Hilary Brooke Thornton was fired from her job as the manager of an apartment building in St. Louis on October 14. Two days previously, D’Arreion Toles uploaded a video to his Facebook page showing Thornton preventing him from entering the downtown St. Louis apartment building where he lives.
According to her now-deleted LinkedIn page, Thornton was a senior property manager with Tribeca-STL/STLCityWide. KMOV reports that Thornton was not the manager of the building where the incident occurred. Toles told KMOV, “I am not mad at her. I am not upset with her. I am not going to go after her legally or anything like that. I wish her the best. I would still have a conversation with her.”
