Popular Instagrammer Under Fire For Racist Video About Asians Selling Cat Meat
A popular Instagrammer has recently come under fire for a racist video about Asians selling cat meat that he posted to his Instagram page.
In the video, the Instagrammer who goes by cool_ant, tries to convince an Asian woman to sell him cat meat.
“Next door said y’all had fried cat. I was trying to get fried cat.” — cool_ant
“Who said that?” — Woman
“Next door.” — cool_ant
At first, the woman looks confused by his request and tries to verify what he meant. When he kept asserting that he was told by the man next door that she sold cat meat, she becomes increasingly frustrated and upset.
“The carry out. I asked him. I said I want a fried cat and he said next door has it.” — cool_ant
“The guy said that? That’s crazy! He really said that?” — Woman
“I promise you, I’m not going to lie. I wouldn’t have come over here if he didn’t say that. I’m not even a disrespectful type of person.” — cool_ant
As he keeps pushing, the woman eventually decides it might be the best option to call the police on the made up guy next door.
“We’ll call the police on him.” — Woman
Although the video has now been deleted, it wasn’t fast enough for other people to take notice and repost it themselves.
