Muslim woman wearing niqab was insulted and targeted in a racist rant by a man in Riverside, California.
The incident took place Friday at a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf shop in Riverside east of Los Angeles, NBC4 reported.
A video went viral on social media on Saturday showing a white man harassing the Muslim woman for her religious dressing style.
“Is it Halloween or something?” the man asked prompting the Muslim lady to reply asking ih he knows about her religion and inquired if he had a problem with that.
“I don’t like your religion, how’s that?” the man answered. “I don’t want to be killed by you.”
However, the offended woman received support by the shop employee who refused to serve the man.
Moreover, the man said “I don’t like your religion because it says to kill me, and I don’t want to be killed by you. How’s that?”
“You are committing hate speech,” the woman replied.
Barry Landua, another customer, defended the woman in the video as saying: “Get out of here! [Expletive] racist,” Landau said. “I said get out of here! Why are you doing this to her?”
The supervisor of the coffee says the man will not be served, “Because he is disrupting a public place and being very racist.”
The woman in the niqab could be heard in the video thanking the supervisor.
