Cafe refuses to serve man after racist rant

Tanya Edwards

In a shocking video posted to Twitter, a man in a cafe is shown making racist and offensive remarks to a woman in a head covering and is subsequently asked to leave.

The altercation was filmed by the woman who recorded the man asking, “Is this Halloween or something?” while the two are in line for coffee.

“Do you know I’m Muslim?” the woman says in a tense back and forth.

After confirming he has a problem with that, he says, “I don’t like it, that’s why. I don’t like your religion, it says to kill me.”

The man turns to the counter and the server appears to ask him to leave. A male voice can be heard in the background yelling, “Get out of here, get out you racist.”

The man then asks for the supervisor, and the server who asked him to leave identifies herself as the supervisor. The man walks out the door.

“Why are you not serving him?” the woman asks the supervisor.

“Because he is disrupting a public place and being very racist,” she says.

“Thank you,” says the woman in the headscarf.

The man who shared the video is journalist CJ Werleman, who wrote that the incident occurred at a coffee shop in California on Saturday.

People who watched the video said that they were glad the manager and other patrons stood up to the abusive man.


Others were horrified by the man’s behavior.
