By now, you've probably heard the story of the woman who videotaped herself issuing a racist rant to employees of a Dunkin' Donuts in Florida. The details of her rant, and her abhorrent video can be found here. As indicated earlier, the person responsible for that wonderful ray of sunshine is named Taylor Chapman, and showing all the determination of a pissed off 4Chan user, quite a few Internet reporters have been working hard to find out more details about the entitled brat.
First off, if you've seen her Twitter page, you probably noticed the fellow posing besides her. This upstanding individual, Sean Hosch, is also a solid contributor to society. More on that in a moment, however.
As for Chapman, she has tried her hand at web marketing for the following company, and while she is not in the linked video in question, it gives you an example of her business acumen, something she was eager to boast about while berating the Dunkin' Donuts employees. Other details about Chapman include:
Prior to her Dunkin’ Donuts production, Chapman--who attended Nova Southeastern University in Davie--appeared in several marketing videos for local Florida businesses... While her LinkedIn page lists her current employee as a medical device firm, an employee there said Chapman has not worked for the company in over a year.
So yeah, it looks like Chapman's previous associates are pretty much disavowing her, and after her stunning contribution to Internet lore, that is certainly understandable. As for Chapman's male sidekick, Sean Hosch, it's also clear she likes to associate with like-minded individuals who have no need for society's rules:
In February 2011, Fort Lauderdale police charged him with reckless driving and with possession of a controlled substance as well as possession of cannabis. That February wasn't a good month for Hosch. Within weeks of the drug incident, Hosch was charged with three felonies in county court: burglary of an unoccupied structure and two counts of grand theft of a motor vehicle. (He pleaded no contest to all counts and was put on probation for 18 months.)
As of this writing, there hasn't been any word from Chapman since her video blew up the Internet. Reports indicate her social media profile disappearing from the web, something that is indeed true about her LinkedIn and Facebook accounts. One of Twitter accounts is still up, however, but that hasn't been updated since February.
Whatever the case, when she does resurface, if she's looking to put this incident behind her, she might want to consider a name change, because she's pretty much ruined the "Taylor Chapman" combination for everybody else, at least for the foreseeable future.
