A Miami anesthesiologist has been charged with a hate crime after she allegedly punched a Hispanic man in a supermarket parking lot.

Dr. Jennifer Susan Wright, 58, lashed out at a male shopper who asked her to socially distance due to Covid-19 guidelines while at a supermarket in Hialeah, a Hispanic suburb of Miami.

According to the Miami Herald, the man asked her to back up -- and when she ignored him, he repeated "back up" in Spanish.

Dr. Wright reportedly "mumbled bad words," then walked up to him and hurled racial slurs and other insults.

The police report states Wright stabbed the man's tires with her car keys while telling the man to go back to his country.

A witness stated Wright told him, "Sp*c. We should've gotten rid of you when we could. This is not going to be Biden's America, this is my America."

She then allegedly punched and kicked the man.

Miami-Dade County Jail

The incident occurred on Jan. 20, but Wright wasn't arrested until Feb. 19, according to Miami-Dade County court records.

She was charged with criminal mischief, tampering with a victim, battery with prejudice, and a felony hate crime.

Dr. Wright, who is affiliated with Mount Sinai Medical Center, posted bond and was released Friday.

Wright has posted support for former President Donald Trump online, often sharing MAGA-themed memes and images, such as a profile photo that reads: "World knows Trump won #MAGA."

On February 9, Wright shared a meme on Facebook that said, "It's okay to be white." On February 12, she uploaded a meme that read, "They don't want you to have free speech. So they invented the term 'hate speech' to shut you up."
