Child and Mother Hit with Verbal and Physical Abuse

Tempers flared in line at Target in the final days before Christmas and the target appeared to be a two-year -old child and her Filipina American mom.

Lisa Factora-Borchers, who is the editorial director at Bitch Media, tweeted about the incident.

Factora-Bordehrs sent out her tweet Saturday and it has since been retweeted more than 5,000 times and liked nearly 10,000 times.

Parents are naturally protective of their children, so hats off to Lisa for standing up to the Scrooge

For Lisa, the incident was reflective of a larger societal problem.


To compound matters, people stood by and watched. Not even a word of sympathy from any of the shoppers or employees around her.

Lisa then turned to what she does best, the written word to share her feelings, vent her frustrations, but also turn the incident into a teaching moment.

It worked. Several responded with tweets of understanding, compassion and support.
