Actress Francia Raisa was caught on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles by Trump-supporter caravans, who boxed her in and tormented her for being Mexican. The celebrity posted a video on her instagram page recalling the situation in tears. 

"They f**cking boxed me in and they're pointing at me and laughing at me saying 'hahaha,'" she said on her Instagram story. "Literally I almost crashed because they wouldn't let me out."

The actress said she attempted to go around the parade, but the caravans created a barrier that boxed her in, leaving her unable to drive or move. "It was so dangerous. I could have crashed, and I don't understand why that's the country that y'all are supposedly wanting right now, " she said. "Really? That's what makes America great?"

She said they were pointing and laughing at her because she was a Mexican. Francia wasn't the only one caught in the Trump parade yesterday on the 405 in Los Angeles. A friend of hers texted her saying that they were also caught in the same freeway, in which a Trump supporter yell obscenities at them, saying "fuck you n**ger, go trump." 

Actress Amber Riley of Glee also posted in support of Raisa, who had called her during the incident. Riley, a Black actress, had also been assaulted by a white Trump supporter while she was trying to drive out of a parking lot. The man used his pro-Trump hat as some sort of "badge" to get Riley to stop driving and then proceeded to spit on her car. "what does being a Trump supporter mean?" she said as she explained the incident on her Insta story. "How much do you guys expect Black people to take?"
