The incident unfolded Wednesday at Andy's, a restaurant that has been in the small town of Lovettsville - population 2,000 - for nearly 30 years.

A white woman's racist rant at a family of Central American visitors for speaking Spanish at a Virginia restaurant was so fierce it prompted calls to police.

The agitated woman is seen shouting "show me your passports" at the family and telling them to "go back to your f*cking country" as the manager of Andy's restaurant in Lovettsville attempts to usher her out the door. The racial attack was precipitated when the mother spoke in Spanish. "They're here visiting and they don't know English, so how do you want them to speak English when they're just here visiting?"

"She asked us for our passports".

"They're here visiting and they don't know English, so how do you want them to speak English when they're here just visiting?" the woman told the station.

A Guatemalan woman filmed the incident and shared it with the Telemundo 44 channel in Washington, D.C.

An employee said she was calling police, and the woman continued her tirade after stepping outside the restaurant.

"Get the f-k out, back to your f-ing country".

"We responded to the scene and basically the deputy talked to the female as well as the caller, which was the manager of the business, and the resolution was that the woman was refunded her money and asked to leave by the business manager", Kowalski said. Maria said. "It's not fair for any child to have to go through that".

Meanwhile, the management of Andy's restaurant has since taken to social media where they gave their support to the victims.

As per their Facebook post last October 21, the racist white woman is no longer welcome in their establishment.

"Thank you for disrupting the rights of others who were enjoying an evening of camaraderie in a confined public space", they wrote. The response was titled, "Words of Thanks to a Former Customer".

The post from Andy's stated, "Thank you for understanding that you have a right to express your venomous and vitriolic views - no matter how odious and ignorant - under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution".

The posting ends with, "Thank you - and we mean this with all the aforementioned respect that you rightfully deserve - for never returning to Andy's. You are not welcome".
