In the latest viral display showing racism is alive and well in America, a road rage incident led to Charles Geier screaming at Janet Espejel while she was driving with her young child.
Espejel recorded the incident that is believed to have occurred in Houston. After uploading the video to her Facebook on Thursday afternoon, the video received over two million views.
In the video, Espejel comes to a stop next to Geier. “You’re driving in two laves you stupid bitch!” Geier goes on to say, “That’s not how we drive in America. Trump’s deporting your illegal cousins today, bitch.”
Geier repeatedly calls Espejel a “bitch.” When Esperjel tries to ask if Geier voted, he responds, “Learn English bitch.” Geiger also says this is his country and tells Esperjel to “get out.”
At what point, Geier tells Esperjel to “keep taking pictures bitch,” apparently unaware she was actually recording the shameful behavior. It would seem Geier is now learning the meaning of the saying, “be careful what you wish for.” Since going viral, Geier has deleted his social media.
One of the biggest trends on social media has become shaming racists, assholes, and anyone social media users catch being all around terrible people. Geier. While some believe social media is just this thing that has no power in the real world, that logic could not be further from the truth.
The reality is that after these people go viral their lives are changed forever. They are typically fired from their job, exiled by their friends, and are even forced out of their homes. It is common practice for social media users to begin releasing personal information on the people in the videos, such as home address, workplace, and even phone numbers… and then there are the death threats.
