A man was smashed in the face with a can of ice tea so hard it burst open after he could be heard repeatedly using the n-word to a black customer’s face.
The video, which was filmed at an Ohio gas station and which has since gone viral, started with the white customer berating and swearing at the man, using the racist slur several times.
‘F*** my momma? F*** your momma, n****,’ he says to the black man in a hoodie, with confidence.

A black man picks up a can of alcoholic iced tea, seen in his right hand and gets ready to strike
The white continues to goad the black man who prepares to make his move
He enunciates the n-word in a manner similar to how another black man might say it to a friend.
‘And you know what’s crazy; I’ma walk to you. Right to my house for you,’ he says. ‘On God.’
‘I’m not trying to disrespect you.’
‘Then stop saying it,’ the black man warns him.
But the white man continues to use the slur.
‘I’ma say n**** all day, every day. Are you kidding me? Where you from, n****?’
The black man takes a step back and prepares to wallop the white man with the can of ice tea

The force was so great, the can burst and the man stumbles backwards falling to the floor

‘What? You gonna smack me with that?’ the man asks. ‘Smack me. Smack me, n****!’ he goads.
Finally, after 45 seconds the black man finally snaps and with his large can of alcoholic iced tea, slams it into the white man’s face, knocking him to the ground.
The struggle then continues as the tea-carrying customer wrestles his instigator to the floor while continuing to pummel his face, punching him in the head five times and daring the man to use the n-word on him again.
‘Call me another f****** n*****!’ he shouts.
It doesn’t take long before the white man is back on the floor once again

‘When will white people learn they cannot say the N word?’, asked one.
‘I hope that every time he thinks of saying that word he has flashbacks of this a**-whooping and the sound of the bell ‘ding dong’!’ joked another.
‘Twisted tea has done more to stop racism than Donald Trump!’ added another
