The high-tech CEO whose racist tirade against Asian-American diners at a Carmel Valley restaurant last week went viral has left his position at San Francisco-based Solid8, he confirmed in a statement Sunday.
In a viral video, Lofthouse is seen shouting expletives and racist comments at a family.
“I have once again begun my journey back to sobriety and have enrolled in an anti-racist program with immediate effect.
“My comments towards the families involved were racist, hurtful and deeply inappropriate.
In the video, she is seen demanding Lofthouse not use racist comments toward other guests and ordering him to leave.
