A TikTok video of a New York City woman calling an Asian woman ugly has gone viral.
Denise Carino, an Asian woman, posted a TikTok video she took of a woman who called her ugly outside Empanada Mama in New York City.
Carino posted the video to her profile, @dennydoestiktok. The video begins with Carino clarifying that the woman had said, “Asian b*tches are ugly.”
“Yeah you are,” the woman replies. “Asian b*tches are ugly.”
She repeats the statement a few more times.
In the video, Carino also says the woman’s boyfriend eggs her on. She also claims that the restaurant workers stood by and did nothing.
Empanada Mama released a statement clarifying that the woman was not affiliated with their restaurant. They said she was removed from the restaurant once staff workers were notified of her behavior.
Carino wrote in the comments of her TikTok that the restaurant also called to apologize to her.
