The software company where she was employed confirmed she is no longer working there after the controversial incident.

What are the details?

A woman got fired from her job after she harassed a mother and her child who were shopping in Lincoln, Nebraska. The encounter took place at a Super Saver grocery store and the woman without a mask who approached them was later identified as Janene Hoskovec, according to Insider.

The woman claimed that it was her allergies that caused her to cough, but her behavior was highly questionable.

“Look at you, guys. You're so cute,” she said in the video while calling the mother and her child “sheep” for choosing to act according to the mask mandate in the state.

The mother did her best to continue her shopping and ignore the woman, but Hoskovec refused to leave them alone and followed them around the grocery store.

“I told her she needs to keep her distance and that her coughing on me was assault. She laughed and kept saying 'Look at you, it's so cute how scared you are!’” the mother wrote on social media.

Hoskovec was listed on LinkedIn as a client partner at the Arizona branch of the software company SAP.

“The health and safety of our employees and the communities in which we live, and work are of utmost concern to us. We are taking the matter of an SAP employee incident very seriously and investigating the situation,” the company stated for the outlet.

In a follow-up on social media, the company confirmed that “the individual in question no longer works for SAP” because of the disturbing incident.
