    A South Florida woman claims a local UPS store employee kicked her out for only speaking Spanish.

    The incident allegedly happened at a branch in Miami along Southwest 104th Street.

    Rebecca Prinstein recorded the employee asking her to leave to the store. Her husband shared the video on Facebook, which included profanity from the employee.

    What the video doesn't show are the moments leading up to the incident. However, Prinstein claims the employee was kicking her out because she only spoke Spanish.
