The unidentified Asian American couple said they were shopping at Fashion Island when the Millers walked by them, made eye contact, and said, “Ooh. COVID is gonna get you.”
The white couple allegedly continued to talk loud enough for the couple to hear, saying, “Those Chinese spreading COVID.”
They continued their rant when another Asian American family walked by, the couple who recorded the video told @jackfroot. “Go back to China,” they allegedly said. “Stop spreading COVID.”
Actions always have consequences. Roger Miller has been placed on leave and Sandie a.k.a Sandra Miller has been fired after they were filmed telling an Asian couple to go back to their country. #racist #racism #StopAsianHate @thatdaneshguy https://t.co/NTkOVTI0Z9
