A video appearing to show a white man engaged in a heated exchange with a Muslim man and his family at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal in Toronto is sparking outrage on social media.
Toronto police confirmed to Global News on Wednesday the incident took place Monday. They said officers responded to a call about an assault at the terminal around 6:30 p.m.
The encounter, which has received over 88,000 views on Facebook, begins as a man with blonde hair, wearing what appears to a burgundy Hawaiian shirt, walking towards another man and his family.
The exchange appears to start as a man with a beard makes a statement about the other man’s breath as they come face-to-face.
“Wow. Your breathe smells like alcohol,” he said.
The man in the Hawaiian shirt responds back with expletives.
“I don’t give a f—. You don’t tell me what to do in my province,” he said. “You don’t ask me a f—— question. It’s my f—— province.”
