With BBQ Becky' and 'Permit Patty' you would think people would refrain from making racist comments or attacking people because of the language they speak. A Shell gas station attendant at Bernal Road and San Ignacio Avenue in San Jose, has gone viral after berating a customer holding her child, for speaking Spanish! What shall we nickname this woman?
She told ABC7 News, she was initially greeted in Spanish by one employee, while another stood nearby. The short conversation in Spanish was soon interrupted by the second employee. She demanded the two speak English.
"I even went up to her and I apologized," Moran said. "I said, 'Excuse me, I'm sorry. All she was saying is-- she was greeting me in Spanish. How my day's going.' And she said, 'I don't care, you talk in English because this is America.'"
Moran said the woman grew even more hostile.
"She started saying something about, 'Trump needs to hurry up and build the wall.' That's when I was like oh my God, she's being serious," Moran said. "I just got my phone, started videotaping her."
A manager at the gas station told ABC7 News the employee was fired the day of the confrontation. The manager added, the woman was employed for two or three months before the incident.
Although the woman was fired, she exposed the real hate in her heart and her name has yet to be revealed. Hoping exposing these people's behavior helps motivate others to speak up when they see race based injustices. See the full encounter below.
