A woman’s tirade against staff at a Burnaby Shoppers Drug Mart on Monday — captured on video and being shared widely on social media — has been labelled rude and racist by the man who filmed it.

In the video , posted on Facebook by Allen Tseng, a white woman is seen berating the Asian staff for “speaking Chinese” in front of her.

The unidentified woman calls one staff member “rude as f–k” for not speaking English.

“Speak English in Canada,” she says while pointing her finger at a customer service agent. “You’re rude, you are rude. Go somewhere else.”

The woman continues her profane rant against three employees while a young boy looks on beside her.

According to Tseng’s post, the incident occured Monday at the Shoppers Drug Mart at Kingsway and McMurray Avenue.

“I just want to put this lady on blast for being extremely rude and racist. And hopefully show her there’s consequences to this type of behaviour. It’s sad to see this sort of racism still in 2019 and in Greater Vancouver,” Tseng said in his post.

Tung Chan: Is speaking a language other than English really that bad? .
Another ugly incident was recently posted on social media showing a woman berating an Asian customer service representative in a Burnaby drugstore for speaking something other than English in front of her. This in a country that prides itself as tolerant and accepting of multicultural communities. Sixteen years ago, I wrote an op-ed piece for The Vancouver Sun in response to a similar incident in one of the branches of a bank where I worked. A customer had complained to me about a customer service representative speaking Chinese to another customer he was serving.
