Bystander Catches Woman’s Unbelievably Racist Rant At Asian Store Employees On Film

We’ve all seen our share of ugly incidents while out in public, but some of them are real head-scratchers. This one falls into that category, but it also crossed the line from head scratching into downright disturbing and flat-out repulsive. As Yahoo shares, a woman was displeased with the service she was getting at an Asian grocery store in Toronto, and she decided to launch into a racist rant to satisfy her angst.

The disturbing incident was captured on video, and the frustrated woman was lamenting that “none of these people speak English.” That wasn’t the end of it. While her claim was completely false, she decided to unload a little bit more for good measure.

“Go back to China. This is Canada, English-first country,” she yells. “If you’re gonna work here, it is the law to know English.”

Besides the fact that the aggrieved woman’s claims were completely false, they also exposed her as an unconscionable bigot who has some serious trouble controlling her emotions. Frank Hong was in the store at the time, and he uploaded some video he shot of the disturbing scene. He would add a heartfelt post that the angry woman would be wise to read - after taking some deep breaths.

“After three minutes of constant, racist verbal abuse and after trying to intervene, I started to film this video. Racism and xenophobia isn't far from us nor has it gone away. As Canadians we think we are safe from these disgusting attitudes and behaviours but we aren't. It has only gotten worse recently. It seems like some people want to reinstate the Chinese Exclusion Act,” he wrote.

Regardless of your frustration level, there’s simply no reason to bring racism into the discussion. Period. If you’re having trouble with the service you are receiving, the best course of action is to politely ask to speak with a manager. If your needs are still not being met, it may be a good idea to leave. Yes, it’s as simple as that.

“It makes me nothing but seething mad that this lady had the audacity to spew such toxic words while exploiting POC cultures. Absolutely Horrendous. And shout out to the lady who tried to help despite the terrible situation. I have never seen someone with so much kindness and compassion, it is truly breathtaking,” his post continued.

Kudos to the woman that stepped in, but it doesn’t seem like there’s anything that would’ve helped this unfortunate situation. Hopefully, the racist woman has been banned from ever stepping foot into that store again. Employees should never be subjected to that kind of behavior, and it’s quite clear she doesn’t deserve the privilege of shopping there.

“It is quite evident that this lady knows absolutely nothing about Canadian Law and should shut up because she is saying things that are absolutely false. Nothing screams discrimination louder when you have to make up a fake law to justify your racist comments…” Hong’s post continued.
