A white woman was fired from her job after she tried to stop a black man going into his own apartment building in St Louis.

D’Arreion Toles said he was coming home from work when neighbor, Hilary Brooke Thornton, physically blocked him from entering the building at the luxury block in the Missouri city.

He posted three videos of the incident on Facebook, appearing to show the woman blocking him from the door as she walked her dog at the Elder Shirt Lofts in the downtown area on Sunday.

Ms Thornton was fired from her job as a luxury realtor after the video provoked outrage.
