      Update (August 27): RCMP concluded their investigation into the incident. For more details, see this article

      A fair number of social-media users are telling a woman off after she berated an Asian woman in a Richmond parking lot and urged her to go back to China.

      Carla Waldman told CBC News today that she doesn't care what people are calling her and insisted that she's not a racist person.

      This came after an Instagram post showed a woman of Asian ancestry being called a "Chinky Chinky China lady" followed by harsher criticism.

      Waldman's interpretation that she's not racist isn't shared by many who've commented on her Facebook page.

      The controversy arose after the Asian woman, Amy Xu, filmed the outburst after two cars came in contact in the Richlea Shopping Centre parking lot.


      The Richmond RCMP is looking into the situation.

      "In order to ensure the integrity of the investigation and privacy of the individuals involved, we are asking the public to respect the investigative process and refrain from posting any comments on social media" Insp. Sunny Parmar said in a news release.
