A Pennsylvania woman whose anti-immigrant rant at a pizzeria went viral is now facing ethnic harassment charges after haranguing the restaurant owner for playing a Spanish-language TV show.

Rita Bellew’s confrontation with Omar Quiñonez, one of the owners of Amy’s Family Pizzeria in Hatboro, was recorded by an employee.

“You want to have Spanish on your TV?” Bellew, who is white, is heard asking Quiñonez, after saying that her family has been in Hatboro for some 200 years.

“What’s wrong with that?” Quiñonez asks.

“You’re not American, dude!” Bellew responds, before issuing an apparent threat: “I will look you the f— up and get you the f— out of our town.”

“I’m not giving my money to some illegal immigrant,” she says after demanding a refund.
