“You’re driving in two lanes, you stupid b*tch!” the man shouts in the video. “That’s not how we drive in America. Trump’s deporting your stupid cousins today, b*tch!”
He adds: “You’re ugly, you need a gay friend to help you with makeup and clothes!”
Social media users have identified the man as Charles Geier, a 58-year old gay Trump supporter, reports Queerty.
Geier has since appeared to delete his Facebook page after the video went viral.
“First off #CharlesGeier, would think a gay man might have more tolerance towards others in a minority,” one person wrote on Twitter. “I’m sure you have had your share of name calling, and I’m sorry you are bitter, but passing that bitterness on is unexcuseable. Second, try using a signal to cut across lanes.”
Another person said: “Be gone #CharlesGeier. The LGBT community doesn’t like you and we sure as hell don’t accept you, B*TCH!”
One person wrote: “The #lgbt community is a community of #love not hate! Oh and gurl friend, please learn to drive right before you critique others driving! Your car at 10 secs does not look to well driven!”
And one Twitter user posted: “#CharlesGeier needs to not be gay. We don’t want him.”
The viral video was first posted online by Twitter user Santiago Mayer.
“Can we make this pleasure of a guy famous? Twitter is good at taking down racists. Took place in Houston,” Mayer wrote.
Mayer said the video was recorded by his mum’s friend.
