The woman stood behind Toles while he opened the door to his apartment and even then, he had to dismiss her again.

Toles recorded the incident on his cellphone and posted footage of the incident on Facebook.

The videos show the woman demanding proof that Toles lives in the apartment building.

In the viral video, Toles can be heard telling the woman, "You are blocking me into my building". This is my building as well.

"You're blocking me [from entering]", Toles said.

She refuses to move and says she feels "uncomfortable" by his presence.

She proceeded to tell Toles how he was making her uncomfortable, before following him right to the front door of his own block.

St. Louis, Missouri, resident D'Arreion Toles was just trying to get home and relax after pulling a late night at the office on Friday when a neighbor of his made a decision to become a human roadblock, preventing him from entering his apartment complex.

"If you want to come in my building." she begins.

Last week, Pradhan said two state-owned oil refiners have booked import of 1.25 million tonne (MT) of crude oil from Iran in November.

"I was kind of blown away, shocked and like wow", Toles told the local news station. I wish her the best.

D'Arreion Nuriyah Toles was making his way home when he was halted by a white woman standing in the lobby's entrance.

In a Brooklyn deli last week, a white woman called police after claiming that a young black boy touched her behind.

The videos posted to Toles' personal Facebook page were viewed more than 2 million times by Sunday afternoon after being posted overnight Saturday.

While the apartment unit is not owned by Tribeca-STL, the company got wind of the video and released this statement saying they've severed ties with the woman.

The Tribeca-STL family is a minority-owned company that consists of employees and residents from many racial backgrounds. "We are proud of this fact and do not and never will stand for racism or racial profiling at our company", said Tribeca-STL.

The woman was sacked from her job and her former workplace released a statement saying that she had been "terminated" from the company, reported local outlet KMOV4.

Toles doesn't want people to "bash the woman", but instead send her positive energy. "I am not upset with her". Toles told KMOV, "I am not mad at her. I would still have a conversation with her, a presentable conversation with her".

Toles added that he's concerned this seems to be "something that is recurring in America".
