In a confrontation recorded on video, a man insults a Muslim woman in a niqab at a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in California.
A California coffee shop worker refused to serve a customer who insulted a Muslim woman wearing a head covering in a confrontation recorded on video.
The Press-Enterprise reports the clip posted online Monday was shot at a Riverside Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
It shows a man asking "Is this Halloween?" while standing in front of the woman wearing the head covering, called a niqab. When the woman confronts him, he replies he doesn't like her religion.
Do not be a bystander to racism. A million thank you’s to the people that spoke up for this young lady. pic.twitter.com/EehSw3AjLO— Simar (@sahluwal) May 13, 2018
Voices can be heard shouting for the man to leave. A supervisor who identifies herself as Tawny Alfaro refuses to sell him coffee while saying he was being disruptive and racist.
The Muslim woman replies with a "thank you."
The man and the Muslim woman are not identified.
Coffee Bean says it has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to discrimination. Alfaro couldn't be reached Tuesday.
