The good vibes just keep on coming in post-Trump America. The Miami New Times reports that an enraged customer at an area Starbucks screamed at a black employee for taking too long with his order. After shouting the word "Trump!" at the worker, the man claimed he was a victim of what he called "white discrimination."
Jorge de Cárdenas, another customer at the South Dixie Highway coffee shop, told the New Times that he started filming the altercation on his phone after patrons began jumping in to defend the employee.
"He said it was 'anti-white discrimination,'" Cárdenas said of the sweater vest-wearing Trump supporter. "So he started disparaging the staff. One patron called him an asshole, so he said, 'Fuck you, bitch.' That's when I started filming."
The two-minute video, which has since been shared over 2,500 times on Twitter, shows the white, middle-aged man announcing to the black female employee that he "voted for Trump," before repeating the President-elect's name. He then calls the employee "garbage" and "complete trash" before getting into a verbal altercation with yet another customer.
"There's no need to talk like that," the customer says in the video. "You want to talk like that, take it outside. But do not talk to other people that way." Ultimately, the Trump supporter storms out of the store, shouting "Ridiculous!" as his blond, shoulder-length hair flutter in the wind.
Since Election Day, the Southern Poverty Law Center has recorded some 400 instances of harassment and hate in the U.S. And though the incident at Starbucks luckily didn't turn to violence, the restaurant industry hasn't been immune to these instances of racism and misogyny. Last week, a Trump supporter allegedly called a TGI Friday's server the N-word on a receipt, and over the weekend a female Hillary Clinton supporter was punched in the face by a man at a restaurant in Brooklyn.
Given the fact that the Republican candidate won the election, what are Trump supporters still so upset about?
"The funny thing, besides just the concept of 'anti-white discrimination,' is just yelling 'Trump!' for no reason," Cárdenas said. "Like, dude, you won."
