Ontario Woman's Racist Rant On Boxing Day Leads To Police Investigation (VIDEO)

Not long after a woman berated Shoppers Drug Mart employees in B.C. for not "speaking English" in front of her, another racist rant video in Canada is going viral. This incident reportedly took place at the Niagara Outlet Collection on Boxing Day. The Twitter video has gotten thousands of likes and retweets since it was posted on December 27.

"Name & shame this racist," reads the accompanying tweet,  posted by user Rob Gill. "This entitled racist white woman assaults an Asian family. Name her!"

The altercation appears to have started over a parking dispute. The woman in the video angrily confronts the person with the camera, shouting racial slurs and even shoving them.

The woman yells at them for claiming to not know what a signal is. "Even in China they have signals," she says.

The video ends with her calling 911 because the person with the cellphone allegedly "kicked" her. "You kicked me, and I'm calling 911 and I'm going to have you charged," she says. She then mocks their language.

Narcity has spoken with the Niagara Regional Police Service, who informed us that officers have been made aware of the video and an investigation has since been opened into the matter.

Police plan to release more information about the results of the investigation within the next 24 hours.

The Outlet Collection's marketing and tourism manager told the St. Catharines Standard that the woman who filmed the video first informed guest services about the incident. Security then reported it to police.

The woman who recorded the footage reportedly emigrated to Canada from China seven years ago. She was the one to post the original video on Facebook but has since taken it down.

Gill later tweeted that there are multiple reports claiming that the woman in the video is a teacher for the DSB Niagara, although this detail has yet to be confirmed.
