Neighborhood revolts after dry cleaner says black ‘motherf**kers are more racist than anybody’
Protesters in Atlanta demanded a dry cleaner leave their neighborhood over the weekend after his racial rant was caught on video by a black customer.
Andy Foster told WXIA that he began recording Amin Chaudry, owner of Ben Hill Custom Cleaners, after he made racist comments in front of Foster’s 10-year-old son.
“Are you prejudiced?” Foster asks Chaudry in the video.
“Yeah,” Chaudry replies.
“What are you doing in a black neighborhood then?” Foster presses.
“F*cking asshole,” Chaudry gripes after Foster tries to pay for his dry cleaning with a credit card instead of cash. “Never come back again here.”
“Why do you have to curse at me?” Foster wonders. “You shouldn’t be prejudiced either in black neighborhoods.”
“You motherf*ckers are more racist than anybody,” Chaudry says. “I’ve been here 20 years.”
“You’re on video, I just want you to know,” Foster warns.
“Send it to Obama!” Chaudry shouts as he closes the drive-up window.
On Saturday, residents protesting outside Ben Hill Custom Cleaners called on Chaudry to leave the neighborhood.
Chaudry told WSB-TV that he was sorry for his comments, and that the protests had hurt his business.
The business owner warned that he has retained a lawyer and plans to take legal action.
