What Happened When My Son Wore A Pink Headband To Walmart: Eh?

Soon enough, we were done with our shop and were making our way toward the front. As we passed through the produce section, two teenage girls began giggling and one of them asked, "Is that a boy or a girl?" I smiled and said, "He's a boy." I looked on at him adoringly as they continued to giggle.

Out of nowhere a big booming voice rang out. "THAT'S a BOY?!" The man was overly large with a bushy beard and a camouflage shirt with the arms cut off. He had tattered shorts and lace-up work boots with no laces. I could smell the fug of cigarette smoke surrounding him, and there was a definite pong of beer on him.

"Yes," I said simply, still smiling.

With no notice, the man stepped forward, grabbed the [pink] headband off of Dexter's head and threw it to the bottom of our shopping cart. He then cuffed Dexter around the side of his head (not hard, but that is not the point) and said with a big laugh, "You'll thank me later, little man!"

...The guy snarled at me, looked at Dexter with disgust and said, "Your son is a f*cking fa***t." He then started sauntering out, but not before he threw over his shoulder, "He'll get shot for it one day."

This "went viral".
It has now been removed, but you can still read it here.
Vyktoriah's own blog is also now offline - she claims she was being "harassed" - ie people asked her to prove it was true.
Huffington Post's hilariously credulous interview with her - above, obvs - is still on YouTube
As blogger Haire Of The Dog details there's no evidence the incident ever took place, and the woman is a known fantasist. 
I dunno, maybe it happened - I wasn't there.
Fagburn will be fascinated to see how this one pans out.

Update: She had a breakdown and was committed.
