Couple who bought supermarket's entire supply of meat and 'bragged' about it at checkout say they are now getting DEATH THREATS as shelves continue to empty because of panic buying

A Canadian couple who purchased a supermarket's entire supply of meat and 'bragged' about it while checking out, are now claiming that they are living in fear after receiving numerous death threats. 
Dan Marcotte and his girlfriend were captured on video by customer, Taylor Born, stockpiling on several types of meat at the Save On Foods in Lake Country last weekend. 
The video shows the couple standing in the checkout line with two shopping carts full of meat at a time when millions of people have flooded stores to stock up on essentials amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Born told Kelowna Now that Marcotte and his girlfriend 'ran in front of other customers, cutting them off to take every last item'.
She claimed they even 'bragged' to everyone about wiping out the stock and leaving 'nothing left for anyone to get'.
Marcotte, who owns the Dan-Mel moving company, has since spoken out about the incident and blamed it on panic-buying amid the coronavirus outbreak that has seen thousands of people in the US and other countries flock to grocery stores and wipe out items like toilet tissue, paper towels and sanitizers.  
'Everybody knows who I am, because I put myself out there, (now) I'm getting death threats and I don't answer the phone so I'm losing business. My own mother is ashamed of me,' Marcotte told news site, Vancouver Is Awesome.   
Marcotte said he has also donated $1,000 to the Lake Country Food Bank after the incident.
He called the stockpiling a 'mistake' after he got caught up in the anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

'If me and my girlfriend had done this two months ago nobody would say a bloody word. We're getting crucified for buying two carts of meat. We might have gone overboard, but we didn't push people or laugh at anyone.
'I'm not feeling safe, and me and my girlfriend are scared.'  
The video of Marcotte and his girlfriend has since been removed from Facebook. 
Representatives from Save On Foods have also announced their new policies limiting customers to how much of certain items they are allowed to buy.    
 
Panic buyers continue to empty shelves across North America despite officials saying it's not necessary 
Americans have been panic-buying since early March, stockpiling on items like toilet paper, paper towels, bottled water and sanitizer. 
The anxiety caused by the coronavirus pandemic has caused for people clear out shelves of supermarkets, wholesale stores and even pharmacies like Walgreens and CVS.  
Just a few days ago, Americans were seen crossing the border into Mexico just to buy toilet tissue. 
More than 600 shoppers, most of them from California, who were desperate to get their hands on coveted items, were seen lined up outside a Tijuana Costco last Tuesday. 
And the stockpiling has continued into this week despite President Donald Trump and other officials telling Americans to take it easy.

Donald Trump insisted Sunday that people stop panic buying and hoarding food and goods as the coronavirus death toll in the U.S. hit 63 and cases neared 3,500. 
'We're going to be so good,' Trump claimed in a press conference at the White House Sunday evening, adding, 'Relax, we're doing great. It all will pass.' 
'You don't have to buy so much. Take it easy. Just relax,' Trump said. 'There's no need for anybody in the country to hoard essential food supplies.' 
Trump said he spoke with the top industry leaders of various retailers and food stores who have assured him that the shelves will be replenished.  
Vice President Mike Pence, who is leading the coronavirus task force, also assured Americans that stores would remain open indefinitely. 
'As the president said, he received a commitment from those grocery executives that stores will stay open throughout the days that lie ahead,' he said, adding that hours might be changed or reduced so they could do additional cleanings and resupplies.
'American families can be confident, your local grocery stores will be open, it's going to be well supplied. And they specifically asked us to encourage Americans just buy your weekly needs in grocery. Because the grocery stores will remain open,' he reassured.

And Tiffjcs god bless u hun don’t get upset we have to be united.

    2. My attitude is this, the virus is not the problem the way people are reacting to it is the problem! Chill out this too shall pass we are all in the same boat. You can’t do anything to change it and every day you have food and a roof over your head ability to shower be grateful because most of the people have live their entire lives without that. This virus it’s not creating panic people are

  7. Wow! Bitter much? Yes, what that man, and his girlfriend was selfish, ignorant, and wrong, but you are also, perhaps even worse! I completely agree with ImThatBitsh, people like you, with your hateful, and nasty attitude are what’s wrong with this country, and it’s disgusting, and angers me to no end!!! Some people, such as yourself, are never happy unless they are causing others grief, and it’s a damn shame. Take a good look in the mirror, and you will see that you’re far from perfect, and you have no right to judge others. So stop being such a miserable asshole, and change your shitty attitude, because no one wants to hear your bullshit!

  10. Everybody talks about how people are taking all the meats and everything else but the stores are also raising the prices because of the Coronavirus I think that's ridiculous and they should lower the prices because everybody losing their jobs and stuff start thinking about how to help people instead of making it harder for people God bless everybody this whole world be grateful for what they have and who they have with them because God sees everything and if God wants to in a blink of an eye he could take out this world everybody needs to be good because God doesn't see this will get any better we will all be gone in the blink of an eye

  13. Well unfortunately that's what happens when you are a stupid, idiotic moron and brag on social media!!! You think everyone was going to think what you did was great!?!?!? Now you and your brainless girlfriend are getting the backlash from your bragging... Death threats are a rather extreme, but in the situation we're in right now, what do you
    expect??? Donating the $1,000 was a good was to right your wrong and people should really just let it go... I'm sure the ignorance of what he's done was scared out of him!!!

  14. I wish everyone would sit back and think rationally about what they’ve said. There’s no excuse for the sort of language that is being used. Sure, the guy bought all the meat that was available and it was done in the spirit of greediness and one upping everyone. He now regrets his actions. What’s been done is in the past. People need to learn to move on and stop throwing obscenities at those with whom they have a problem. It’s no wonder there’s so much hatred in the world. If everyone would chill out and learn how to use kindness and forgiveness we would all be much happier.
