Brooke Scott, has been identified as the woman making racist comments in a Rapid City pub over the weekend.

A woman that goes by Sunny Red Bear-Whitcombe, according to her Instagram, went into detail about the event that occurred on Friday.

“Last night this woman came up and started calling my friend Chynna Lockett and myself “Rez bitches”, “ugly” and saying “go back to your reservation” for about 5 minutes while we were just waiting for fried pickles at Murphy’s Pub & Grill. Luckily, we were able to get it on camera.”

Scott has been banned from Murphy’s Pub & Grill. The company will be working on training for any future similar issues so they will be handled better.
