Kumail, who stars in the hit comedy series ‘Silicon Valley’ was out with a fellow actor from the show when he suffered the ordeal

Before things could become really violent for Kumail, bouncers at the bar came in and threw his harassers out

This happened at a bar in LA surrounded by people. I can’t imagine what it must be like to be someone who looks like me in other parts.

We can’t let hate/racism/bigotry/sexism be normalized. If something happens, be safe, but let it be known we won’t stand for this.

But there were those who didn’t believe that Kumail was telling the truth

After the election of Donald Trump, who has claimed he will ban all Muslims from entering the US and has given statements against immigrants and Mexicans, as President of the United States of America, there have been an increase in reports of people of color, Muslims and immigrants being harassed. Supporters of Hillary Clinton have also been carrying out demonstrations against the election of Donald Trump across many cities in the US, some even turning a little violent.
