“Even the President of the United States says you’re a rapist.”
This new video has gone viral this week on social media. And it’s absolutely disgusting.
In this video, a hateful white woman verbally attacks a Mexican-American man while he’s doing yard work. The woman cited Donald Trump when she called him a “rapist” and an “animal.”
The man attacked in the video is Esteban Guzman, a 27-year-old systems administrator and a part-time landscaper. And he is an American. Guzman says that he was doing yard work with his mother, who shot the video, when this woman attacked him.
“Why do you hate us?” Guzman asks the woman after she attacked him.
“Because you’re Mexicans,” the woman says.
“We’re honest people right here,” Guzman says back.
“Yeah, rapists,” the woman continues. “Even the president of the United States says you’re a rapist.”
In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon on Monday night, Guzman said, “I’m not that person that, you know, that the president of the United States says I am. People look at me and they see what he said on TV and that’s not true. That’s not true for any of us.”
The video, which was posted on Monday, had more than two million views by Tuesday morning.
A friend, Esteban Guzman sent me this video of a racist white woman harassing him while out working with his mom.
"Why do you hate us?"
"Because you're Mexicans."
"We are honest people right here!"
"Haha..yeah.. rapists & animals."

Guzman told Lemon Monday night that he thinks people have been empowered to attack others, like he was attacked, because of Donald Trump.
“I feel like people are a little more entitled to say, ‘Hey … go back to Mexico,'” he told Lemon. “And I’m like, why? I live here. I have a mortgage here.”
