An individual uttered violent racist insults at a woman who was filming an altercation with a delivery man, which occurred for an unknown reason in front of the Brasco restaurant in Cergy. An investigation has been opened.
It was in front of the Brasco restaurant in Cergy (Val d’Oise) that a violent verbal assault took place on May 30. An individual thus proffered racist insults to a woman who was filming an altercation that occurred with a delivery man for a reason not immediately known.
Insults such as “I n **** your mother”, “dirty black” or demands of the Arab-Muslim slave trade were repeatedly uttered by the individual who was not afraid to reveal his face, physically threatening the person filming him.
“You black girl, you dirty black girl, nobody even touches you with a stick.” You *****. Wallah, even with a toe, I don’t touch you […] For 800 years you have been sold like cattle. Fuck bitch from m **** n ***** your mothers. I am Algerian, we Algerians have sold you like cattle, like corn, bastards, ”we can hear on one of the videos broadcast.
Several extracts were posted on Twitter before provoking many reactions on the social network, making Cergy enter the trends in the France category on the morning of May 31. The outrage caused by the video prompted the fast food brand to react on Facebook.
“Following the incident on the forecourt last night, we would like to point out that it is absolutely not one of our employees but an Uber Eats delivery man. The Brasco restaurant has no live delivery person and goes through platforms which obviously do not check the profile of their employees, ”she argued, adding:“ We will file a complaint in the morning in order to ensure that this does not happen again. “
Doubt hangs over the role of the person behind the racist insults and his links with the Brasco restaurant. If the sign denies any connection with her, saying that it is a delivery man and that she will file a complaint, the many comments reacting to the press release seem to claim the opposite. The individual himself claims in the video that “[he] works here”, without knowing whether he is talking about the restaurant or the city of Cergy. Contacted by RT France, the restaurant has not yet answered our questions.
The African Black Defense League (LDNA) quickly took hold of the subject by resuming the video on Twitter from the morning of May 31. “Yet another negrophobic assault on a fast food delivery man who came to pick up an order to be delivered, and we don’t know why, he was attacked by an individual very hostile to blacks,” she regretted.

The national councilor Les Républicains Stéphane Tikki also denounced the aggression and wondered about the slowness of “the reaction of anti-racist movements. I hope that justice will be done because racism is not an opinion but a crime “.
For all those who say there is no such thing as racism: “You negress, slaves, you dirty blacks.” We are still waiting for the reaction of the anti-racist movements. I hope that justice will be done because racism is not an opinion but a crime. #cergyhttps: //t.co/T6qiXje8xO
