A racist attack on a customer was caught on camera as he reprimanded workers at a Florida seafood restaurant demanding a refund in addition to his leftovers.
According to restaurant staff, the shocking encounter broke out at King Cajun Crawfish in Orlando on Monday.
According to a video of the incident, a woman repeatedly called the owner “Chinese b-h” and asked him to “go back to his country” while complaining about his food.
“She ordered snow crabs and fried shrimp. At the end of the meal to pay for, she said the shrimp had gone bad (it wasn’t) and she ate 3. We said sorry we can’t return it and he started making racist remarks,” King Cajun Crawfish wrote on his Instagram page.
“We’ll make sure you go to Google,” the indignant customer said while filming Kristen Nguyen behind the counter, according to the cell phone and security video.
“You’re a Chinese b—h, I’m not,” continued the obvious provocateur, wearing jeans and a black T-shirt.
Nguyen replied, “Well, I called you on camera,” he replied, as he recorded his cell phone footage.
“You’re a Chinese b-h,” the customer continued.
“Okay, thanks,” replied the worker.
“You’re a Chinese b-h, you want me to spell it for you? You’re a Chinese b-h.”
As the hateful exchange dragged on, the angry customer welcomed the idea of getting the executives involved.
“Af-k, who gives the b-h? Call the police! What are they gonna do? I’ll say it in front of them. You’re a Chinese b-h, now what?” She said, growing more irritated.
The customer taunted the worker with a series of outrageous Chinese-language projections before receiving the food, which he complained was boxed into a take-out container.
“Take your a- back to your country. Ching Chong,” he said as he left the establishment.
According to the Orlando Weekly, the woman’s hatred of the Chinese was actually mistaken for Nguyen, who was born in America and is of Vietnamese heritage.
The Orange County Sheriff was investigating the explosion, the outlet said. the department recently started An Asian American and Pacific Islander liaison program to address the nationwide influx of hate crimes against people of Asian descent during the coronavirus pandemic.
The restaurant identified the woman from her receipt as the owner of a local skincare business, whose Yelp page was later shut down with poor reviews from Web users who were intimidated by the racist occult.
The post does not include the name of the woman or her occupation as alleged by Nguyen.
However, the restaurant owner said that a separate business called Beauty Bar Orlando was being unfairly targeted by online advocates and insisted that the establishment was not associated with the racist rant.
King Cajun Crawfish bills itself as “Orlando’s best + favorite seafood restaurant.” According to its website, it was founded by Nguyen after Hurricane Katrina relocated from Bogalusa, Louisiana, to Florida.
