The press secretary quickly exited the store shortly after.
On Sunday evening, as Spicer shopped inside an Apple Store in Washington, D.C. he was confronted by an angry woman who tried to shame him for working for Trump. Those are fighting words, but Chauhan takes offense at Spicer's observation that this is "such a great country that allows you to be here".
She has been attacked online since posting the video, with critics branding her "vile" and accusing her of harassment.
In it, Chauhan asks Spicer how it feels to work for "a fascist" and "what can you tell me about Russian Federation".
As Spicer is accustomed to being hurled insulting questions by the media every day in the White House Press Briefing Room, these kinds of questions are probably not too much of a challenge. "But when does being impolite mean that I should be thrown out of the United States of America?"
Writing about the encounter for Medium, Chuahan now contends that Spicer's comment to her was racist.
This isn't the first time Chauhan has made her views known to a person from Trump's administration.
