"To be a black man in America & come home", Toles captioned the video. He said Mueller called the authorities on him for entering his own apartment.

D'Arreion Toles recorded the Friday night encounter with Hilary Brooke Mueller, who was outside with her dog and repeatedly asked Toles what unit of the Elder Shire Lofts condominium complex he lived in.

In another video, Mr Toles films his keys in his apartment door and pans the camera to the woman who is watching him from the hall.

A St. Louis woman was sacked from her job Saturday after video of her blocking a man from entering a luxury loft until he proved he lived at the complex went viral, amassing more than 4 million views since it was posted early Saturday morning.

"I was kind of blown away, shocked and like wow", said Toles.

The video and her actions led to the woman being fired from her position at a different apartment complex in the city. About 30 minutes after the last video, Toles reported that officers showed up at his door saying they had gotten a complaint that he made another resident "uncomfortable".

The first cellphone video, showing the woman denying him entry into the building, has received more than 5 million views.

"I can", she responds.

"OK, you can be uncomfortable". "You're uncomfortable because you're you".

Hilary Brooke Thornton was sacked from her job as the manager of a luxury apartment building in St. Louis on October 14. On Sunday, they fired her from her job.

The exchange continued likes this and the woman asked: "Do you live here?"

"Sir, you walked up off a street", the woman told him.

"Can you please move ma'am?"

"You're blocking me", he told her. After entering the building, the woman persisted to follow him into the elevator and changed her story to reflect that she wanted to "meet him" since he's a neighbor. "And you see my keys in the door".

He added: "At the end of the day, why would she call the police on me?"

"I don't need to tell you that information". Don't ever do that again.

The two tenants speak in the lobby for some time, after which the woman follows the man all the way to his fourth-floor apartment.

"As a man of color I have spent most of my professional career teaching others the importance of diversity and inclusion", he said.
