A woman was caught on video yelling racially-charged comments amidst an angry rant at a Shoppers Drug Mart in Burnaby.
The incident occurred in the late-evening on Monday, October 28th, at the 24/7 Shoppers Drug Mart on Kingsway and McMurray Avenue, across the street from Metrotown.
The video, posted to Facebook by Allen Tseng, begins mid-way through the incident.
A woman is seen yelling “shut up” to two clerks behind the cash register, one male and one female. “Speak English in Canada”, she then adds, all with the accusatory finger raised and in action.
She repeatedly tells the male employee that he was being rude for “speaking Chinese”. There has not been any confirmation as to whether or not the employees were speaking Mandarin, or whether or not they were of Chinese descent.
This all occurs as a young boy standing close to the woman, presumably her son, watches silently.
The two parties then finish the transaction, quietly.
A male clerk from a different part of the store then joins them. The clerk says something to the woman and the woman quickly responds with “You want a manager to talk to me, you bring your manager here.”
The clerk immediately tells the woman to get out.
The woman reiterates her comment, adding “you idiot.”
“Go speak Chinese with your other staff and shit-talk me somewhere else”, she adds.
The male clerk the woman was initially speaking to then steps in as the woman complains about the third clerk, before grabbing her bagged groceries and storming out.
Here’s the full clip.
Saw this happen today at the Shoppers Drug Mart on Kingsway/McMurray. I just want to put this lady on blast for being extremely rude and racist. And hopefully show her there's consequences to this type of behaviour. It's sad to see this sort of racism still in 2019 and in Greater Vancouver, BC, and Canada 😔 #racism
