A White man was caught on camera allegedly stealing gas from a Black woman at a gas station and has reportedly been placed on unpaid leave after the incident went viral.
Video of the incident was posted on Twitter Friday by ATL Uncensored. In it, the White man is seen fueling up a van with the word “ENTEK” posted on the side, at a QuikTrip gas station in North Druid Hills, Georgia.
The woman said she had pre-paid for her gas before the man began using her pump.
In the video, the man can be heard calling her a “Black b***h” after she confronts him and tells him she is recording.
The video went viral and sparked outrage, with many vowing to call the company ENTEK, and many more posting reviews on Google and Yelp.

The company’s president reportedly issued a statement on LinkedIn Aug. 28 saying, in part:
“We have placed this employee on unpaid leave and upon conclusion of our investigation, any person found in violation of our company policies will be dealt with very strongly to uphold our company values and amends will be made to those harmed.”
