Colorado twins are both facing assault and hate crime charges after they were caught on video brawling and hurling racial slurs at a Hispanic family, according to local reports.
Blond sisters Natasha and Shala Fross, 26, can be seen in widely shared cellphone footage fighting with a woman and her daughter on a residential street in Commerce City.
“Look at yourself compared to me! Who are you? Who are you compared to us,” one of the sisters shouts in the clip in which one of the siblings can be heard yelling, “old fat Mexican b—-es.”
“Look at yourself compared to me! Who are you? Who are you compared to us,”, “old fat Mexican b—-es.”The twins tell responding officers they were attacked by the family, as they were attacked as they continue to shout at the family members.
When officers arrive, the sisters claim they were attacked as they continue to shout at the family members.
“This is not looking good for you. Go wait at your house,” the officer says to the antagonistic women in the clip.
Carlos Ruiz, whose mom was targeted in the attack, wrote on Facebook that she was at their neighbors’ house “when these 2 girls started screaming from across the street racist things, saying how TF do Mexicans have money 2 own houses we do and have the cars we do, saying stuff like leave our country!!”
“That’s when my mom started walking back to our house and these girls ran up 2 her and started punching her and pulling on her hair!” the post read.

Ruiz went on to say that his sister then came out of the house to get the girls off his mom.
“[S]o then they both started hitting my sister, I tried helping her and so did my brother-in-law but she just told us not 2 touch these girls because we could get in trouble, so we stayed back and recorded and took pictures for evidence,” the man wrote.
He added: “We aren’t here to harm anyone! just live a life like everyone else! this is the type of stuff we have 2 deal with for wanting a better life!.”
Ruiz also took a shot at President Trump, saying, “People think racism is a joke…its 2018 and this is the stuff our president promotes!!”
Carlos Ruiz, the victim’s son who recorded the incident as he watched helplessly, tweeted the anguish of experiencing racism
In an interview with FOX31 Denver, Ruiz said the Fross sisters “were just going crazy.”
“I had never seen them before. I didn’t even know they lived here, so it was weird.”
“They were just screaming ‘fat Mexicans’ and ‘get out of here’ — things like, ‘who are you’… making it seem like we are less,” he told the news outlet.
According to FOX31 Denver, the Adams County District Attorney’s Office is handling the case.
