A Texas bar fired a man who allegedly stole a Make America Great Again hat and threw a drink in a Trump supporter’s face on Wednesday.
Rumble, a bar in San Antonio, released a Facebook statement after a video of the harassment went viral. The bar denounced the part-time employee’s behavior toward 16-year-old Hunter Richard at a local Whataburger restaurant.
“THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE!” the post read. “No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here!”
The video went viral after Patricia Thompson Spittler, a mom of one of Richard’s friends, posted the video on Facebook, asking people to “Please help ID this ‘Scum BAG of the Year!’”
In the video, Jimenez yanked off Richard’s Make America Great Again hat and said, “This is gonna go right in my f**king fireplace, b*tch.” Richard claimed that some of his hair was pulled out during the confrontation to Fox 29 San Antonio.
Later on, the Jimenez told Richard, “You ain’t supporting s*it n****” and threw a drink in his face.
Richard found Jimenez’s acts unproductive and unnecessary.
“I support my President, and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” said Richard to Fox 29 San Antonio. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”
Police are currently investigating the incident, according to Fox 29 San Antonio.
