Tech CEO Apologizes After Viral Video Captures His Racist Rant At Asian Family
quote:

Michael Lofthouse, the CEO of a San Francisco-based tech company, Solid8, apologized on Tuesday after he was caught on camera making racist comments to an Asian family at a California restaurant, saying he “lost control and made incredibly hurtful and divisive comments.”

Lofthouse told an Asian family holding a birthday celebration at a restaurant in Carmel, California, that“Trump's gonna f**k you. You f*****g need to leave. You f*****g Asian piece of s**t,” a video of the incident shows.

In an Instagram post, Jordan Chan, the woman who recorded the video, said her family was singing happy birthday and taking pictures when Lofthouse started speaking to them.

An employee at the restaurant then stepped in between Lofthouse and the family, saying, “You do not talk to our guests like that. They are valued guests. Get out!" She then escorted him off the property.

In a statement to a local ABC affiliate, Lofthouse apologized: “My behavior in the video is appalling. This was clearly a moment where I lost control and made incredibly hurtful and divisive comments. I would like to deeply apologize to the Chan family. I can only imagine the stress and pain they feel. I was taught to respect people of all races, and I will take the time to reflect on my actions and work to better understand the inequality that so many of those around me face every day."

Safe to say the dude was drunk and that was his real self? He is only sorry because he got caught on video.

Sounds like the premise to a Silicon Valley episode.

You have to have some deep seeded issues to call a random family “Asian pieces of shit” in public

He sounds like a shitty person.

He also doesn't seem to understand that Trump likes the Asian immigrants. Now, if they were Salvadoran...

No kidding, especially since he probably has a bunch of Asian people working for him.

He'll be fired and float away on his golden parachute.

These cases usually don't make it to the OT even though they are in the national news. Just another drop in the bucket.

Is it odd for a tech company to not even have a website?

Asians are with whites on the bottom of the social justice totem pole. It’s ok to discriminate against them

Too bad it wasn’t a Jewish family cause then he would be fine.
