A man has been booted from a coffee shop in an upmarket Auckland suburb, after an alleged racist tirade against Asian-New Zealander customers that left the cafe’s Chinese-born manager in tears, Newshub reports. The man was also filmed parroting the debunked Moriori myth – an argument seeking to legitimise European colonisation of New Zealand – before being kicked out of Epsom’s Humble Villager cafe on Monday morning. Those caught in the middle of the apparent xenophobic attack were shocked by the incident, which is totally at odds with their previous experiences in New Zealand.
