An angry woman shouted racial abuse at a Latinx man, repeatedly calling him a “nasty Mexican dog,” in a video by a good Samaritan that’s now viral on Twitter.
User @milkteamamacita shared the 45-second video on her Twitter page on Sunday, saying it was captured at “Geneva Ave & Carter St near the Cow Palace. A predominately Black/Latino neighborhood,” at the border of Daly City and San Francisco, California.
“My boyfriend was walking to his car when he witnessed a woman in his neighborhood yelling racial slurs at a Latino man walking his dog,” she wrote in the clip’s caption. “My bf called her to stop and proceeded to walk to his car. She was waiting for him up the hill and started to attack him verbally.”
The video has roughly 1 million views on Twitter and was shared more than 20,000 times. It starts when her boyfriend, identified as Stanley Gonzalez by ABC7, intervenes by saying, “God bless you, lady.”
“For me, I’ve seen too much with what’s going on with the nation… I felt like it was my duty, something just snapped to defend this man,” Gonzalez told ABC7.
Gonzalez checked on the unnamed dog walker and kept walking down the street to where his car was parked. However, he would find the same woman, awaiting him, with racial abuse.
In a subsequent tweet, the user said she had an update: “We were able to find out the lady’s name and address with the help of the pubic. Reports have been made with Daly City police. This story also got media coverage in favor of my boyfriend and will air on ABC7 tonight at 4pm. This bitch is getting EXPOSED.”
“It’s easy to feel unsupported as a person of color but it has been so heartwarming to see so many people standing together with me on this issue,” the user later wrote. “Thank you to everyone, to all Bay Area natives & POC that stood with me to help my boyfriend get justice from this situation.”
