A viral video appears to show a man taking a teenager's Make America Great Again hat and throwing a drink at a fast-food chain in San Antonio, Texas.
"So went out for a 2am snack and my friend (wearing a MAGA hat) had his hat stolen and a drink thrown in his face (and mine, you can see my arms on the left of the video)," the Twitter account @brxpug posted early Wednesday morning.
The video shows a man throwing a drink and then walking away from a table of teenagers holding a Make America Great Again hat, which he seems to have taken from one of the teens.
"You aint supporting s---, n----," the man says.

The 16-year-old identified himself as Hunter Richard in an interview with WOAI-TV as the teen who had his hat stolen. WOAI reported that police are investigating the incident.
"I support my President and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off," Richard told WOAI. "I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me."
Richard's mother posted a video of the video on Facebook in a post that has since been made private. In the post accompanying the video of the incident, which was viewed more than 2 million times, Richard's mother asked people to help her identify the "scumbag of the year," The Independent reported.
The incident has sparked outrage online.
"We were shocked to see this video and certainly don't condone this type of customer behavior in our restaurants," Whataburger said in a statement. "To be clear, no Whataburger employees were involved or witnessed the incident, and we ask that questions be directed to San Antonio PD as we continue supporting their efforts."
This is not the first time that supporters of President Donald Trump have said they were harassed for wearing the "MAGA" hats and other Trump gear.
In May, a 22-year-old said he was harassed and threatened by employees at a Cheesecake Factory in Miami, Florida, for wearing the "MAGA" hat. And in 2016, a group was turned away from a Cook Out in Colonial Heights, Virginia, when they showed up in Trump shirts and hats.
