Commuters aboard the Vancouver Skytrain stood up against a Canadian woman who hurled racist remarks against a Filipino couple.

In a video posted on Facebook, a woman is seen verbally attacking an elderly Filipino couple. 

The verbal assault started when the woman asked the couple to lower their voices. The pair apologized, claiming that was how they talked back home.

The lady then fired racist remarks, but some passengers stood up for the Filipino couple.

The incident was caught on camera by Ashley Klassen, who described it as the most "disgusting thing" she had ever seen.

An investigation has been launched into the incident, and authorities have identified the woman as someone documented for having anger-related issues.
