SHAME: 89-year-old Evelyn Redic, who lived through Jim Crow, was denied the use of a bathroom at a Shell gas station in Charlotte, NC, and had to relieve herself outside in 90 degree weather.

WBTV reported that Redic was on a church trip when the van she was traveling in had a flat tire and they stopped at a Shell gas station. Redic’s granddaughter, Katossa Glover, posted the encounter in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

Glover said the gas station attendant refused to allow Redic to use the bathroom despite her age and her frailty.
