A Virginia woman who made racist remarks at her Black neighbor was fired by her employer, according to the local newspaper The Progress-Index.

Video posted online shows the heated exchange and shows the woman in front of her neighbor's Colonial Heights, Virginia, home, telling her that she's "not the right color, honey."

In the video, the neighbor can be heard repeating, "I'm an n—?"

"Yes, you are," the woman, who is white, responded.

The end of the video shows the woman wearing a name tag that appears to be a work badge that says "Hilary."

It was not immediately clear what caused the confrontation, but the neighbor, Laquetta Good, told the Daily Mail it stemmed from an issue between their children.

"'I feel like a prisoner in my own home," Good told the Daily Mail. "'She has called me many names before, but to hear her being racist, that really shocked me."

The woman worked at Chesterfield Food Bank and was terminated from her job, the newspaper reported. The food bank's CEO, Kim Hill, told The Progress-Index that the incident was a "sad and an unfortunate situation."

"We, here at the CFB, are broken-hearted to view this conduct as it goes directly against our values and beliefs," Hill, wrote in a statement Friday." We are honored to serve everyone in need with dignity & integrity."

"In response to this situation, we have terminated this employee," Hill continued. "We remain committed to creating and providing a positive, uplifting, and encouraging environment for our staff, volunteers, and clients."
