According to Twitter reports, one of the customers who was targeted said: "To give Costco the credit, they escorted him out and made me wait inside and monitored him until he left and then they sent someone with me to the auto to make sure I'm okay".
The clip was posted to Twitter by documentary film director Billy Corben.
The shopper, identified as Daniel Maples, apparently "flipped out" at an elderly woman after she asked him to wear a mask while shopping at Costco in Fort Myers, in the U.S. state of Florida.

The man is seen stepping toward the person, fists balled while yelling "I feel threatened!" Back up! Threaten me again!
He was then shown briefly walking away before swiftly turning back around and approaching the camera to say, "Back the f*** up". She seems to call him Dan. Twitter sleuths promptly identified him as Daniel Maples, a Florida man and an insurance agent at Ted Todd Insurance. "Their behavior in the video is in direct conflict with our company values and their employment has been terminated", the company wrote. "Put your f***ing phone down".
Daniel Maples was a salesman at Tedd Todd Insurance.
Corben said the man was escorted by Costco employees out of the store, located at the Gulf Coast Town Center in Fort Myers.More news: Fernando Alonso will make his Formula One return with Renault next season
CEO Charley Todd followed with an additional statement in which he said his company would immediately review its existing culture.
The person who took the viral video has not disclosed his name and only wanted to save the older lady, who asked the Florida man to wear a mask.
Maples had reportedly worked since 2016 for Ted Todd Insurance, though the company announced on Twitter that he had been fired in light of the video.
One of the customers targeted by the man reportedly said Costco handled the incident well: "To give Costco the credit, they escorted him out and made me wait inside and monitored him until he left and then they send someone with me to the auto to make sure I'm okay". "Threatening behavior and intimidation go against our core mission to be trusted advisors in our community".More news: One new case of COVID-19
