When the woman tried to flee the scene in a taxi, Ha’s husband confronted her about her words.

Mr. Lee said, “Honestly, I felt that enough was enough, especially with all the madness going on with Asians being targeted with constant hate crimes. These things need to be called out and people need to know that they can’t get away with this. This is not the norm and people need to know that.”

Lee retorts with “Did you just say ‘Go back to communist China, b*tch?’”, to which the woman asks, “Well isn’t that where you’re from?”

Ha’s Instagram post detailed that she didn’t want such behaviour to be excused.

“We mention that she’s on camera and starts covering her face. At this point, I want to make sure people know there is zero-tolerance for this type of behaviour and cannot be condoned,”

The couple has since filed a police report with witness accounts from passers-by to aid their complaint.

“We need to speak up and voice our opinion about all the hate going on right now. We need to make sure there is an end to this,” they said. “By making sure there is exposure, judgement, and punishment for the racist lady’s malicious, racist actions, I hope that we can progress toward this goal of ending this hate." The couple also added they hoped bystanders would instead become allies and speak up as well. "We understand it is challenging to get involved in situations like this, but we think having visible allies and showing these perpetrators that they’re the odd man or woman out in these situations is important,"

People in her comment section echoed that sentiment.
