On her last day of work, one bus sightseeing tour guide in San Francisco apparently decided it was time to let everyone know how she really felt about the city’s Chinatown. It’s not pleasant.
Taken by some German tourists, the video footage shows the woman going off on a two-minute-plus tirade about North America’s oldest and largest Chinatown and her passionate hatred of all that lies within its walls, from the “little herb gardens” to the seafood markets to the “laundry hanging out the windows”.
“When you come to America you’ve gotta assimilate a little bit…and here in America, we don’t eat turtles and frogs, OK?” she tries to reason with the audience.
“This is a horrible place to live. If you are considering moving to San Francisco—although it’s the cheapest neighborhood—do not live here,” she continues. “These people wake you up at six in the morning…they make all this goddamned noise all the time…there’s too many of ’em out here.”
She concludes her speech in a tunnel with a bellowing, windblown chant of “Fuck Chinatown!” repeated by an enthusiastic chorus of tourists.
The woman and bus tour company have not yet been identified. We can only assume that she’s taking the show over to Los Angeles; back where things make sense again and where the Chinatown has “way better restaurants”.
