Jon Nguamsanith is a Laotian-American who manages a men’s grooming shop in Reston Town Center, Virginia. Recently he was victim of a racist by a white man claiming to be a Trump supporter.
Nguamsanith uploaded the video of the incident on Facebook, which has since gone viral. At one point in the video, the man asks him if he is a legal citizen in this country.
To get more context of what happened, NextShark reached out to Nguamsanith. He explained:
“I manage a men’s grooming shop within ten feet of where I was smoking a cigarette and I hear the white gentleman yelling, ‘Get the f*ck out of my country!’ but was unsure who he was talking to being that there were three other guys sitting outside.
“Then he yelled out, ‘I would kill all you mother f*ckers!’ so I asked him who he was talking to. He then got up off his chair and said I’m talking to you. At this time I was not recording. He then proceeded to walk my way and I warned him not to walk towards me. That’s when I called my guys out the shop just in case he decided to get violent since security wasn’t around. That’s when I decided to record everything just in case I had to defend myself.”
According to Nguamsanith’s account, the man allegedly said that he voted for Donald Trump and that hewas going to “take care of all you motherf*ckers” before security finally showed up. Eventually the man walked off but was arrested by the police soon after.
“Security just asked for my name and number,” Nguamsanith said. “As far as I know this idiot was probably released for disturbing the public and not charged with making threats or attempting to assault me.”
Nguamsanith and his family immigrated to Reston, Virginia in 1979 and says he’s never experienced this kind of treatment in his life.
