A San Fransicso, Bay Area white man called the cops on a man eating a burrito on the BART train. A video posted to Reddit, shows the man yelling at the passenger and threatening to call the cops if he does not stop eating.
“You can’t wait?” the man yelled at the passenger.
The guy ignored him and did not respond. However, he kept harassing the man for eating a burrito.
“The sign says no eating and drinking,” he said in the video. “You don’t get it. You must be stupid. I’ve seen people like you on TV.”
“I’ll get the police on board, how about that,” he continued. “Yes, can we get a policeman on board here,” he says into the intercom. “We’ve got someone dining in the first car.”
The other passengers on the train laughed at the man for being so upset. “You must not ride BART much?” one passenger said.
Other passengers encouraged the man to continue eating his food.
White people have made headlines in recent weeks for calling the cops on people for doing mundane tasks. There was #BBQBecky, who called the cops on a black family for barbecuing in the park. Also, there was a man nicknamed #JoggerJoe for harassing a homeless person.
Now, this man has been dubbed as #BurritoBilly for not minding his own business on the train.

Russia denies US news report it bombed 4 Syria hospitals in 12 hours
Russia on Monday denied a US newspaper report that its warplanes bombed four hospitals in rebel-held territory in Syria over a period of 12 hours this year.
The Russian defence ministry rubbished the claim in a report by The New York Times, saying "the alleged 'evidence' provided by the NYT is not worth even the paper it was printed on".
The May strikes -- which the newspaper tied to Moscow through Russian radio recordings, plane spotter logs and accounts by witnesses -- are part of a larger pattern of medical facilities targeted by forces supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the country's devastating civil war.
Black family arrested for ‘loitering’ on their own front lawn
On October 1, a black family was standing in the front yard of their home, when police approached. They were arrested for loitering even though they were on their own property, reports KYW news.
Loitering offenses have historically been used as a way to purge people seen as undesirable, such as the homeless, from public spaces.
Now, the family is demanding answers from the Chester Township Police Department in Pennsylvania.
"It's a terrifying thing. It makes me feel as though the police can knock down your door, and drag you out of your home at anytime," Rachel Briggs told KYW. "This is an incident that made me feel like I'm a prisoner in my own home," she added. Her sons and nephew were dragged off to jail, where they spent the night while the family scrambled to make their bail.
