A 30-second viral video shows a racist attacking multiple patrons in an Austin, Texas brunch restaurant, including throwing hot coffee and hitting an employee in the face with the coffee mug.
It’s unknown when the video was first shot. It would appear that it occurred before the COVID-19 pandemic, given Texas maintained a mask mandate with limited indoor seating capacity. Nonetheless, it took off once @davenewworld_2 reposted it on Tuesday morning.
The caption for the follow-up tweet suggested that the altercation occurred at a Snooze restaurant in Austin.
The brief clip starts with a white man standing at the counter arguing with a Black man. Angered, the white man throws what appears to be hot coffee at someone off-screen. A scrap ensures as other customers try to calm the man down.
However, he gets more aggressive, shouting that the Black man had assaulted him, then seeming to yell out the N-word.
Thoroughly enraged, he eventually smashes a white employee in the face with his mug.
“I didn’t mean to hit you that hard,” he says at the end. Some on Twitter suggested the people assaulted by the man should sue.
Stills were provided in a follow-up tweet, essentially calling for the identification of the racist.
One Twitter user suggested they were entirely too nice to the racist patron.
