This is the shocking moment a blonde woman is caught on camera throwing goods around a Chinese shop in Spain and racially insulting a female sales assistant.
The incident, filmed by other customers, took place in the town of Archena in the south-eastern Spanish region of Murcia and was branded a racist hate crime on social media.
The footage begins with the woman, wearing a black top with a leopard skin print, angrily hitting a plastic tray at the checkout and sending goods flying.
The sales assistant, who according to local media is Chinese, approaches the woman – who was reportedly drunk – and asks her to leave the shop but that only makes her more angry.
The blonde woman shouts: “F*ck you! Don’t touch me or I will beat you up!”, before calling her a “little Chinese woman” and adding: “I am a Spanish woman, do not forget it.”
And she adds: “Call the police as I am going to report you and your f*cking mother… You know why? Because you do not have rights… Because you are here scheming, scheme, scheme, scheme.”
The footage was later shared on Twitter where it received thousands of comments, with many outraged netizens accusing the blonde woman of racism.
It was linked by some to the rise of the far-right Vox political party which recently won 12 parliamentary seats in regional elections in nearby Andalusia.

Netizen ‘claucastlee’ said: “The girl has patience and strength… I see a crazy woman like this and I would be too scared or start punching her.”
‘Boreascrunia’ commented: “The problem is that she is Chinese and the other one Spanish. If the girl had raised her hand the headline would have been ‘Spanish woman attacked by migrants’.”
And ‘Strellita74’ added: “Sorry but if this woman is mad, and is like this in life, she should be hospitalised, nobody has to tolerate those things.”
There is no report on whether the incident is being investigated by police.
