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?

These are tense times. Most people are aware at this point how much harassment some Asians have faced during the pandemic, so it was leaning towards thoughtless of table B but not necessarily malicious. I don't blame Table A for the response at all.

Table A got too defensive and acted out of line from the information given… there could be more to it though because it’s odd that it would escalate this much without some fuel on the fire.

Table A is surely misinterpreting and rightfully overacting, bcoz of how initially, Asians were blamed for Covid. In this case, I think it was innocently a bad joke. Hug and make up.
