An Indian national in New Zealand took to Facebook Live to highlight what he claimed was a racist tirade by a White person, who asked him to go back to his own country during a road rage incident in Auckland.
Narindervir Singh’s Facebook video has now been viewed more than 42,000 times. Singh said that was filming from inside his vehicle when the incident happened on a weekday last week.
Singh streamed the video live on Facebook and while he informed the driver that he’s uploading the video live, the situation escalated and Singh was abused, sworn at and told to go back to his own country.
The abuser, who is seen in video wearing a grey Everlast t-shirt, was tail-gating according to Singh, who says he simply pulled over to let him pass. The man also made derogatory remarks about Punjabi people, Newshub reported. As Singh drove off, the abuser exposed himself.
“It really shocked me and after he [left], I was really shaken,” Newshub quoted Singh as saying. “I don’t know what to do, it really hurts my heart…The first thing in my mind was that he might hurt me with some weapon.”
When Singh left, he assumed it was all over. But when he parked on a nearby side street, he says the white Holden pulled up once again and the racist rant, including the ‘n’ word, continued.
In the video, the White man can also be using racist term Faggot while pulling down his trouser.
