A Black woman claims two white men harassed her and her family at a Las Vegas restaurant.
In a series of videos posted to social media on Monday, Instagram user @fiyameta says she, her 13-year-old sister, and her 1-year-old daughter Mila went to dinner at Umezono Sushi and Japanese Grill when the two men allegedly gave them “the death stare” as they walked in.
“Never in a million years would I have thought I would encounter this,” she began her note.
According to the user, and as later seen in the clips, the two parties got into a disagreement over the baby’s noises. The woman says the men allegedly began “mocking” her child over the sounds.
“It hasn’t even been 5 minutes before these two creatures started mocking my 1 year old, harassing us, calling my 1 year old daughter annoying. Calling me a radical left and telling me to keep her [quiet] or else!” she wrote.
The social media user alleges that prior to the recording, the man in the white shirt “said some derogatory, disgusting, racist comments I do not wish to repeat at this point.”
“God knows what else they were saying to the chefs that were in front of them,” she added.
Per the Instagram account @karensgoingwild, the woman was allegedly told to “take your monkey home.”
In the footage, the social media user accuses the two men of “being so racist” for the alleged comments they made about her child. (The videos do not show the men saying anything racist.)
“The only way to stop you guys is to put you on camera. Shame on you,” she told them. “The world would be a much better place without you two.”
At one point, the man in the white shirt gets up and begins filming the family, complaining about the “really loud noise” that the child made.
“She’s a baby!” the woman’s sister says in defense.
“What is wrong with you?” the woman added.
An employee at the restaurant then tells the man to return to his seat. Later, it appears the two men are asked to leave.

Never in a million years would I have thought I would encounter this. I took my 13 year old sister and my baby girl Mila to dinner to UMEZONO SUSHI AND GRILL in Las Vegas NV. Walking in, I see them giving us the death stare, my body had chills. It hasn’t even been 5 minutes before these two creatures started mocking my 1 year old, harassing us, calling my 1 year old daughter annoying. Calling me a radical left and telling me to keep her quite or else! At this point I’m shaking terribly, I did not know what to do or say. My intuition told me if I did anything out of my character that they were going to cause us some harm, so I pulled out my camera and started recording. But right before I started recording , the creature in the white shirt said some derogatory, disgusting, racist comments I do not wish to repeat at this point. God knows what else they were saying to the chefs that were in front of them. I am so heartbroken for myself, my little sister but more importantly for my innocent, sweet baby girl Mila 😞. This is the world we live in!!! This is America. I am so sorry Mila, so lost for words.
Per @karensgoingwild, cops were reportedly called to the restaurant and waited for the two men outside.
However, the woman told the IG account, “The cops weren’t able to do much, legally there wasn’t much they could do. They said I could sue them in the civil matter. They left without a ticket, just a warning.”
Though the woman says she is “heartbroken” for herself and her little sister, she is more concerned about her “innocent, sweet baby girl Mila.”
“This is the world we live in!!! This is America. I am so sorry Mila, so lost for words,” she wrote.
