CAUGHT ON VIDEO: Anti-masker's racist rant in Mississauga grocery store
A video recently posted to social media shows the aftermath of supermarket workers asking an unmasked male to leave their store in Mississauga.
The incident reportedly happened at T&T Supermarket, a Chinese supermarket located at 715 Central Parkway West which requires its customers to wear a mask inside.
When the man was asked to either wear a mask or leave, he dumped his items on the ground and began ranting, calling the workers communists, not Canadian, and blaming the coronavirus on the Chinese government.
The man also purported that he couldn’t wear a mask due to his asthma.
“If I wear a mask, I will have an asthma attack. And these communists are all attacking us — attacked my wife, this man pushed me,” the man announced to the rest of the store. “So you’re going to be in trouble. I’m gonna have the police right here at the door.”
While the situation briefly looked like it would escalate into violence, the workers eventually succeeded in getting the man to leave.
A full video of the incident can be seen below:
