The video appears to begin shortly after the confrontation begins. The woman can be heard calling the man “psycho” and asking him to “take his meds”.
“I’m your boss. I employ you. I’m your boss,” he can be heard shouting repeatedly, before shouting the racial slur at him and trying to walk away.
As the man reacts, she repeats the insult several times before calling the driver a “slave”. The woman recording the video can be heard gasping and questioning the racist tirade.
The video has been viewed more than 2.8 million times on Twitter, with most viewers demanding police action against the woman while others try to identify her.
