An individual allegedly took a teenager’s “Make America Great Again” hat, spit on it and threw it into traffic in Seattle, Washington earlier this week.

Ashton Hess, a 17-year-old high school student, was standing with his family outside a Starbucks when he  had his hat was ripped from his head by a woman.

The woman proceeded to give his hat to a person with green hair who let out a cursing tirade and threw the hat into the street.

The man can be heard yelling, “get the f**k out [of] this city,” and the woman said, “you’re not welcome here.”

Once they left, someone went to retrieve his hat and found the man had spit on it.

Ethan Jackson, someone who does not identify with either gender, has taken responsibility for the incident, and many have identified him as the perpetrator, although it has not been confirmed.

This is not the first time a teenager wearing a MAGA hat has been targeted. A man in a Texas Whataburger snatched a teen’s hat, took it, and threw the man’s drink in his face. (RELATED: Random Stranger Takes Kid’s MAGA Hat, Then Tosses Drink On Him)
