Two Brazilian men said they were filming a video for their YouTube comedy channel when an irate white woman pulled over because she mistook them for terrorists.
“I was filming a sketch for youtube in front of a local airport, when a racist woman stopped her vehicle on the side of the road and started calling my friend and I terrorists,” performer Uhoh Nick wrote on Facebook. “Being that I’m an inspiring filmmaker, I pulled out my camera and started recording the incident. I honestly never thought this would happen to me.”
In the video, the woman immediately begins hurling racial insults as soon as one of the men pulls out his cell phone to begin filming.
“I said you were a scum bag, you’re child pedophilers [SIC], faggot bitches that turn into terrorists,” she rants, adding several other anti-gay slurs. “You’re turning terrorists now because you hate yourself so much. Now you’re taking pictures in front a plane to remind you of 9/11.”
“You’re American terrorists!” the woman insists after exiting her SUV. “And God told me so. God is your brain and your brain.”
Peppering her rant with homophobic slurs, the woman yells at the two men about Jesus, 9/11, hoverboards before insisting that the two Brazilian men “are Middle Eastern” and then getting back in her vehicle.
“You want little Middle Eastern boys like you to get raped and go to hell!” she yells as she drives away.
Uhoh Nick lamented on his personal Facebook page that people “like her need to be shunned out of society, because that’s the mentality that keeps us from progressing.”
Raw Story requested clarification from Uhoh Monkey about whether this encounter was part of a comedy routine, but the performers did not respond by the time of publication.

Lindsey Graham promises Fox viewers a new investigation into Andrew McCabe despite the Justice Dept clearing him
Appearing on the Fox Business channel with host Maria Bartiromo, Sen.

MSNBC guest goes off on Chris Matthews for comparing Sanders to Nazis: ‘He had kin murdered in the Holocaust’
Time magazine editor Anand Giridharadas criticized MSNBC host Chris Matthews over the weekend for his alleged bias against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Giridharadas remarks came after Matthews compared Sanders' win in Nevada to a Nazi invasion.
"Last night was a historic win that I think a lot of us are still struggling to understand," Giridharadas explained. "It's historic because we may be seeing that we are paddling through a bend of a river in history here. Something is happening in America right now that actually does not fit our mental models."
‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.
During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.
"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."
