(CNN) The CEO of a San Francisco-based technology company who was seen in a viral video making racist remarks against an Asian-American family has resigned from his company.
In the video , which was posted last week by Jordan Chan on Instagram, Lofthouse calls the group “Asian pieces of sh–,” among other vulgarities, at the Lucia Restaurant at the Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley.
“This is the face of the man who relentlessly harassed my family and I completely UNPROVOKED, UNWARRANTED, and UNCONSCIONABLE,” Chan wrote in her Instagram post.
In an email to CNN, Michael Lofthouse said, “I can confirm that I have stepped down from Solid8, terminating all business relationships with immediate effect.”
The CEO added, “I will make it my duty to ensure my personal actions do not continue to have a detrimental impact on those people closest to me.”
