Video of an Oregon Woman Spewing Racist Comments Goes Viral

A 30-second video shared on both Facebook and Twitter of a white woman making xenophobic and racist comments to an Asian woman went viral in less than 24 hours as social media users tried to identify the racist.

Selina Cairel was subjected to the vile rant by Sierra Dawn Measelle, identified by a website called
Coed, which also said she is a stripper.

Cairel posted the video on Facebook on Wednesday, and it’s garnered more than 1 million views.


“I was out with some friends last night in Portland and had a terrible encounter with a girl who was saying the nastiest most racist thing possible, after wasting my breath trying to knock some sense into her I just let her speak,” Cairel wrote.

In the video, Measelle, the driver, and another woman are in a car and are addressing Cairel and a woman with her.

“Before you say anything, you might want to make sure you’re actually legals,” the Measelle says.

“And then call the cops and let them know.”

“About what” Cairel questioned.

“That you’re illegals crossing the boarder,” the driver says. “And your parents had to probably work for fu**in’ dirt just to get here.”

The woman then backs up the car and drives away.

Cairel explained in her Facebook post how the incident began.

“It started when she had said in the most demeaning poor excuse of a supposed ‘Asian’ accent that ‘She’s Asian, she can’t see that’s why she can’t drive,'” she wrote. “I was parked next to her and i did not instigate this at all.

“She was the one to pull out her phone first saying ‘This should go on Instagram,’ and started recording me.

“I literally just got back to my car from getting some Voodoo Donuts and just wanted to go home. I never let this pass and wanna make sure this kind of behavior is seen and how people of color encounter this all the time.

“I wanna make sure she gets seen and her racist, ignorant behavior is exposed.”

A Twitter user with the handle @_SJPeace_ also shared the video early Thursday morning, and it currently has more than almost 300,000 views.

Coed also reports that according to public arrest records, Measelle “has been previously charged with disorderly conduct, possession of a controlled substance and violating open container laws.
