A viral video shows a white woman shouting racial slurs at two black men outside a Kansas City sports bar.
The unidentified woman was outside smoking a cigarette and talking on the phone when she started hurling racist abuse at the men walking past, and one of them recorded the encounter on his own phone, reported The Kansas City Star.
“So yesterday me and my homie Sam were out taking photos in the power and light district via KCMO when we overheard this lady say ‘these f*cking n*ggers’ when we walked by,” wrote one of the men, Drake Lewis, on Twitter. “I told her not to say that and then I started recording.”
Lewis and his friend laughed at the woman for using the slurs, and she continued her confrontation with the men.
“It is what it is,” the woman says. “I’m a white f*cking cracker, you a caramel n*gger.”
Video of the encounter was widely shared on social media, and Lewis said he was mystified by the incident.
“It was really random,” Lewis told the newspaper. “Me and my friend were just out taking photos and we were walking down the street talking about different stuff and we overheard the lady.”
Lewis said his friend, who is Samoan-American, confronted the woman and called her a “hick,” “cracker” and an “ugly b*tch” because he was tired of hearing racist abuse.
“He was outraged,” Lewis said.
A Facebook user claiming to be the woman’s employer confirmed to the Star that the woman had been fired, but asked to remain anonymous and declined to name the former employee.

Melania Trump ripped for bragging about helping children while her husband runs concentration camps for kids
Melania Trump was ripped on Monday for pushing her signature "Be Best" campaign against bullying while her husband, President Donald Trump, runs concentration camps for children along the southern border.
"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.
The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.
Border Patrol blocking Americans from donating toothbrushes and diapers for detained children
On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.
About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.
But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.
Michael Flynn’s legal team is making bizarre moves — signaling he’s still hoping for a Trump pardon
When disgraced former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn recently hired a new firebrand lawyer, Sidney Powell, it suggested he could be maneuvering to change his legal strategy.
And on Monday, new signs emerged that his legal team is looking to shake things up. Flynn had another status hearing on Monday before Judge Emmet Sullivan as he awaits sentencing for charges brought by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
In the hearing on Monday, Powell, who had been publicly critical of the Russia investigation before joining Flynn’s team, requested a security clearance to review documents in the case. This was a surprising move, because the government said that there was no classified information in the documents it had turned over to the defense.
