A Virginia driver is under attack after he was caught on camera unleashing a bigoted attack on the driver of a truck that had an Afghan flag sticker pasted on the bumper next to an American flag.
The man has yet to be named, but the video went viral quickly after the brother of the driver posted the confrontation on Twitter.
“My brother was being tailgated for miles and he pulled over to see why. FYI, my brother has an Afghan flag sticker on his truck, right next to his American Flag… and yes we were born here,” Twitter user Ameer Ghousi posted.
The video has been retweeted over 15 thousand times, and has nearly 40 thousand likes as of Tuesday afternoon.

“Why you such a b–ch Afghanistan?” the man screams at the driver. He repeats the question twice and makes faces at the driver, before continuing: “Go back to f–king Afghanistan and tend your f–king goats.”
Furious users responded in the comments, many apologizing for the “brainwashed, xenophobic piece of sh–” that followed the driver, just to hop out and start berating him for his bumper sticker.
I apologize for this brainwashed xenophobic piece of shit. I hope you know you and your family have got nothing but love from us brother. at the very least, nothing but love from me
