It’s 2019 and racism is still rampant in many parts of the world. While reports and videos of racist acts in United States surface on the internet on a regular basis, a new case involving a Mexican woman and an American woman has garnered a lot of attention on social media.
While racist acts often require police intervention in the US, some people have the unique gift of combating comments with their wit, humor and savage one-liners.
Such was the case when an American woman tried acting smart with an elderly Mexican woman.
The entire incident was witnessed by Twitter user @jeylzzle who was serving the Mexican woman at a coffee shop.
As described on Twitter, a woman in a wheelchair came up behind the elderly Mexican woman and said, “We’re in America, why don’t you speak English?”
To which the elderly lady savagely replied, “You have legs, why don’t you walk?”
Here’s the tweet narrating the incident:
The tweet has over 3.28 lakh reactions and over 73,000 retweets.
Jeylzzle was so impressed with the comeback, he offered the elderly woman free coffee.
The tweet, which was written on December 26, has now impressed thousands of netizens.
Here are some reactions:
One user wrote, “Lool I hope I’m this level of savage and smart one day you go lil Mexican lady.”
