A video showing a San Francisco Bay Area white woman telling a young Asian-American couple to go “back to their country” went viral on Facebook on Saturday.

Danika Aquino, posted a video of her friend Jenny Veladera being harassed in a Lucky Supermarket by an elderly white lady.

“Earlier today our close friends went to our local Lucky supermarket store in Daly City & as they were checking out this old racist, disgusting hag was behind them harassing them and making racist comments towards them,” Aquino wrote in her Facebook post.

In the video, the woman blames Asian-Americans for the country’s problems.

“They steal our food, our money and our jobs,” she said while mocking the couple.

“We got a family to feed,” the husband in the video said.

“So what! Go back to your country,” the woman replied.

Veladera also shared the video on her Instagram page saying she was furious because the situation happened in front of her daughter.

“Shopped Lucky Supermarkets, and this happened. I’ve never felt so angry and sad overall because I had my 5-year-old with me,” she said in her post.

Towards the end of the video the husband asks for the cashier to deny the woman service because of her racist rant.

People commented on Veladera’s post saying they noticed the woman from the area and have seen her racially harassing other people.

It is it unclear if the employee denied the woman service, and if Lucky Supermarket is aware of the video.

Ambassador Michael McFaul was interviewed Wednesday by MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell.

"How do you think this should play out, now that they are assembling step-by-step insider accounts with people who are bravely stepping forward, some giving up their careers, Mike McKinley and others having had to quit over this," Mitchell noted. "How do you think this plays out legally or in terms of the politics of impeachment?"

"Well, legally, I’ll defer to others who are more expert. I think what it does underscore is how grossly inept and just broken down the Trump foreign policymaking process is," McFaul replied.

"It was the Kurds who worked with the America military to destroy ISIS," Graham said. "If we abandon the Kurds, it will be dishonorable, it will be a disaster."
