Woman at centre of racist controversy in Richmond gets bombarded with criticism on Facebook

Straight 2019-08-25 03:25:12

A large number of social-media users are telling a woman off after she berated an Asian woman in a Richmond parking lot and urged her to go back to China.

Carla Waldman told CBC News today that she doesn't care what people are calling her and insisted that she's not a racist person.

This came after an Instagram post showed her calling a woman of Asian ancestry a "Chinky Chinky China lady" and saying "we hate you people."

Waldman's interpretation that she's not racist isn't shared by many who've commented on her Facebook page.

The controversy arose after the Asian woman, Amy Xu, filmed Waldman's outburst after their cars came in contact in the parking lot.

RCMP are looking into the situation.
