HOBOKEN — A video of an angry man ranting on Hoboken’s Washington Street and apparently telling immigrants to “go back to your country” received more than 90,000 hits over the weekend, not to mention a Tweet from Mayor Dawn Zimmer saying the “hate speech” didn’t represent the city of Hoboken.
The video appears here and received many comments condemning the speech and blaming Donald Trump for bringing anti-immigrant rhetoric to the surface.
Sources said that the ranter was working for a local business. Members of the business apparently posted on Instagram to apologize for the incident and say the video didn’t represent the full story, but other posts on social media took issue with the apology.
Once we have more details about the incident, we will post them.
