I was immediately concerned so called/texted her back and no response. I was seeing my parents that morning so asked them if they had heard from her and they said no why, so I told them the situation.

So I just had 2 tables fight in a restaurant. Table A coughed and table B said oh covid and laughed. Happens that table A is Asian and table B is white.
Table A assumed the joke is because they are Asian and table B says no, everyone got covid not just Asians it’s just a bad joke; who is right?
Table A escalated to a fight and had to be both separated and asked to leave. Who is right?
