The Asian woman, identified only as Theresa in an ABC 7 News report, said the conversation started with no issues: "When she first introduced herself I said, 'Oh, it's so lovely to meet you.'"

But it went downhill from there. The woman interrogated Theresa about her home. "Whether or not I was a renter," Theresa said. "She even told me how much my house cost."

The video shows the woman approaching Theresa with her phone in hand, yelling racist comments at Theresa and her 10-year-old.

The woman yells several times, "Go back to China!" Theresa, who was filming the incident, asks the woman to stop coming toward her because she isn't wearing a mask.

Theresa and her daughter aren't Chinese, exemplifying the woman's racism. Anti-Asian racism and xenophobia have increased since the onset of COVID-19. People on Twitter are calling the incident a possible hate crime.

@JennyGShao tweeted: "This Karen should be charged with #hatecrime & #childendangerment. Charging at a mom like that with her child without a mask continually even as she backs away. This is anything but the First Amendment."
