A man in the middle of asking his girlfriend to be his wife was stopped mid-proposal at a New York farm Sunday, and the bride-to-be said the interruption was because they are black.Cathy-Marie Hamlet said her fianc\u00e9 and six friends drove from New York City to the Angry Orchard farm in Walden, New York, on Sunday to celebrate her fianc\u00e9\u2019s 40th birthday, but shortly after arriving, their festivities were interrupted.Hamlet, 32, told NBC News on Monday that she and Clyde Jackson were sitting at a table outside the orchard\u2019s gift shop when a female security guard approached them, accused Jackson of stealing a T-shirt and asked to check his back pocket.\u201cMy boyfriend then emptied all of his pockets, while still trying to keep the ring box hidden from my sight,\u201d Hamlet said. \u201cShe then walked away, and my boyfriend and I sat down at the table and he began his proposal speech.\u201dBut mid-way through, the couple was interrupted again, Hamlet said.\u201cShe came back over to us and said, \u2018Now I need to search your purse,'" Hamlet said. "My bag was small and I couldn\u2019t have fit a T-shirt in it, but I emptied the contents of my purse anyway."After the second interruption, Hamlet said she asked the security guard what her motives were for approaching them.\u201cI told her that I knew she was just doing her job, but I couldn\u2019t help but wonder if she kept coming up to us because we\u2019re black,\u201d Hamlet said. \u201cWe were the only black people there, besides three of the friends who came along with us.\u201dHamlet said the security guard denied that she approached them because they\u2019re black and left once her search for a gift-store T-shirt turned up empty.Cathy-Marie Hamlet says she and her fianc?, Clyde Jackson, were racially profiled at Angry Orchard during his wedding proposal.Courtesy of Cathy-Marie HamletBut the security guard approached the couple a third time, Hamlet said, immediately after she accepted Jackson\u2019s proposal and the pair's friends gathered to celebrate.\u201cShe said, \u2018I\u2019m sorry, I didn\u2019t realize you were all part of the same party. I have to check all of your purses and pockets,\u2019\u201d Hamlet said. \u201cAt this point, five other security guards came over.""I felt humiliated, especially after one of my white friends made a point of asking them to check her bag for the T-shirt, but they refused to do so," Hamlet said.One of the security guards instructed another to call the police, according to Hamlet, after which the group decided to leave.\u201cIt started to get confrontational and I wasn\u2019t interested in waiting around for the police because we didn\u2019t know what would happen,\u201d Hamlet told NBC News.Hamlet said the security guards took pictures of the group and her license plate as they left.Taylor Roy, a senior communications specialist at Boston Beer Company, which owns Angry Orchards, said the company has reached out to the couple "to try to make things right and prevent something like this from happening again."Roy said that although the interaction was "based on what the security guards thought was a credible claim, it was mishandled" and the company will be conducting additional training for its staff.Hamlet said in a lengthy Facebook post on Sunday that she left the orchard in tears.She addressed the orchard directly, writing, "if you don\u2019t want black people buying your product or frequenting your establishment, then maybe put a sign on the door so that we know we are not welcome. I love hard cider, but Angry Orchard will never touch these lips again."Hamlet said what was supposed to be a joyous occasion was ruined.\u201cI feel confused and conflicted over what to do now and how to move forward, that one of the happiest moments of my life could be partially overshadowed like this,\u201d Hamlet said Monday. \u201cIt\u2019s sad that in 2019 we still need to have these conversations.\u201dGwen Aviles Gwen Aviles writes for NBC News' Latino, Out, BLK and Asian America verticals.\u00a0\u00a0Janelle Griffith contributed.
