Undated photo circulating on social media of man wearing makeshift Ku Klux Klan hood at the Santee Vons grocery store.

Social media users including the leader of the Anti-Defamation League of San Diego expressed outrage this weekend over photos taken of a male shopper at the Santee Vons wearing a makeshift Ku Klux Klan hood.

On Twitter, San Diego ADL regional director Tammy Gillies posted a photo and said: “Don’t know which angers me more — the person wearing this or the fact that no one in management
@Vons Santee did anything about it.” ⁦

Other tweets said Vons security asked the man to shed the hood — ostensibly being used to meet face-mask requirements in San Diego County.

Vons corporate officials didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Protests at the store were being organized, Times of San Diego was told.

On Saturday, photos began circulating of a middle-age man in shorts and untucked brown shirt wearing a Klan hood in a grocery store’s produce department. It was depicted as the Vons at 9643 Mission Gorge Road.

Times of San Diego went to the store on Sunday to verify that it is the one in the photo that is circulating.

One user on Twitter named him #KlanteeMan, referencing an old reputation calling Santee “Klantee” for its connections to white supremacists.

“I’m a 53-yr-old woman in Vista and if I had seen him I would have ripped it off his head,” said one woman on Twitter.

Another woman said: “I am outraged & angry. Please share the post, and let’s identify the racist POS behind the KKK hood. If you know something, say something.”

“WHY WAS THIS PERSON NOT REMOVED FROM THE STORE IMMEDIATELY??? IS @vons DOWN WITH THE KLAN???” tweeted Touré, the author, journalist and TV host.

One Twitter user thanked Vons management.

“Several employees came over together and told the man to either remove the hood or he would have to leave, so he removed the hood,” said a tweet later deleted. “So troublesome in so many ways this is still happening in Santee at Vons. Disgusting!”
