According to records from the Wildwood Florida Police Department seen by the Villages News, Judith Ann Black, 77, was dining at a Burger King in the nearby Trailwinds Village last Friday when she confronted an employee about her unsatisfactory sandwich.
According to the News, Black was angry over the thickness of the tomato slice on her Whopper, and the Burger King employee who was unnamed in the report, tried to calm Black down — but Black threw the Whopper at the employee’s back.
Black then stormed out, but not before spouting several expletives including the N-word, calling the employee a “stupid Black b—-,” according to the police report seen by Villages News.
The outlet verified this with the manager and another worker at the Trailwinds Burger King, as well as a customer who witnessed the exchange.
Wildwood police tracked Black down and booked her at the Sumter County Detention Center, but released her later on a $2,500 bond.
According to police records seen by the News, Black admitted to being “angry” that the employee was not “fixing the issue,” and confirmed that she had thrown the Whopper at the Burger King worker.

Black is a resident of a conservative retirement community in Florida known as the “Villages” — a collection of twelve housing districts across 32 square miles, located one hour north of Orlando.
The Villages advertises itself as “America’s premier active adult retirement community,” and is home to over 115,000 residents, who call themselves “Villagers.”
