WATCH: What a Nightmare as Teen Assaulted for Wearing MAGA Hat at Whataburger
WARNING: This video contains language that may be offensive to some viewers.
A video has gone viral after a teenager out for a meal with his friends at around 2 a.m. at a Texas Whataburger was assaulted by a grown man.
The man was apparently set off by the teen’s MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat.
The teen, obviously a Trump supporter, had the hat ripped from his head and the man then threw a large soda in the kid’s face.
The attack was then followed up by the man yelling expletives at the teen and his friends as he walked out of the restaurant with the hat saying, “It’ll look good in my fireplace."
So went out for a 2am snack and my friend (wearing a MAGA hat) had his hat stolen and a drink thrown in his face (and mine, you can see my arms on the left of the video) pic.twitter.com/B3QjBFIxPk— Brax🕊 (@brxpug) July 4, 2018
People are outraged, calling for the man, identified as Kino Jimenez, to be arrested for the assault. The man was fired from his job after the video hit the internet. The bar Jimenez worked for released a statement condemning his actions.
The teen, Hunter Richard, says he is perfectly willing to have a conversation about politics but, for it to come to that was ridiculous and unnecessary.
