New York State Senator John C. Liu said Monday that he had received a racist voicemail at his office. He posted a video on Twitter of himself listening to the message.
“John, you lost my vote, you f***ing ch**k piece of sh*t, with the video from the park,” an anonymous man says in the message.
“You lost my whole family’s vote. You’re losing thousands of votes you fucking asshole. Go back to f***ing China where you belong you fucking useless piece of sh*t,” the man continues.
It is unclear what video the man is referring to or what may have prompted him to leave the offensive voicemail. Congresswoman Grace Meng, who represents New York’s 6th congressional district, called the voicemail “awful, disgusting and unacceptable” on Twitter. New York Governor Kathy Hochul told Liu she was sorry he had to experience the hateful voicemail and condemned the language in it.
