Torrance mayor condemned the racist woman's behavior saying "conduct like that displayed on the video cannot be tolerated."
A woman exercising in a public park had her day rudely interrupted by yet another racist white Karen screeching a profanity-laden tirade for using the stairs to work out. Videos making the rounds of the internet shows the elderly woman screaming "Go back to whatever (expletive) Asian country you belong in" and make multiple threats at the other woman. According to ABC7, the incident occurred Wednesday morning in Torrance, California, and was reported to city officials. Torrance mayor condemned the racist woman's behavior saying "conduct like that displayed on the video cannot be tolerated."

Karen's mid-week racist tirade seems to have been set off by the sight of the other woman exercising on a set of steps at the park while filming her workout. After walking up the stairs in between the woman's workout, the older woman comes back down the stairs moments later and seemingly bumps into her. "Jesus," the exercising woman muttered in annoyance at this rudeness which was all the prompt Karen needed to unleash her racist tirade that lasted for several minutes. "Listen to me. We don't play games here anymore. Next time you talk to me like that you're going to get your ass kicked by my family. They're gonna (expletive) you up," she yells.
I mean really in Torrance? If she doesn't like asians she is in the wrong damn city. Who wears black? Who wears a sweater. Why do ppl feel so entitled to speak like this? Your friend is much nicer than I would have been.— just me (@_justina_) June 11, 2020
When the younger woman asks what she did to deserve such words, the racist park-goer complains about her using the "whole stairs" for her workout. The athlete points out that there are plenty of other stairs nearby that she could've used instead of choosing to bump into her. As you can imagine, Karen wasn't too happy to hear someone throw logic at her. "This is not just for you. Get the (expletive) out of this state. Go back to whatever Asian country you belong in," she screams.
Because that’s what Karen’s do. They start stuff that they can’t handle and then they get dragged on social media and then play the victim. #MindYourDamnBusiness— SmileyB20 (@B20Smiley) June 11, 2020
"You (expletive). This is not your place, this is not your home. We do not want you here. Put that on Facebook. I hope you do. Because every (expletive) person will beat the crap out of you from here on out. Don't you ever say 'oh Jesus' to me when I want to use the stairs you little (expletive)," the foul-mouthed old lady continues as she walks away. Seemingly not satisfied with her performance, she stops midway to turn back and add this kicker: "Who wears black in California sun? Who the (expletive) wears black. Are you an idiot, you wear black in California sun? Seriously?"
#NEW: Mayor of @Torrance responds to a racist incident at a local park going viral tonight.— Veronica Miracle (@ABC7Veronica) June 11, 2020
“The Torrance Police Department is investigating and will determine the appropriate course of action... Conduct like that displayed on the video cannot be tolerated.” - Patrick Furey pic.twitter.com/YZmIPp9JCD
The video was shared online by a friend of the woman who faced the racist tirade. My friend was threatened in Wilson Park in Torrance, California today while she was working out in a public park by a Karen. She now does not feel safe to exercise in the park because of this. This is infuriating, she tweeted. Torrance Mayor Patrick Furey assured that the city is aware of the disturbing incident and that police are investigating. "Public safety is a high priority in the City of Torrance. And, all visitors to our open spaces should always feel safe and free to exercise while practicing social distancing without conflict," said Furey. "Conduct like that displayed on the video cannot be tolerated. We strive to deliver essential services to our community with integrity, honesty, and respect for all users."
Since the video being widely shared online, at least two other instances of what seems to be the same woman being racist have come out. One Twitter user revealed that she'd been attacked by this woman in a mall in October last year and that although she filed a police report at the time, nothing came out of it.
Another video shows the woman wearing the same outfit as in the park and going off on another racist rant at a man while his kids were in the car. Geez, Karen here has turned racism into a sport.
