So in a family backyard bbq we’re not allowed to have Spanish music because it’s disrespectful to the country????? Land of the free right? Celebrating independence!!! We are celebrating Independence Day just like everyone else! #neverhadaproblemuntil2018

“I made a huge mistake,” Larry Lappin, a resident of Petaluma, Calif., told KPIX 5.

Lappin added that he sometimes wished his neighbors “Would assimilate more. I hear them playing music in the backyard all the time and it doesn’t bother me. Because of the day and what July 4th means to me, I felt disrespected.”

Lappin’s apology comes just days Ivette Celedon shared a video of him confronting her family at the front porch of their house.

“So in a family backyard bbq we’re not allowed to have Spanish music because it’s disrespectful to the country????? Land of the free right? Celebrating independence!!! We are celebrating Independence Day just like everyone else! #neverhadaproblemuntil2018,” Celedon posted on Facebook with the accompanying video.

In it, Lappin tells two men not to play Latin music “In my country” on Independence Day and accuses them of disrespecting the U.S. “This is the 4th of July,” Lappin said.

In his apology, Lappin said ” is the freedom they are afforded by the people who serve this country.


“I Made A Huge Mistake” – Man Apologizes For Accosting Neighbors Over Latin Music On July 4th

A Petaluma man has offered his apologies after he was caught on camera cursing his neighbors in a racist tirade over playing Spanish-language music on the Fourth of July.

The cellphone camera points downward as an angry white man is heard scolding his Latino neighbors at their front door for playing music in Spanish.

Ivette Celedon of Petaluma told KPIX 5 she shot the cellphone video Wednesday after her backyard neighbor showed up complaining about the music her family was playing as they waited for the city-sponsored fireworks show.

“My father-in-law has a speaker out back and it wasn’t that loud, especially not over their loud music that they have a July 4th party every year,” Celedon said.

“So in a family backyard bbq we’re not allowed to have Spanish music because it’s disrespectful to the country?????” Celedon posted on Facebook.

In a phone interview on July 5th, Lappin told KPIX 5 he is sorry.

“Sometimes I wish they would assimilate more. I hear them playing music in the backyard all the time and it doesn’t bother me. Because of the day and what July 4th means to me, I felt disrespected,” Lappin said.

Racist white rage directed at people of color doing totally innocuous things has begun to occur with alarming frequency.

A Petaluma, California man lost it on the 4th of July because his neighbors were playing Latin music to celebrate the holiday.

Ivette Celedon, who shot the cell phone video, told CBS local that the music had not been very loud.

“My father-in-law has a speaker out back and it wasn’t that loud, especially not over their loud music that they have a July 4th party every year,” Celedon said.

“So in a family backyard bbq we’re not allowed to have Spanish music because it’s disrespectful to the country?????” Celedon posted on Facebook.

“Land of the free right? Celebrating independence!!! We are celebrating Independence Day just like everyone else! #neverhadaproblemuntil2018.” Celedon is a third-generation American immigrant of Mexican descent.

“I hear them playing music in the backyard all the time and it doesn’t bother me. Because of the day and what July 4th means to me, I felt disrespected.”

Fueled by a hate for immigrants who refuse to listen to good, American, white-people music like the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, a California man knocked on his neighbors’ door and flew into a fit of rage when they dared to play Spanish music during an Independence Day cookout.

“So in a family backyard bbq we’re not allowed to have Spanish music because it’s disrespectful to the country?????” Celedon wrote in a Facebook post.

Although she gave no reason for sharing the video on Facebook, I assume she was hoping that Animal Planet would purchase her footage of the rare species, Racist Americanus, in its natural habitat-Petaluma, Calif. “Do it man! It’s my country on Fourth of July,” Crosby, Stills or Nash says as the video begins.

“You come in my country and do that on Fourth of July?”.

“Do that. Disrespect my fucking country,” screamed Bob the Barbecue Killer, who is actually a distant relative of celebrity cookout hater, BBQ Becky.

Because of the day and what July 4th means to me, I felt disrespected …. “I’m a very patriotic man. Unfortunately, that wasn’t representative of a patriot. Just after a long day [the music] hit me the wrong way.”

When asked for comment, Thomas Jefferson, the Founding Father most associated with the holiday, who actually wrote the Declaration of Independence and died on the 4th of July, responded to Lappin’s apology by saying, “Fuck that guy.”
