You all might have seen the video of a San Francisco Bay Area CEO unleashing an obscenity-laced, anti-Asian racist comments at a family celebrating a birthday at a restaurant in Carmel Valley, California.
If you haven’t seen it, get ready for a tension headache. Here you are:
This happened to my friend Jordan last night in Monterey, CA while celebrating her aunt’s birthday. All they were doing was singing happy birthday when this man started yelling disgusting racist remarks. These racists exist and they’re getting comfortable. Please vote! pic.twitter.com/T8RtSKDM3J

As you can see, it began before the video began with the man harassing disgusting comments at the family. That’s when the daughter began filming this inhuman piece of trash. As the phone steadied, that daughter Jordan began egging him, saying “Say that again.” and “Now you’re shy?”
The man is seen about 15 feet away, sitting quiet with his middle finger pointing at Jordan and her family.
As the daughter filmed him with her mobile phone, the man loses control, saying “Trump’s goin’ to fuck you!“ and then “You fuckers need to leave!”
The coup de grace was Lofthouse shouting “Asian piece of shit.“
Who is Michael Lofthouse?
That drunken, racist douche bag is Michael Lofthouse, founder of Solid8, an internet technology company based in Los Altos, CA. Oh, you know the San Francisco Bay Area, the region of California where over a third of the population is Asian or Pacific Islander.
(If you are already enraged and want to light up Lofthouse, make sure you go after the right company as there’s another Solid8 — more info on Lofthouse’s company below)
As expected his LinkedIn and social media have been deleted or taken offline, but the internet is always quicker. That’s helped by the fact that the Internet is not hungover from drunken racist tirades during otherwise nice evenings out at Italian restaurants.
What else about Lofthouse? He lists his skills and experience on LinkedIn with Management Consulting, Project Management, Telecommunications, Lead Generation, but “Lofty” is very clearly also experienced at getting drunk, ability to identify families to harass, and communicates racism across teams, and oh yes, “Leadership Development“.
Also, as referenced in his classy performance, he’s a Donald Trump supporter (SHOCKER). Considering the president’s constant race baiting, civil unrest around police brutality, anti-mask conspiracy theorists and politicizing of the coronavirus, it’s not a surprise fuckwads like Lofthouse come out feeling emboldened.
What a piece of shit. The complete unawareness and irony of a non-American that emigrated to America 10 years ago demanding American-born Americans to get out of America. One of the worst cases of colonial mentality syndrome I’ve ever seen.
On that note, good old Michael Lofthouse must have still had liquid courage coursing through his veins when he got home, or woke up in his car reeking of house wine because he was rage-responding to messages on social media.
He just doesn’t stop! He needs to be CANCELLED 1000000%! pic.twitter.com/RIFtHx9IXq

If anyone deserves to be cancelled, it’s Michael Lofthouse and his company.
Speaking of his “company,” it’s not much of a one considering Solid8 has one employee and the company’s 2019 revenues were a paltry $ 27,976 according to Buzzfile’s Solid8 company profile. Here’s the contact info for his company Solid8:
167 Las Astas Dr
Los Gatos, CA 95032
Contact: Michael Lofthouse
Phone: (646) 430-0087
Solids LLC is the only company located at 167 Las Astas Dr,
Los Gatos, CA 95032
Bet you that’s Lofthouse’s home address and not his work address.
One Outburst, Numerous Unfilmed Transgressions
I wish a racist d-bag would try this stuff with me.
How much anger must Lofthouse must feel everyday walking or commuting to work and seeing all the Asian faces? How much shit must he talk about Asians with his friends when cameras aren’t filming him?
How many Asians work have worked for his company (the answer goes both ways)?
How many Asians has Solid8 worked with as clients in the Bay Area and?
The point is that this goes way beyond just random slurs, xenophobic aggression and seemingly random racism on an evening out. That level of anger and comfort level displaying that racism tells me this isn’t his Lofthouse’s first racist rodeo.
In any case, let’s get to work Internet. Let’s make this motherfucker pay for what he subjected the Chen family to on what was supposed to be a joyous occasion, as well as for all the past untold and unfilmed transgressions.
