(KRDO) — PUEBLO, Colo. – The woman behind a viral video out of Pueblo said her experience at Walmart happened, despite the corporation’s statements that her story is false.

Paige Yore told KRDO NewsChannel 13 that she received thousands of hateful emails and several death threats after questions surfaced about her story. She said she never posted the video for fame or money, but instead, wanted to spread a message of love.

“What I am doing is not about the fame, it’s not about the money, it’s not about being on ABC. It’s about touching people’s lives in a world where we all forget what the meaning of Christmas is,” said Yore.

Yore said she doesn’t want this to turn into a fight with Walmart, but said her experience was real, contrary to the company’s statements.
