A woman in Australia launched a racist tirade against a group of Asian women after being “uncomfortable” hearing them speak in a language other than English.

The incident, which was caught on video, reportedly occurred at an intersection in the city of Fitzroy, Victoria this week.

The video begins with the woman, who is wearing a hat and a pair of sunglasses, yelling and pointing her finger at the group of Asians.

“Don’t speak so loud,” she tells the women, who then call her a “f*cking racist.”

“Oh shut up,” the woman snaps back. “There’s so many of you and you won’t speak English. Speak [English]!”

“You don’t need to push me to speak English,” one replies.

The woman doubles down by claiming that she would do the same if the situation were reversed.

“If I go to your country to work, I would learn your language,” she tells the group.

Shortly after, another pedestrian intervenes by pointing out that the woman does not speak for most people.

“Don’t listen, don’t listen,” she tells the women. “The majority of Australians and New Zealanders … don’t think like that.”

To this, the woman lashes out, “Oh, speak for yourself!”

The video has gone viral on Reddit, where it has now received more than 3,000 interactions and hundreds of comments.


“Imagine being able to speak just one language and blaming others for speaking another one. It just shows how self-centered one can be,” one user commented.

One asked, “How disappointing must her life have been that she has to haul off at complete strangers doing their own thing to feel better?”

“Out of all the crazies we see on this sub, the ‘Speak English!’ ranters have got to be the lowest, dumbest, most unhappy, uneducated a**holes,” another chimed in.
