Community leaders in Louisville are condemning a racist rant by a shopper at a department store.

The expletive-laced tirade was captured by another shopper inside JCPenney's at Jefferson Mall Tuesday. The video shows a white woman berating two Hispanic women at a register alleging that one of them cut the line. She tells one of them to "go back to wherever you come from" and speak English. She also calls the woman a "nobody" and tells her that taxpayers probably paid for her items because she's on welfare.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer released a statement apologizing to the women and saying he was "sad and disappointed to see conduct like this."

JCPenney's corporate office has also released a statement condemning the rant.
