Law enforcement officers in California have arrested a man on two counts of hate crimes following an incident on Christmas Eve in which he harassed Asian diners at an In-N-Out.

Jordan Krah, 40, of Denver, Colorado, approached two customers at a San Ramon In-N-Out burger and harassed the pair, who were recording themselves trying different foods at the popular burger chain.

‘You’re filming yourself while eating? You’re weird homosexuals,’ said Krah to the pair – Arine Kim and Eliott Ha.

Jordan Krah, 40, of Denver is pictured here in a silver Mustang. He harassed a pair of Asian friends at an In-N-Out burger on Christmas Eve before allegedly pulling a similar stunt Christmas morning with an Filipino family

He went on from there, ‘Are you Japanese or Korean?’ he asked.

Becoming increasingly hostile from there, he said, ‘Are you Kim Jong Un’s boyfriend? you have gay sex with him?’

‘Normally I could spit in your face. That’s some Filipino sh**,’ he continued before saying, ‘I’m a slave master you f***ing f*g.’

Krah told the pair he would see them outside in a minute before watching them finish their meal while staring through the window from the outside of the restaurant.

In an interview with KTVU, Arine Kim said that Krah ‘did not look entirely mentally well. He just kept on spewing nonsense.’ 

‘Honestly, if I didn’t record it, I wouldn’t have believed that it happened because, even some of the words he said, in the heat of the moment, I didn’t realize he called himself a slave master.

‘I completely blanked out that he threatened to spit on us as well,’ she said.

Krah has also been accused of harassing another woman, Abigail Halili, and her siblings when they walked into a store in downtown Danville on Christmas Day.

The family are of Filipino descent and Krah reportedly delivered a similar rant.

‘You guys are gonna vandalize the shop, you’re gonna rob the place, I don’t trust you guys. Leave! You guys are Filipino idiots!’ he said, according to Halili.
