Man Tells Asian Family to ‘Go Back to Your Country’

July 6, 2020

This incident happened to Instagram user @jordanlizchan in a restaurant in Carmel Valley, California over the weekend. These are her words as well as smartphone footage of the incident on her Instagram account.

“This is the face of the man who relentlessly harassed my family and I completely UNPROVOKED, UNWARRANTED, and UNCONSCIONABLE. We were celebrating my tita’s birthday, literally just singing happy birthday to her and taking pictures, when this white supremacist starts yelling disgusting racist remarks at us. (“Fuck you Asians” “Go back to whatever fucking Asian country you’re from” “You don’t belong here”)

❗️❗️❗️SHARE THIS POST❗️❗️❗️ Trigger warning: Racism, Vulgar Language (FYI he had a LOT more to say after I stopped recording) This is the face of the man who relentlessly harassed my family and I completely UNPROVOKED, UNWARRANTED, and UNCONSCIONABLE. We were celebrating my tita’s birthday, literally just singing happy birthday to her and taking pictures, when this white supremacist starts yelling disgusting racist remarks at us. (“Fuck you Asians” “Go back to whatever fucking Asian country you’re from” “You don’t belong here”) It is no coincidence that this man has the audacity to showcase such blatant racism on the 4th of July. White supremacy has a notorious habit of masquerading as patriotism! The fact that Donald Trump is our president (i.e. THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD) gives racists a platform and amplifies voices of hate. The surfacing of racists is so prevalent right now, even in such an ethnically/culturally diverse and liberal state like California, because Trump HIMSELF uses his position to incite racial tension and to promote aggression towards POC, foreigners, and immigrants. We need change! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE VOTE THIS UPCOMING RE-ELECTION. PROTECT ALL PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF SKIN COLOR AND ETHNIC ORIGIN. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

The man is identified as British-born Michael Lofthouse, CEO of Solid8. Compliments to the waitress who wasn’t having any of it and immediately told the man to “Get out!”

      1. Hes the Founder and CEO of Solid 8, not like it’s going to affect his business but maybe we bomb Solid 8’s page on Linked In and make it very uncomfortable for him? Oh, and this is his email – [email protected]

      2. if you go on reddit you can find his personal mobile #, his last address, his (ex-) coworker/partner/employee’s names / emails / addresses … but the company is/was just a 2 person contract consulting shop and the website is nothing but a placeholder now. he’s been shamed into deleting his ig and linkedin accounts and changed his fb name and profile pic (to a black lab) but his url is still michael.lofthouse.1 so it’s pretty silly to try and hide the account as a guy named “jack hat” … most racists aren’t very smart. he’s certainly proved that to be the case here.

      1. ONCE AGAIN NO BLACK MALES IN THE ROOM. 💩💩HITS HARD WHEN THEM WARRIORS ARE AROUND..✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾🖕🏾🐽👻👻💩💩💩

    1. This behaviour was outrageous and cruel. He should be dealt with by the authorities for his hateful action. There is no place in the U.S. or Canada for this kind of racist attack!

    1. @mlofty8 on Instagram -his account should be reported for “bullying/harassment,” he’s still coming after the woman who posted the video.

    2. He is from San Francisco, everyone in SF hates trump. There you go liberal peeps. Stop threatening us filipinos!!

  1. His name is Michael Lofthouse, and he’s the owner of a Bay Area company called Solid8. Let’s make sure everyone knows what a disgusting, racist pig he is!! Let’s help him lose all of his customers!

    1. Exactly, if this guy is from SF, you cant blame trump on this, everybody in SF hates trump. There you go, Democrats stop using this hate stories to ruin Trump. We have the strongest economy with the POTUS. I condemn racism but dont use your stories to hate TRUMP either. Hating is not good in any form.

      1. What are you talking about? He literally cites Trump in his racist rant. Did you not watch the video or something? Try again. And the economy is trash.

        1. We all know people in SF hates Trump. Cite him being racist but to blame Trump for his actions, i dont think so. I watched the video, just because he mentioned trump it means blame it on Trump. Liberal people have this negative agenda all the time. Same as this guy lol . Before Covid, we had the strongest economy in history, the flu came
          obviously from China, so blame China that all of us Asians are being treated like this, dont blame trump lol

          1. Well Trump probably didn’t make him a racist, but he certainly made this Brit think that it’s okay to go on a disgusting racist rant.

            Also, not only is COVID19 not the flu, but it most likely DID NOT come from China.
            Experts have discovered that the oldest strain of the virus CAME FROM USA, which means it spread FROM THE USA to China and the rest of the world.

        2. I find this whole story very fishy. Ms Chan took a lot of time to berate Trump as part of her indignation at this man. The man also made insulting remarks against Trump when he attacked this family. I sense this incident might be a coordinated attack against Trump using the racial hatred of Asians.

