This wasn't enough for the woman, however, and she proceeded to follow Toles all the way up to his apartment, where she watched him use his keys to open up the door. "The video is showing the employee in her private life at her own residence interacting with another person". "Have a nice night, and my name is Mr. Toles".

"Okay, I don't like the fact that you are blocking me from where I pay to live", he responded.

"I am uncomfortable", the woman told him.

The man refuses to offer her proof, saying, "You are blocking me into my building".

D'Arreion Nuriyah Toles posted several videos of his exchange with the woman to Facebook around 1 a.m. Saturday.

"If you do [live here], I would like to meet you because you're a neighbor", the woman tells Toles, who then stresses he has no interest.

The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds.

"The video did involve one of our employees, but the event did NOT take place at Tribeca-STL and did NOT involve one of our tenants", the company said. After reviewing the video Toles posted, the company released a statement saying she was sacked, and that it will "never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company". The news station reportedly reached out to the woman to comment, but she didn't respond.

"Yes, and I have already buzzed", he says.

"All I am asking is what unit", she counters. "You pay rent", Toles said.

After some back and forth Toles eventually maneuvers past the woman into the loft building, and the woman follows him into the elevator and up to his loft on the fourth floor.

"I was kind of blown away, shocked and like wow", he told KMOV. "I'm just glad I had my camera out because if I didn't have my camera out, I feel that it could have went a totally different way". "Let her live her life", he said. I am not going to go after her legally or anything like that. At the time of writing, the Facebook post has been shared more than 100,000 times.

"I am not mad at her".

"Have a good night, ma'am", he told the woman as he closed the door to his apartment. I am not upset with her. "I would still have a conversation with her, a presentable conversation with her".
