Owners of an Indian restaurant in Montana have responded to racist comments made by a local man on Facebook who expressed his distaste over their authentic spread.

Raj and Priyanka Singh, owners of the Curry Express in Belgrade, a city that is predominantly white, shared a video showing the items on their lunch buffet this week.

Richard Suttles, the owner of Twins Construction in Bozeman, took to the comments section writing: ‘I’m going to puke.’

Suttles then fired back: ‘Your race is an insult to the Earth. You come here get a hand out and don’t do manual labor, but make a killing off our tax dollars. So to that, go f*** yourself.’

The couple later shared a screenshot of the exchange to their page, expressing their shock over the racial attack.  

‘Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to get a message like that… there’s a first for everything in life I suppose… welcome to the ignorant 21st century,’ the post said.

The Singhs have since received an overwhelming amount of support from customers and strangers.

One woman wrote on Facebook: ‘You are among the hardest working people I know. Don’t take to heart the hate born ignorance that was expressed.

‘Thank you for being here and being such a great part of the culinary community.’

Another said: ‘I messaged Richard Suttles to let him know he’s famous now… as a racist. Congratulations Richard.’

And someone else added: ‘One cursory glance at his profile shows he is filled with hate and racism.

‘So much so that there isn’t room for anything else on his page or probably his life. People like him are a disgrace to the human race.’ 

Meanwhile, Yelp has been forced to monitor Suttles’ business page.

Neither parties could be reached for further comment by DailyMail.com late Friday night.
