Shocking footage has emerged of a white woman in a headscarf hurling racist abuse at an Asian cafe worker clearing tables.
The woman was caught on camera hurling insults at the waiter on Sunday morning while he was working at The Coffee Club in Top Ryde Shopping Centre, in Sydney’s northwest.
‘This is my country so f**k off Asian,’ she yelled.
‘Get away you f***ing Asian, get away you f***ing Asian’.
The footage, which was filmed by an onlooker and shared to Reddit, showed the man trying to clean a table as the woman spewed the vile insults at him.

‘[The] worker attempted to clear a table and was met with a barrage of racist insults towards his Asian ethnicity (Chinese, virus-spreading, etc),’ the video caption read.
‘Pretty sad to see, especially in Sydney Australia.’
The woman, dressed in a beige headscarf, then wheeled her luggage out from the table and walked away from the waiter.
Another man, who was off camera, told the woman to ‘calm down’ but was also told to ‘f**k off’.
The video has received more than 200 comments with many taking aim at the woman and saying her behaviour was ‘nasty’ and vile’.
‘As a white Australian male, I feel deeply disgusted and embarrassed for her behaviour,’ one person wrote.
Under the 1975 Racial Discrimination Act, offensive comments in a public place made to insult, humiliate, offend or intimidate another person on the basis of their race is considered unlawful.
