A video posted on Facebook showing an Asian-American hurling verbal abuses in English at a bus driver who failed to stop at his destination in Taoyuen, Taiwan, has triggered public fury.
The man, identified as Jason, and his pregnant Taiwanese wife pressed the alert bell late, resulting in the pair missing their stop, according to the report. Jason began scolding and physically intimidating the bus driver, who said he’d done nothing wrong.
A group of elderly passengers attempted to pacify Jason while one person threatened to report him to the police, prompting the irate man to shout at the passengers to “shut the fuck up”. The man’s wife stood by her husband all the while and translated.
After being persuaded by others onboard the bus, Jason and his wife got off in a huff, knocking the vehicle loudly before leaving.
Netizens are furious over the man’s behavior and requested for him to make a public apology. They also criticized his wife for not ‘standing up for the Taiwanese’.
