“I wish they didn’t let you in the country,” a Muslim woman was told while shopping at a Trader Joe’s in Virginia.
The American woman was filmed while unleashing an Islamophobic tirade at a Muslim shopper after the latter let the former in the checkout queue ahead of her.
The Muslim woman, who was wearing hijab at the time of the incident, then said that she was born in the US.
“Oh, you were? Okay,” she said, sounding unconvinced. “Obama's not in office anymore. We don't have a Muslim in there anymore.”
This comes as the former U.S. President Barack Obama has never practiced Islam and is a Protestant Christian. However, conspiracy theories that say he is Muslim are plentiful.
The Muslim shopper responds by saying she wished Obama was still president instead of current President Donald Trump, who is notorious for his Islamophobic rhetoric.
“You look a little crazy, maybe you need to get some help,” the Muslim shopper said, to which the woman said she was normal.
“No you're not, because you don't just strike up a conversation with people in line talking about stuff like that if you're normal.”
The footage was shared on social media and has since gone viral.
