Apartment Patty, legally known as Hilary Brooke Mueller, was put through the ringer and fired from her job after she was captured on video denying a Black man entry into the condominium where he was paying to live.
However Mueller, who Fox2Now identifies as Hilary Thornton, defended her actions, saying that everyone doesn’t know the full story.
According to Miss Patty, the black man in question, D’Arreion Toles, did not have a key fob to get in and forced his way into the building.
“When I noticed an individual that I did not know here, my only thought was to follow directions I had been given by condo association board members repeatedly; and that’s to never allow access to anyone that you don’t know,” she insisted.
“I simply asked if he lived there because the direction from the association is … that if you don’t know the person, you don’t let them in,” she added.
Thornton said that she told him that she could not let him in, then asked if he had a key fob to prove that he was a resident. Something that Toles declined to do.
If he had a fob, she said, he could have used it to gain entry into the building and would not have needed her to let him into the door.
Thornton insists that Toles forced his way past her, although that wasn’t caught on camera.
“…Because the camera was pointed at the ground and that’s when you hear me say, ‘Oh my God, are you serious?’ and that’s when he says, ‘Go ahead, call police,’” she said.
So that was when little Miss Patty decided to follow Toles all the way to his front door, up until she realized he had keys to get into his unit. Thornton was fired from her employer, Tribeca STL for her discriminatory acts, and now she claims that she is being subjected to death threats and being called a racist, something which she hates.
“That’s false and heartbreaking,” she said. “Those are words that cut deep.”
Lynn Schlosser, who lives in the complex defended Thornton’s actions, noting that she was mugged about a year ago near the same building’s front door.
“I do it all the time,” she said. “The UPS man and Fed Ex [guy] stand there and try to get in, I say I can’t [let them in].”
