​'Kim's Convenience' Actor Andrew Phung Calls Out Toronto Cop for Racist Comment
Andrew Phung, who stars in the Canadian comedy Kim's Convenience, claims he witnessed a Toronto police officer make a racist comment while on duty Saturday (June 7) afternoon.
 
The actor was meeting his family at the Rogers Centre to watch a Blue Jays game, and Phung says that while he was walking to the stadium he saw an officer tell a driver to "go back to your country."
 
He took to Twitter to describe the incident and condemn the behaviour of the cop.
 
Phung explained that he was crossing the street in front of the stadium with a large group of other pedestrians, and a driver (described as a person of colour) hesitated to pull through the intersection as they were crossing. The cop then shouted at the driver to go through the light, and after they did, Phung says the cop muttered, "If you can't drive, go back to your country."
 
When Phung responded by saying, "That's not cool," he claims that two white men nearby reiterated the sentiment of the cop, saying "Amen, go back to where you fucking came from."
 
Representatives for Toronto Police have since reached out to Phung for further details, and a spokesperson said that the matter is currently being investigated.
