VIDEO: Elderly Asian man attacked, humiliated while collecting cans in San Francisco neighborhood
By Tina Moore and Olivia Bensimon. March 5, pm Updated March 5, pm. Cops are investigating an alarming video of a man spraying Febreze at an Asian subway straphanger in an incident being investigated as a coronavirus-related hate crime, authorities said Thursday. A second video posted to Facebook , shows the Asian man confronting the sprayer, apparently after the incident.
The passenger was doused with Febreze for seemingly doing nothing more than simply standing next to the man who ranted for him to move away. A video on Twitter has detectives investigating a possible hate crime, after a subway passenger was seen berating an Asian man before spraying him with air freshener. The video shows the altercation on the N train in Brooklyn, with the angry straphanger yelling at the man to move away from him — an apparent act of discrimination based on the man's ethnicity. The subject of his tirade was an Asian man who appeared to be minding his own business on the train, and said nothing back to the man during the rant, and didn't move. When the passenger doesn't do what the enraged man told him to, the man sprays the air freshener Febreze in his direction for about 15 seconds.
