When a man launched into a bigoted tirade against a Muslim woman in a café, his comeuppance was swift.
Video posted to Twitter shows a white man verbally abusing a woman wearing a niqab, a traditional Muslim garment that covers everything but the eyes.
The unpleasant exchange in the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Café in California began when the man asked the woman if it was Halloween.

When she asked him why he said it, he replied: "Why wouldn't I?"
She then asked him if he knew she was Muslim, which he said he did.
"I don't like it, how's that?" he said aggressively. "I don't like your religion. It says to kill me and I don't want to be killed by you. How's that?"
When asked if he had read the Quran, he said he had "read enough of it to know".
"If you're a Christian, let's talk about your Bible," the woman replied.
"Do you know that in your Bible Jesus says to bring the people who don't believe and kill them in front of him?"
People on Twitter speculated that she could have been referring to Luke 19:27, in which Jesus says 'But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.'
The man didn't respond to her quote, saying that he doesn't "have any kind of conversation with idiots".
Another man in the café began yelling at him, saying "Get out of here! F**king racist!"
The supervisor can then be seen refusing to serve the man at the counter, after which he stormed out of the café.
When the Muslim woman asked her why she didn't serve him, the supervisor said it was because he was "disrupting a public place and being very racist".
