished.

  24. "I'm not prejudiced at all!" – says the lady that judged a person based on their appearance alone.

    Fuck these people

  25. Absolute bullshit!!! If we keep doing this kind of thing, we'll become a hated nation. I'm not even in the US, but feel that US citizens need to look at what their government is up to instead of being racist…

  26. One has to be prudent when it comes to people who adhere to an ideology that promotes obscurantism, murder, forced conversion, vandalism… I am never comfortable when near Muslims. Ex-Muslims are fine and I have a few as friends, but Muslims are people I do not miggle with.

  27. To be honest the muslims cant be shocked with the response they get, i mean their track record isn't so positive and regardless of what people think most feel the way that lady did, even if they don't have the balls to admit it..everybody is entitled to feel safe and have their opinion, whether some think it's right or wrong isn't the issue.. both sides of the fence are the same…who's to say whats right or wrong? Because it's not your opinion doesn't make it wrong.
