LAKEWOOD (VINnews) — Two Lakewood men were the target of an anti-semitic attack while minding their own business and walking to Shul on Shabbos.
Video footage shows men driving a snow plow on a Lakewood street, while two Jewish men are walking ahead of them on the street. As the drivers pass by the men, they intentionally lower the plow, causing the men to be accosted with a storm of snow and ice.
The men then laugh diabolically and drive away.
The men in the vehicle were allegedly Donny Klarmann and Brandon Ebbs. The footage was originally uploaded to Facebook by Klarmann himself. Klarmann’s facebook page identifies him as an employee of Waste Management, which would be the reason for him driving a snow plow. Ebbs’ employment status is unknown.
UPDATE: Waste Management has released a statement condemning the behavior, and also revealed that the driver has been suspended from his job.
The full statement reads as follows:
“We are aware of an incident that was posted by an off-duty WM employee to his personal social media account. The hateful conduct depicted in this video is unacceptable and does not reflect the values of inclusion and diversity we hold as a company.”
“The employee is suspended while we investigate the incident, but we can confirm this behavior will not be tolerated from any WM employee and we will not employ those who act in this way.”
