Ashley Hall, who works as a security guard in San Mateo, California, was the target end of a racist rant and sexual innuendos after she asked a man to wear a mask.
"That's when things got really disrespectful. I've never had anyone disrespect me like that... 'Go back to Africa, go feed your own kids, come clean my house'... I felt all of a sudden how my people feel about everything," she told ABC7.
Making matters worse, Hall lost her father to the coronavirus back in May.
"I feel like the reason why I didn't disrespect him is because of my father. I can hear my dad say 'walk away, walk away,'" she said.
