A scuffle reportedly broke out at a Los Angeles area restaurant on Sunday after a white man became impatient and referred to a black customer as “monkey man.”

The video, which was posted to Reddit on Monday, had nearly 30,000 “upvotes” by Tuesday.

A Twitter user named @IvanCyclist claimed responsibility for the video and posted a message explaining what happened.

According to the account, the white man became angry at the restaurant’s hostess because people with reservations were seated ahead of him.

“At one point calling the hostess a ‘dumb bitch’ for requesting him again to wait to be seated,” the witness wrote. “He doesn’t understand the modern waitlist… A shouting match ensues between the guy (white) and two other patrons (black)… You can hear the white guy shouting racial remarks at them repeatedly.”

The words “monkey man” can be heard on the video.

At one point, the white man charges into the restaurant and his pushed back by customers. Soon after, a black woman can be seen punching the white man four or five times before the video ends.

“This is when the Black Female lands 5, yes FIVE clean shots to the man’s face,” the Twitter message adds.

In the end, police were said to have charged the man causing the disruption with four citations. The black woman who hit him reportedly received one citation.

FBI surveillance of Trump aide reflects flaws in secretive FISA system that mostly targets Muslims

Published

Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz said Wednesday the FBI should have considered halting its surveillance of Trump’s campaign aide Carter Page months before it did, after it was revealed that accusations against him may not be credible. Horowitz made the comments while testifying to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, saying the FBI used false information to obtain approval to wiretap Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and raising wider concerns about the agency’s use of surveillance. He testified a day after the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court — known as the FISA Court — issued a public order accusing the FBI of misleading the court to gain approval to wiretap Page, and ordering the FBI to propose changes in how its investigators seek permission for domestic surveillance of U.S. citizens by January. Last week, Horowitz issued a first report finding a series of inaccuracies and omissions in the FBI’s surveillance application process. We speak with Ashley Gorski, staff attorney with the National Security Project at the American Civil Liberties Union.

The video was first captured by a Kurdish news agency, the AP said in a report on Monday.

“Like rats, America is running away,” one man shouted in Arabic. Another shouted obscenities and talked of babies in Kurdish-held Syria who had died in the Turkish offensive.

The scene encapsulated the Kurds’ feelings of betrayal and added a new indignity to a US withdrawal that has been rushed and involved several close brushes with Turkish-backed forces.
