(WATCH) Racist White Guy Punches Hispanic Man In Throat For Ordering Food In Spanish
KTLA reported that a white man entered a Waba Grill off of Mountain Avenue in Ontario, California, angrily pushed a 44-year-old Mexican man named Jose to the ground, and proceeded to scream “Watch out, you f—ing Mexican.” Security footage obtained by KTLA shows the angry white guy bumping into Jose, then punching him in the throat when he tried to get up. Jose apparently deserved all of this because he had the audacity to order food in Spanish.
“It’s obviously a concern when anytime you have somebody who attacks somebody unprovoked,” Ontario Police Sgt. Bill Russell told. Local law enforcement officials are investigating the incident as a potential hate crime.
A somewhat similar incident occurred earlier this year at a New York Restaurant when an entitled white lawyer violently accosted employees and customers for speaking Spanish in a New York restaurant, describing them as undocumented and threatening to call immigration officials in a rant captured on video. The lawyer was soon identified after the video went viral and internet users completely obliterated his law firm on Yelp.
