PUEBLO, Colorado — Walmart says a woman’s emotional Facebook video about her experience at a store in Pueblo is not true.

Paige Yore‘s¬†heartbreaking post about her shopping experience has gone viral.

Yore claimed she was waiting in line for about 20 minutes when she saw a young cashier having a hard time and watched a women yell at the young man.

In the video, Yore said she watched the woman yell at the boy when her card was declined.

Yore claims she hugged the cashier as he began to cry, and that the cashier said his mother committed suicide that morning.

“This is not true,” a Walmart media relations representative told KRDO¬†on Monday.

Walmart officials told the Colorado Springs station that company officials have¬†spoken with the cashier — and that his mother is alive.

Company officials also told KRDO that it reviewed surveillance video from the store. It did not find evidence of any yelling, or that Yore hugged the cashier.

There was some tension between the cashier and the customer in front of the Yore, the Walmart spokesperson said, but it was due to a language barrier.

Yore has not posted a response to Walmart’s claims as of Monday afternoon.

However, on Saturday —¬†a day after the video was posted – she wrote¬†that she was reaching out Walmart corporate because she wanted to track down the cashier and raise money for him.
