Indeed, she asked her why she approached them, and the companions.
“Because you’re f****** Indians, that’s why,” Upton responded. “These f****** Indians, they come to America because they want a better life but they’re obviously not living the great life in India. You come to our country, and you want everything free. I am Mexican-American. I was born here.”
The woman out of the camera said that she was talking to her friend when Upton approached her and started saying racist words like:
“Everywhere I f****** look, you Indians are f****** everywhere. If life is so great in India, why are you all here? Turn your f****** camera off, and I’m happy to talk.”

She said that it is a disgusting and awful thing and is definitely a hate crime.
