The local TV station crews and tabloid photographers rushed out to report the news and shoot a footage/ Around 1:45 pm the woman came back with a 14-inch machete. 

She started shouting, "The Kardashians will be executed if they step on communist territory. They will be f----g killed. Don't mess with the Castro family." An onlooker yelled at her to shut up but the woman shouted back threateningly.
