A video coming out of the Bay Area has gone viral, capturing a racist rant by a San Francisco tech CEO aimed at an Asian family at a local restaurant.
Raymond Orosa and his family were having dinner at Lucia “just celebrating, having fun,” when he says he heard incendiary language coming from the next table. As a result of the video’s virality, Lofthouse came forward and issued an apology for his actions. “My behavior in the video is appalling. This was clearly a moment where I lost control and made incredibly hurtful and divisive comments,” he said. “I would like to deeply apologize to the Chan family. I can only imagine the stress and pain they feel. I was taught to respect people of all races, and I will take the time to reflect on my actions and work to better understand the inequality that so many of those around me face every day.”
