Warning: Offensive language below.

Over 37 million people in the United States speak Spanish, making it the most spoken non-English language in the country, and yet there are people who still find it offensive.

Hector Torres was on the phone, speaking in Spanish with his Puerto Rican mother, when a man began harassing him for it.

Torres told BuzzFeed that he overheard the man saying, "Trump is going to fix this. He doesn't understand this is Trump's America now," while he was on the phone with his mother, and that's when he started recording.

Torres recorded the incident in an airport in Reno, Nevada, where you can hear the man identified as "Mike" yelling racial slurs and obscenities.

Only 30 seconds into the recording, Mike says, "Fuck you! This fucking sp*c can kiss my ass." 

"Learn how to fucking speak English. We live in America," he yells at Torres as he becomes more irate.

"I did the crime of talking to my mother in Spanish because that's the language she speaks," Torres says. 

"It is a crime," Mike responds. Then he got physical when Torres asked him who he voted for.

It gets worse — and it makes sense why the video has over 5 million views.

Although people tried to get Mike to stop, he continued to verbally assault Torres.

Torres asked Mike to "explain what I did to you," to which Mike said:

"[You were] talking that fucking stupid Spanish around here when everybody else is a fucking English-speaking American."

He also began screaming the F-bomb at the top of his lungs to other people who tried to intervene.

And if you weren't pissed off yet, we're sure this will seal the deal: Mike told security that Torres was harassing HIM.


Torres told BuzzFeed that he recorded everything to protect himself, and it looks like it paid off. The officers said that they could arrest the man, but Torres didn't want to press charges.

Airport spokesperson Brian Kulpin also explained to BuzzFeed that they would be looking into it. 

"The incident went on a while before calls were made. We will be talking to witnesses who were there, reviewing how police handled it, and what we could have done differently. It was jolting to us, an airport culture, to see someone expressing hatred and racism like that in such a bizarre way," Kulpin said.

Unfortunately, what Torres experienced isn't uncommon.

Recently, a woman was caught on camera telling a Latino man that people need to "take him back to Mexico" and added that he was "so disrespectful for speaking another language in my country."
