People are loving this woman’s savage takedown of the racist who told her to speak English
Two wrongs don’t typically make a right, but in this case we’ll make an exception.
We say this after someone called @jeylzzle shared this story on Twitter about an elderly Mexican woman’s response to a racist who told her to speak English.
me and this lil ol mexican lady were talking in spanish and this old white bitch in a wheelchair said “we’re in america why dont you speak english” and the lil mexican lady told her “you have legs why dont you walk”
I nearly died. I gave her free coffee

And by the look of the number of people who shared or liked it on Twitter, we weren’t the only ones to appreciate it.
Here’s just a selection of the things people said about it.
The coffee beans weren't the only things that got roasted…

I'm a wheelchair user and normally I’d take issue with dragging on someone for their disability, but this person brought it on themselves. Well done you.

I’ll NEVER understand why anyone degrades someone that’s bilingual. Like these awesome people speak TWO languages ya jerkoff. You CANT! Clearly, it’s fear and inner patheticness that causes such disrespect. I wish I could talk in other languages. Makes me happy af to overhear♀️
