Korean Woman Verbally Harassed in French Train

June 10, 2020

This incident occurred on June 6 on Tram Line 2 in Nice, France around 9 pm. The Korean woman wishes to remain anonymous, using only her screen name LilaLila. She has been working and studying in France for a year.

She was able to capture most of the verbal confrontation with her smartphone. A Frenchman of African descent sitting in front of the Lila and her companion began verbally insulting her after staring at her for a few minutes.

The Frenchman first began by speaking to her in a mock Chinese accent and saying Lila brought the coronavirus to France. He called her Chinese and screams “The disease came from your country!”

Lila replies “You racist.”

The Frenchman then replies to Lila’s companion “Are you her boyfriend? You have balls or not? Remove your mask. Nothing to say? You are a bitch! Nothing to say?”

There are multiple people on the train and no one does or says anything. The Frenchman begins to scream repetitive insults at Lila “You’re Chinese, the disease came from you country! You eat cats and dogs!”

A Good Samaritan eventually walks in front of the cursing Frenchman and tells him to stop. He replies by pointing his finger at Lila and calls her a “whore.” You can see other passengers smiling and laughing in the background.

The Good Samaritan tries to calm the situation down, but the cursing Frenchman wouldn’t relent.

The irate Frenchman then begins to demand Lila stop filming and warns her he is a violent man, after telling her he’s actually a very kind man a few moments earlier. The Frenchman then begins to threaten to take the phone from Lila by force and the clip ends. Also note, Lila’s male companion is sitting next to her and doesn’t do anything, even after the Frenchman walks right in front of her.

  1. Even today, scientists do not find evidence that the Virus was spread from China. Yet, there are so many racist Westerners chosen to believe the biggest liar, Trump and insult the Asian and Chinese.

    These peoole not oy racist and stupid. Euro is badly hit all because of these brainless people. And certain more of these brainless people infected will make the world better.

  2. Most French people like Asian people have no issues whether you’re Korean, Chinese, or Japanese. This guy has mental issues. It might have been better to avoid him when he was whispering “chinois”, “chinois” and to move, but I can understand the reaction to defend your pride, but honestly he is mentally unstable and has problems. I am sorry that she had such problems there, and all the French people I know like Koreans and many find Korea interesting.

    1. People needs to stand up against racism. And Asian guy should have at least try to fight hhim somehow. These animals will continue doing so until they will understand that they will be punished

  3. He’s just bitter and resentful, and should DIE MAD. You can tell he has NOTHING to lose, and he has to hate on people with lives worth living.
