VIDEO: Man Attacks Texas Teen For Wearing MAGA Hat In Whataburger

A 16-year-old supporter of President Trump was the victim of an unprovoked attack in a Whataburger on Tuesday night.

San Antonio, TX – A viral cell phone video that showed a 16-year-old boy being assaulted by a man who didn’t like the teen’s red Make America Great Again hat, and has led to a criminal investigation (video below).

Hunter Richard and two of his friends went to a Whataburger restaurant on Tuesday night, and were sitting at a table eating, when a stranger walked over and grabbed Richard’s pro-President Trump hat off of his head, WOAI reported.

The man also tore out some of the teen’s hair during the unprovoked attack, he said.

The irate man then picked up a drink from their table and threw it onto Richard, the viral video showed.

“I support the president,” Richard said calmly as the man doused him with the boy’s cap held firmly in his other hand.

“You ain’t supporting s--t, n----r,” the man retorted. “You b---h -ss mother--ker.”

The man stormed off, glancing at the hat in his hand before he announced his next move.

“This is gonna go great in my f--king fireplace, b---h” he yelled over his shoulder.

“Alright, have fun with it,” Richard replied.

The shocked teens sat in stunned amazement as the man marched out of the restaurant.

"I support my President, and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” Richard later told WOAI. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”

The mother of one of Richard’s friends shared footage of the attack on social media, and the video quickly went viral, The Daily Caller reported.

"I didn’t think it was going to generate the amount like what people are doing,” Richard told WOAI. “I was looking at the comments by some people and they are like, ‘this is uncalled for’ and other people are like, mixed opinions, but I didn’t think it would blow up to what it is now.”

Richard reported the incident to San Antonio police, who have assigned detectives to investigate the complaint, FOX News reported.

According to a Wednesday night Facebook post by Rumble, a San Antonio bar, the man in the video was a part-time employee at their establishment and has since been fired.

“It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery,” Rumble’s post read. “The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individual’s political stance.”

“We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for,” the post continued. “We do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video… Rumble has, and always will be, a bar that is as inclusive as any establishment could possibly be. THIS BAR IS A SAFE SPACE FOR EVERYONE! No matter your race, creed, ethnicity, sexual identity, and political stance, you are welcomed here!”

The post on the bar’s website has since been removed..

Investigators have not named the man in the video.

A Boomer is a nuclear submarine, when I was in the Navy I used to wash the barnacles off them every day. Along with "Whippin Skippy", my bunk partner. He sure could give the meaning to the term hot rack.

@TeneteLineam Bullying kids? I could've sworn you were bullying David Hogg on here just a couple months ago.

Let's change that to assaulting kids then. Pretty sure you support that too, as long as it's a Conservative kid...

COWARD....bullying kids. I hope this hideous pos goes to jail for assault!!!

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@DocRyder no, I don't support assaulting kids. But there is a definite turn in how you're talking about this kid. It was either you or someone else with your views on here that said David Hogg isn't old enough to have his own political views, even though he will be voting age very soon.

So why would this kid wearing a Trump hat be a Trump supporter, if kids aren't old enough to have their own views? You can't bully one juvenile and be against bullying another.

@DocRyder yes, one doesn't wash barnacles off ships. he has absolutely no idea what he's talking about.

I probably don't need to point out the stark differences in the conservative vs anti-conservative (assume lib but not 100% on that). One wants to have a conversation, the other to bully and assault. Excellent response and repose Richard. Thanks for making us look even better!

I think Mrs10 is saying that conservatives don't bully. If that is what she is saying, it is worth pondering.

I think everyone has missed the fact that this young man not only was attacked no matter what excuse this pos was using to attack him. But he also was robbed! This pos stole the young mans hat. I don’t like Trump for some of the things he has done. I do like the way he has turned the economy around. Stocks up unemployment down. You can’t take that away from him. I think that’s why the left is so angry. They want him to fail so bad but he keeps on making America Great! I might go out and buy a trump hat and dare anyone to steal it off my head. The POS who assaulted that kid needs to be arrested as I’m sure he will be for assault and robbery!

This "minor" was attacked by an "adult". Period. The attacker needs to go to jail. He also shows just how violent the left has become. This isn't an isolated incident. People are being maced, beaten and run out of public spaces. One day these people are going to get what their giving and then they'll scream "violence". What a bunch of hypocritical, out of control, immature A-HOLES! That kid had more control and couth than the adult will ever have and that is a cryin' shame. Grow up people! You don't win everything, everytime and not everyone gets a trophy out here in the real world. Learn to deal with it or GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. This is MY country too. This is the young man in the video's country too. You don't OWN it jackass...

Since the video went viral the attacker’s name, address and cell phone number were posted on Facebook by angry adults who performed a simple Google search. That’s heartwarming. I might just send him a text myself. “You look good in orange! You b—tch -ss m-th— f—k-r!” Just so he will know Americans are thinking about him while he tries to make bail.

Not sure what this has to do with "Blue lives matter", but assaults om anyone becsuse of their profession, beliefs, color, sexual orientation or religion are abhorrent in a pluralistic democracy, such as ours was, before the Trump era!

This isn't a blue lives matter issue...unless blue lives matter are Trump supporters. Anyway, poor kid they swiped his MAGA hat and poured soda on him. Congratulations, You've just become the victim of a bias crime. It happens everyday to african americans, white, muslims,Latinos and women and minorities. Those bias and hate attacks are the American way. Let's keep America great.Up

Marxest, you don't seem to understand that maga is trying to get americans to not act this way after having 8 years of obama encouraging this type of behavior. This attitude did not arrive in the last 18 months of trump but are a left over of obamas efforts then and now to distract from his own screw ups.

Hi_estComnDenomn

@Photodaleen But the US became safer under Obama, statistically. What do you mean encouraging this behavior?

@merlin9 Readjust your glasses and check the name. That's a troll account. His name has 2 Ns on the end, i have 1. Probably to fool people like you into thinking i said those things.

You should talk to a grandchild. Have them tell you to verify what you see online before you run with it.