      2. Marian, seriously? Seriously?????!!! Another dumb Trump supporter comes running once they hear the word TRUMP… THIS IS FAKE NEWS RIGHT?!! Dude, you so stupid, I wish he discriminated you so I can just sit back with my cigar and laugh in your fkn face!! OMFG! You guys just get dumber by the minute. lol ahhahhah

      3. wtf are you talking about? what race-baiting world leader (hint: it’s the current potus) encourages racism and says “there’s very good people” among white supremacists? you’re a dolt if you think “the economy” (which was the stock market which impacts the 1% most) is a reason to vote for trump.

    1. Xenophobia In The Making, But This Pimp, M.Lofthouse Without Any Real Reason Provoked Those Party People, He Needs “The Shrink” ASAP

    1. That company only have 1 employee and that’s him!! It’s not even a company, the website was developed by a 10 year old. Even my 10 year old can develop a better website with better content than his trash ass website.

  2. I think his name might actually be Daniel Michael Lofthouse. I would hazard to guess that if you were to do an Ancestry or other DNA site search for him.. he turns out NOT to be ‘pure white’ LOLOLOLOL

  3. Yep, trump did this, it is all his fault. being Asian, i’ve met morons like this well before trump and I don’t blame him, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush or Reagan. The first time I was called a chinamen was from a latin male when Carter was president. I guess Cater provided a platform for him too.

    1. It’s not right to blame our POTUS for this and other white racist’ actions. Blame them not the president. Im sorry you have to go through this, I know how it feels, I was told to go back to cambodia and I’m not even cambodian , i didnt blame Trump though, its not him its just these uneducated white trash kind of people.

      1. Marian, you are delusional… Now really, go back to your country!! Seriously, go back. We need less of you people in this country.

  4. What was the name of the restaurant that had a employee with some backbone. I want too take my family there!!

  5. You’re right the guy was an asshole..
    But the president got nothing to do with him being that..we are all individuals that has different characters that define us.

    1. Wrong. The guy specifically referenced Trump: “Trump’s gonna f*** you.” So yes, Trump has something to do with this. Racists take solace and find support in Trump as president because Trump is a racist.

  6. He was at a table for ONE…. goes to show what kind of a lonely, envious, selfish, sorry-a$$ idiot he is as well.. It’s too bad & how sad he & i share the same name – his name should be “Dick”.. Time to liquefy Solid8 six feet under.. Looks like it’s also time to patronize this wonderful eatery & its 5-star personnel – especially the waitress!! Next time there’s an opportunity to go to Frisco, we know where to go to eat, drink & be merry!

  7. Native Americans the original settlers of this country and you idiot is just another immigrant to this country like the rests of us.

  8. Michael Lofthouse is despicable, disgusting and a degenerate.
    ‼️VOTE DT out‼️ “Fact: that Donald Trump is our president (i.e. THE MOST POWERFUL MAN IN THE WORLD) gives racists a platform and amplifies voices of hate.“
    DT is a racist, assaults women, is sadistic and a narcissist (I could go on and on and on)
    I hope ML suffers a consequence for his choice.

    1. Is it safe to email him (exposing my own email address to him)? He’s a scary guy. Is there something more effective that can be done?

  9. I am sadden to know that there is a company, Solid8, who is led by a racist CEO, Michael Lofthouse, of whom I heard is an immigrant to this country as well, in our community.

    As a former State Committee member of California Asian and Pacific Islander Affair Commission, will make sure there is a consequence to Mr. Lofthouse’s heinous act.

    Let’s do our part to rid of this asshole from our community.

  10. For those people saying don’t blame Trump for this. The first words out of the guys mouth was ” Trump’s gonna f–k you! Then more explitives. If you don’t see this as a problem then , you’re part of it 🤙

  11. He needs to go back to where he came first because he is not happy here in USA. He is full of hatred.

  12. The restaurant and waitress handled it well! I’d like to know which one it is as I’ll make sure to eat there next time I visit.

  13. I believe his address is 167 Las Astas Dr, Los Gatos, CA 95032. His full legal name is Michael William Edward Lofthouse

  14. Hmmmm🧐..As I see the video correctly, He does NOT look like a native Indian to me.. Another immigrant doing as what Trump calls it “ FAKE NEWS “ 😂.. This white pigment people need to check where they came from before telling someone to leave. I pity his ignorance and stupidity🤦🏻‍♀️.

  15. This is what I just sent to his company in the “help” option: “I am appalled at the coarse and classless CEO your firm employs. His racist rant in the Carmel restaurant is all over the internet and he shames and degrades your company. His arrogant and ugly attitude is unwelcome in Northern California and his ugliness is being spread world wide. How sad for all the employees that they will be dirtied by this moron’s filthy and ignorant words. I’m sure that he now will make an “apology” but it would be fake and unbelievable. This scum needs to be removed – or your company accepts gutter-dwellers like this as CEO. Do you have dignity and honor…. or not? Let’s see if you are REALLY “stable and reliable”.

  16. Funny how an immigrant tells you to go back to your own country?!! He even have a heavier accent than the lady… FKN PATHETIC!! White people needs to stop thinking this country is theirs… Just pathetic…
