In the video, the cameraman calls the female employee a “terrorist” who “supports damn Palestine”
In response, the worker simply smiles at the camera as she proudly points to her garment and says “here.”
A store manager then approaches the irritated customer, who then turns his attention to her and demands to know why she allowed the worker to wear the pro-Palestinian garment.
Tensions arose at an Apple store in California in Irvine when an Israeli customer spotted an employee wearing a Palestinian flag on her jeans
In response, the employee simply smiles at the camera as he proudly points to the garment and says “here.”
The man asks the manager, “Why is she wearing this flag?” Do you know what Hamas did? They beheaded babies.”
Rather than get into a political discussion, the manager simply tells him to leave the store and that security will be called if he doesn’t comply.
“We’ll call security. We don’t need you to bother her,” she says.
The man replies, “I’m not bothering anyone.”
The manager responds, “Can we help you with anything?”
“I want to know why you let them wear this?” Does she support Hamas? If not, why is she wearing this flag? Why did you let them carry this flag?’ he asks.

In the video, the customer calls the employee a “terrorist” who supports Palestine, while asking the manager why she was allowed to wear such clothes.
‘Does she support (terror group) Hamas?’ he wants to know.
The woman carrying the offensive flag then puts her hands toward the camera and tells the alleged customer to “stop yelling.”
But the customer keeps saying how Hamas “beheaded our babies.”
“That never happened,” the worker replies.
Then he sees the cameraman calling the employee a “damn idiot.”
The employee seems irritated, but sensibly walks away from the situation just as the customer calls her a ‘piece of s***’.
The manager again tells the harassing customer to leave the store.
Several people on social media were unhappy about the worker displaying the flag on their clothing
Some on X are asking for a response to Apple CEO Tim Cook’s row, pictured
“Shame on @Apple for allowing this celebration of Hamas by an Apple Store employee,” said one X user. “Why would you call it a place for the community if it is now just a political stage for your employees?”
‘Apple, do you want to be boycotted now?’ asked another. “Identify these employees and fire them.”
“I write as a Jewish customer and shareholder,” said another X user. ‘The store staff makes Jewish customers feel unsafe and are attacked. Hamas, the elected ruler of the Palestinian entity, recently kidnapped and murdered 1,800 Israelis and Americans. Please advise urgently.’
“Employees who alienate potential or current customers ultimately hurt Apple’s revenues and shareholders,” said another.
‘So Apple supports terrorism? Carrying the flag as an employee is in itself harassment. And a general statement of support from Apple that they support terrorism,” another commenter noted.
