  • WATCH: Man Attacks Woman for Puerto Rico Flag Shirt [FULL VIDEO]

Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said Tuesday that "a culture of bigotry & hate" that has been condoned in the US "feels unleashed", citing a video showing a man harassing a woman for wearing a Puerto Rican flag shirt.

The woman captured the encounter on Facebook Live, showing a man approaching and repeatedly asking about her US citizenship.

Puerto Rico is a US territory and Puerto Ricans are USA citizens, dating back to the signing of the Jones-Shafroth Act in 1917. Are you a citizen?' "My point is, why are you wearing that?" he said. He also said, "You're not going to change us".

"Are you a citizen?"

In a now-deleted Facebook video Irizarry had posted, a man from the other group can be seen coming toward Irizarry, saying, "You should not be wearing that in the United States of America".

Eventually, a witness calls authorities, more officers arrive and the man is questioned. That officer is now under investigation. It says all visitors should feel safe.

'That officer did absolutely nothing he did absolutely zero, ' she says in the clip. In the background, a police officer is standing outside the park pavilion. The man was charged with disorderly conduct and assault, police said.

She filmed the confrontation on her phone and posted it to Facebook.

Irizarry replies she's not trying to change anyone and is just trying to attend a birthday party. She wrote on Facebook, "the man was charged and left handcuffed in the back of a squad auto".

"Because of the seriousness of the encounter, the fact that it targeted the Puerto Rican community in and around my District, and the growing number of anti-Latino and anti-immigrant hate crimes being reported, I demand the Civil Rights Division investigate to see if federal civil rights charges are warranted", the statement read. "Still had friends come over and had a decent time". The video, posted on Facebook, has been viewed more than 1.2 million times.

The video sparked widespread outrage on July 9.

Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello reacted to the video on Twitter. I am appalled, shocked & disturbed by the officer's behavior.

The man continues ranting, while the officer doesn't acknowledge Irizarry's plea.

'We can not allow those who do not understand America's greatness to terrorize people due to their background. "This is not the America we all believe in".

Preckwinkle called the video "completely unacceptable" and said she was "troubled" by the officer's response to the "terrible" incident.

The officer in the video, whose name has not been released, has been assigned to desk duty pending the outcome of an ongoing investigation.

The agency adds, "The intoxicated individual involved in the incident was arrested and charged with assault and disorderly conduct".

"All people are welcome in the Forest Preserves of Cook County and no one should feel unsafe while visiting our preserves", the park service wrote.
