‘What Would You Do?’ Episode Taped at BK Carne Asada and Hot Dogs Airs Tomorrow

Posted By on Thu, Feb 3, 2011 at 4:37 PM

How did patrons at BK Carne Asada and Hot Dogs react when an actor posing as a security guard racially profiled another group of actors posing as a Hispanic family? Let’s roll the tape and find out!

"Are you flipping kidding me?" yells Rebecca Russ, a restaurant patron who gets in the guard's face. "You want to ask them if they belong here? Do you belong here?"

"Don't you guys want to know if they have ID?" the security guard asks.

"It's nobody's [expletive] business, get out!" yells Russ. "Oh my God, I want to punch him! ... They have a daughter!"

Not that my opinion matters, but this rocks. And Rebecca Russ, you rock too. The show came about because producers wondered how Arizona citizens would have reacted to SB 1070 if it had been enacted last year. To be fair, South 12th Avenue is probably one of the worst best places in town to try such a stunt, but it’ll make for a pretty good show.

The show airs tomorrow. There’s more information here.
