A California woman was berated by an employee at a Shell gas station this week for speaking Spanish to another woman who happened to be working there.

Local news station ABC 7 reports that San Joe resident Grecya Moran went into a local Shell station last week and was greeted in Spanish by an employee working there.

Moran responded in Spanish, and the two women had a brief conversation before they were interrupted by a white employee who was furious at them for not speaking English.

“I even went up to her and I apologized,” Moran told ABC 7. “I said, ‘Excuse me, I’m sorry. All she was saying is– she was greeting me in Spanish. How my day’s going.’ And she said, ‘I don’t care, you talk in English because this is America.'”

Moran then says that the woman told her that “Trump needs to hurry up and build the wall.”

At this point, she took out her phone and started recording the employee’s behavior. The employee walked over to her and flashed her the middle finger before once again ranting about speaking Spanish.

Moran informed the woman that she was born and raised in the United States, to which the woman replied, “Prove it to me, motherf*cker!”
