In a shocking clip obtained by the ABC, the woman is heard shouting: ‘Look what we cop because of these dirty b******s’.
Shocked by what she is hearing, Ms Li asked the woman to repeat herself.
‘You heard, dirty b******s!’ she says.
‘[You] eat live meat, blood-covered blood, bats. Good on youse, and you f***ing come here!’
As the woman continues ranting, Ms Li asks her why she doesn’t stay home, as the state was under stage three lockdown at the time.
The woman becomes further incensed by the comment and fires back: ‘Why don’t you f***ing go back to China and keep your disease over there, you f***ing idiot’.

A number of Asian Australians have reported more incidents of racial abuse since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.

Ms Weedon was charged over the incident but was released on bail.
