Woman Freaks Out After Hearing Mexican Restaurant Manager Speak Spanish

The bad news is that white Americans continue to be racist as hell. So many people have a problem with anyone who isn’t white, or who worships a different way, or who speaks a language that isn’t English. A video that’s going viral captures a woman sitting in Tampico Mexican Restaurant in Parkersburg, West Virginia. She’s yelling at the restaurant manager because he dared to speak Spanish to two employees in her presence, Latino Rebels reported.

The videos were posted on the Facebook account of Irma Dleon, who wrote, “My daughter captured this situation while working. My poor baby was frightened but cannot believe this continues to happen. We should be united as a country but there is much hate. We are all human trying to help each other out. I will pray for this woman to be a better person, but you can only educate the ignorant. First they must listen.”

In the first video, a woman is saying, “I lived in California for 20 years. English is our first language, so you need to speak English.” The man says, “I’m sorry about you,” to which she responds, “I’m sorry about you, too” and then tells him, “Get the f*ck out of my country!”

The woman insists that her problem is not with how the man looks, but with his language. The man, who has since been identified as Sergio Budar, tells the woman that he’s a U.S. citizen. As for speaking English, “What do you think I’m doing?” he asks her.

A man in the restaurant says that if the woman is going to be racist, she’ll have to leave, but she says, “I am not racist.”

Meanwhile, the woman’s companion tries to get her to stop talking, going so far as trying to put a hand over her mouth.

People begin to surround the table. A man comes over and tells her that she can’t say racist things in the restaurant and that she should leave. He forcefully says “these are good people” and makes it clear he’s not going to allow her to badmouth them.

The second video picks up right where the first left off. Budar tells the woman that he’s going to cover the cost of her meal, but that she has to leave. Someone comes over and takes the plate from in front of her.

As the cup is taken from her hand and she’s being escorted out by her companion, she says that she was raped by illegal aliens. She says this repeatedly, and throws something at Budar, once again saying that he should speak English. As she’s walking out the front door, yelling as if all Mexicans are rapists (who is she, Donald Trump?) another person at the restaurant says, “White men rape women, too. They all do.”

The video ends there.

One of the commenters on the Facebook post identifies the woman as Jill Kronenberger:

Although the woman’s identity has not been confirmed, the companion of the woman in the video does seem to call the woman “Jill” a few times.

This is a developing story, so we’ll update with news as it happens.
