  • YouTuber Joseph Morris claims the woman is Shauna Nicol Foreman, and that the two parties reportedly got into a dispute over the loudness while caring for their lawn.
  • “He lied about his mom — you know what, you little b**ch? Are you recording me? Because you did not tell me you were recording me,” Foreman said.
  • The man taking the video informed her that she is “being recorded,” adding, “I can record you.”
  • “You cannot record me without telling me,” Foreman replies. “Welcome to Oregon. Maybe you should go back to Philippines, where you belong.”
  • Oregon law states: “It is legal to record telephone conversations with the consent of at least one party, but recording in-person conversations requires the consent of all parties except for in certain circumstances, such as when all parties reasonably should have known they were being recorded.”
  • Foreman then calls the couple the N-word after spewing anti-Asian sentiment at them.
  • The videographer informed Foreman that the video would go online, to which she replied, “I don’t care. [Unintelligible] calls him a white n****r every day” while pointing to the man in the olive T-shirt.
  • When confronted, the man in the olive shirt tries to distance himself from Foreman and told the couple he did not say the N-word.
