The California woman who said she was the victim of a “hate crime” for wearing Google Glass eyewear in a bar released a profanity-filled video taken just before her dispute with patrons became physical.

“I wanna get this white trash, this trash on tape for as long as I can,” tech writer Sarah Slocum said in the video, apparently shot before she was attacked last month at Molotov’s, a bar in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

In response, an unidentified man can be seen approaching her, saying, “Get out of here,” then reaching for the eyewear.

Slocum reported having her purse and phone stolen during the incident, as well as briefly losing the $1,500 glasses. She stated at the time that she was showing a friend how they worked, but the 81-second video showed her insulting other patrons.

“These f*ckin’ b*tches are, like, hating on it right now,” Slocum said, pointing at a group standing at the bar. “I can’t even believe it. They’re throwing, like, f*cking rags at me.”

She then approached one woman, calling her an “ugly-ass b*tch” and pointing at her. The woman then leaned forward and told Slocum, “You’re killing the city” before reaching for the glasses.

“You’re a b*tch,” Slocum responded. “Don’t touch me. I’ll f*cking sue you.”

The woman backs away after calling Slocum a “boring-ass b*tch,” but Slocum’s hand is then seen “flipping the bird” toward both her and a group of patrons.

“These crazy-ass people, dude,” Slocum then said. “I don’t f*cking give a sh*t.”

The Los Angeles Times reported on Monday that no arrests have been made in connection with the incident, and that Slocum was also hit with a restraining order in 2012 after admitting to using her cell phone to record her neighbors’ conversations.

The Times also reported that the woman who confronted Slocum in the video was an off-duty bartender at Molotov’s, who disputed Slocum’s claim that she only began recording the other patrons after she was threatened.
