Sometimes you need to hold up a mirror to someone before they realize how stupid they really are.
That’s what a Filipino American man in Las Vegas did to his neighbor after she went on a racist rant over a dispute over the raking of leaves.
“Where did I come from?” Manawat asked her during the heated argument.
“From some piece of s***, Manila-a**, f***** ghetto living under a tarp piece of s**** land,” the woman is heard saying in the video posted on Facebook by Manawat and aired by KTNV in Las Vegas.
Manawat has since taken the video down from Facebook and the neighbor has apologized.
“What I said wasn’t right,” she told KTNV off camera. “I wasn’t raised that way. I was raised better than that and I stooped to the lowest common denominator, I suppose, to hurt somebody because I was angry.”
The woman say she has been threatened since the video became public, but says her apology has nothing to do with being caught.
What do you think? Is her apology sincere? Should Manawat, who accepted the apology, be more skeptical? Share your thoughts below.
