An Asian man has been caught on camera hurling racial abuse at another Asian person and even threatening them with a bat over a parking spot.

The other driver remarked that he is going to “get him”, to which the Asian man spewed “I’m going to get you too, b*tch”. The other driver, who was just about to step back into his car, pointed at the angry driver and warned “you don’t want to do that!” before retreating to his vehicle. The angry driver, who had also pulled out his phone at this point, shouted at him, telling him to “get the f*ck out of my country, b*tch!”
