    Most of his posts follow the same structure: He approaches an Asian restaurant where he places an order of “baby back rat,” cats and other offensive Asian food stereotypes. The man then proceeds to ask why he never sees meat trucks delivering at their restaurant.

    “I still NEED A ORDER OF BABY BACK RATS, but Has anyone Ever Seen A Delivery Truck Deliver Meat To a Chinese Restaurant?” he wrote in one of his posts.

    It turns out that the creator of the videos has been following the same routine for over a year, using  the same lines every time.

    In the video, the Instagrammer hit someone with an egg. The victim of the harassment spoke up through his social media post, saying that it was a “really bad day” for him, Gotdangtv reported.

    The “comedian” also harasses others working at places such as fast-food chains and supermarkets by smoking marijuana inside the stores.

    Similar social media content where Asians are targeted for harassment, discrimination or even acts of violence, some fatal, out of xenophobia and racism have been on the rise since the outbreak of COVID-19 and it’s perceived relation to Asian ethnicities has sparked panic worldwide.

    Communities everywhere are urged to look out for one another, especially the elderly, and to help stop instances of violent racism and xenophobia against the Asian American community.
