TikToker Lycheemarteenee went viral after sharing an incident where she dealt with a racist. The woman took to the video-sharing platform to reveal a black woman hurled endless insults at her after the former defended an elderly Asian businessman.

Internet users have since taken to social media to express their contempt over the incident.

Lycheemarteenee uploaded a video of the racist altercation to TikTok. A screen recording of the video has gone viral on Reddit. In the video, Lycheemarteenee, an Asian woman, is at a gas station on Capitol Hill in Seattle.

The black woman hurling insults at the TikToker can be seen bragging that being racist is “not against the law”. She added:

“Go eat your dog with rice.”

The TikToker proceeded to record the woman’s license plate while the racist woman continued to slam her with slurs. At one point in the video, the racist can be heard saying-

“Go back to your county, b***h.”

Before walking away from the place, the woman says, “Go do some nails or some toes or something, b****.”

THIS IS ASIAN HATE: We don’t know when #SeattleCapitol Hill happened, but the video was posted recently. Asian Americans continue to be subjected to this behavior. It’s just NOT reported. Angry Woman lists just about every stereotype and slur. #StopAsianHate

Lycheemarteenee explained in a follow-up video on TikTok that she decided to confront the racist woman after the latter was rude to an old Asian man at the gas station. The TikToker claimed the woman threw money in the attendant’s face after he didn’t immediately provide her with help.

Lycheemarteenee then resorted to confronting the racist woman for her actions, which led to the latter being verbally abusive.


Netizens react to Lycheemarteenee’s interaction with the racist

Netizens were horrified to watch the video. Many felt sorry for the TikToker and said that, unfortunately, such interactions are normal in Seattle. Several netizens criticized the racist woman and felt sorry for her alleged children, who also appeared in the video. A few tweets read:

@choeshow It’s not new. It’s been going on for decades in Seattle and Tacoma.

@choeshow Oh my god this is terrible. I used to work on the street and often stopped at this Shell station. I can’t imagine being rude to this nice old man.

@choeshow So there was less than zero justification for the incident. The woman was just angry, she had to wait. Charming.

@choeshow I’m sorry it happened to that woman defending the cashier at the gas station. I would’ve done the same thing. No need for hate in this world. Life is hard enough already. I’m glad this woman is front and center on social media. Karma will find her.

@choeshow This person hurled racial slurs despite looking like a typical lower social class citizen. Pretty much the scum and badness you could think of.

Racist woman throws rocks at journalist

After Lycheemarteenee’s interaction at the gas station went viral on social media, a local reporter managed to get his address. He then appeared at her property and asked her if she wanted to explain her side of the story. At one point during their interaction, the woman claimed she had no regrets about using racial slurs against the TikToker.

The reporter then registered the woman’s car to indicate that he was trying to interact with the same racist woman. However, she continued to swear at the reporter and asked him to leave their residence. She also accused the TikToker of using the N-word against her.

However, the same has not been clarified by either the reporter or TikToker. It is also important to note that a video of the racist TikToker was not available online at the time of writing this article.

In the next part of the video, the woman can be seen chasing the reporter from his residence. In one section of the video, the woman throws a rock at the reporter and walks away.
