Norma Vasquez was waiting for a table with her family when her son recorded this exchange with a stranger

This is the stranger who beraded Norma and Carlos Vasquez, captured via smartphone.

A mother and her son were involved in a heated argument with an elderly woman who objected to their use of Spanish at an IHOP at Koreatown in Los Angeles.

Longtime United States resident Norma Vasquez and her son Carlos were chatting in Spanish while waiting for a table when an elderly woman passed by and overheard their conversation. She interrupted them, saying, “Go back to Spain,” and “We speak English in America.” The entire exchange was captured by Carlos in this smartphone video, which he posted on Facebook.

“I speak English,” Norma replied. “Not good, but I speak English.” NBC4 reports that Norma came to the U.S. in 1984 from El Salvador.

The elderly woman repeatedly said in the video, “[Fidel] Castro is here,” and “Do you want the Russians here telling you what to do? Do you want the Nazis here telling you what to do?”

Carlos told NBC4, “This is Los Angeles. Even the name of the city is in Spanish. She shouldn’t be mad or interrupting families for whatever language they’re speaking.”

Social media users are accusing white influencers of using the Black Lives Matter protests in order to boost their follower count and gain likes.

A series of videos showing Instagram users posing for photos in front of looted stores, marches, and burning vehicles have been shared online, prompting fury from social media users who have slammed those in them for their 'shameful' behavior.

In one clip posted by Twitter account Influencers In the Wild shows a woman posing for a photo in front of a looted T-Mobile store in Los Angeles, standing in front of its smashed windows with her back to the camera as a man snaps the image, before the pair walk off.

Outrage: Videos of influencers posing for pictures in front of Black Lives Matter protests have sparked fury on social media

Speaking out: Many of the clips have been shared on Twitter account Influencers In the Wild, including this video of a woman posing for a photo in front of a march in Austin, Texas

'Shameful': The clips, including this one of a group of men posing in front of a burning vehicle in Los Angeles, have been condemned by social media users

Hitting back: Influencers In the Wild has called out a number of Instagram users, sharing videos captured by shocked onlookers

Another video shared on the same account shows a woman in a dress posing on a street corner in Austin as hundreds of protestors march down the street behind her. She is seen adjusting her hair while a man holding a phone takes the photo.

The pair then stroll down the street hand-in-hand, apparently not interested in joining the peaceful protest.

In one video, which appears to have been taken from an apartment building that overlooks a main street, three men are caught posing in front of a vehicle that has been set on fire, before running off.

One other influencer was caught on camera by an onlooker posing for a photo on a street in Miami that had been barricaded by police in anticipation of the protests, standing near some large orange-and-white bollards while a man kneels down in front of her to capture her posing in front of a raised bridge.

'The police barricaded the street for the protest, and this girl took it as an opportunity to get a picture in the middle of an empty street? GTFOH [Get the f**k out of here],' the caption read.

Twitter users have responded to the videos and posts with fury, with many voicing their outrage in a series of posts that slam the influencers as 'shameful' and 'oblivious'.

'Man, people really be out here selling their soul for clout, huh,' one person wrote in response to a video. 'Narcissism is a dangerous illness,' another added.

In one video, which appears to have been taken from an apartment building that overlooks a main street, three men are caught posing in front of a vehicle that has been set on fire, before running off.

One other influencer was caught on camera by an onlooker posing for a photo on a street in Miami that had been barricaded by police in anticipation of the protests, standing near some large orange-and-white bollards while a man kneels down in front of her to capture her posing in front of a raised bridge.

'The police barricaded the street for the protest, and this girl took it as an opportunity to get a picture in the middle of an empty street? GTFOH [Get the f**k out of here],' the caption read.

Twitter users have responded to the videos and posts with fury, with many voicing their outrage in a series of posts that slam the influencers as 'shameful' and 'oblivious'.

'Man, people really be out here selling their soul for clout, huh,' one person wrote in response to a video. 'Narcissism is a dangerous illness,' another added.
