The incident unfolded when Terrell, in a video shared on his social media platforms on April 29, recounted the harrowing experience he endured. In the footage, Terrell revealed how he was accosted by a man who hurled racial epithets at him, including the abhorrent term "Hitler n****r."

Despite the offensive language, Terrell remained composed as he captured the encounter on video, determined to expose the perpetrator's bigotry to the world.

"The man came walking towards me and started calling me a Hitler n****r," Terrell recounted in his video, visibly shaken by the encounter. "I apologize for the word, but I want to be as honest as possible."

The racist tirade, as described by Terrell, was seemingly prompted by his vocal support for Israel, a stance that has drawn ire from antisemitic individuals and groups.
