Riverset Apartments announced their decision to terminate Erica Walker after footage of the incident captured national attention.

Camry Porter, who shared a video of the incident on Facebook, told WMAC Action News 5 the incident was racially motivated, adding that they seemed to be the only black family at the pool.

"It was a very embarrassing and very hurtful and horrible incident," Porter told the local station. "She has a family I'm sure she has to provide for, so I'm not going to say, 'Yay. I'm glad she's gotten fired,' but I do believe she deserves some consequences after her actions."

Porter said she and her family were sitting at the pool when they noticed a woman "constantly watching us and whispering amongst her friends."

Porter then alleged that her boyfriend had his feet in the water when he was approached by the property manager who repeatedly told him to remove his socks, saying that "no socks, tshirts, hats, or things of that nature are allowed in the pool."

However, Porter said other residents at the pool were also violating the rule.

Porter said Walker then asked her and her family to leave the pool, but they refused and police were called to the scene minutes later.

The viral video is the latest in a series of widely publicized incidents captured on video.
