The Dunkin’ Donuts rant filmmaker who unwittingly set herself up for one of the internet’s most brilliantly spectacular comeuppances saw her plan to embarrass a counter worker backfire, and now that the woman has achieved viral fame, reports have emerged that she tried and failed to reach modeling success.
The Dunkin’ Donuts rant recorded by Florida resident Taylor Chapman appears to have been an attempt to invite scorn and criticism toward a worker at a location for the store for failing to provide her with a receipt.
But the aftermath has overwhelmingly favored the poor Dunkin’ worker subjected to her bizarre overreaction, with racist abuse hurled at the employees and the clear discomfort of other patrons serving to make Chapman look even less sympathetic to viral video watchers.
One oft cited part of Chapman’s Dunkin’ Donuts rant involved this racially horrible gem:
“So I hope you’re happy with your little f***ing sand n****r self, cause I’m about to nuke your whole f***ing planet from Mars. You think ya’ll are tough big fat Arabs bombin’ the Trade Center? I’ll show you tough.”
While Chapman apparently expected support, it seems in the Dunkin’ Donuts rant saga, the customer is not only right — and even Dunkin’ agrees.
Earlier today, The Inquisitr reported that the chain’s official Twitter feed confirmed that the 18-year-old employee seen as unfailingly polite in the clip will be honored by the company, an unusually strong show of support by a brand in a customer dispute.

As for Chapman’s motivations? No one knows precisely why she was so enraged, but RadarOnline went digging, and reports she was “into modeling and shooting promo videos shortly after moving to south Florida.”
One such venture involved a promo with rapper Ludacris, and the site says:
“Far from her bombastic Dunkin’ Donuts performance, Chapman is reserved and at times barely understandable. And she does not call Ludacris the ‘n’ word or tell him he’s ‘under video surveillance.’ … She does try to flirt with him, however, in an uncomfortable way.”
Following her viral Dunkin’ Donuts rant fame, Chapman has shied away from the public eye and has not addressed any claims as to her previous career — clip below of the Ludacris spot.
