A woman confronted a couple wearing swastika armbands who allegedly gave a Nazi salute near a Holocaust memorial in Rhode Island. 

Sondra Pierson, 47, a bookkeeper from Rhode Island, was dining at the Parkside Rotisserie & Bar in Providence on April 11 when a couple across the street caught her attention for all the wrong reasons.

The man was wearing a 'MAGA' hat and had a red armband with a black swastika on it. The woman wore a matching armband and a swastika T-shirt.

A woman confronted a couple wearing swastika armbands who allegedly gave a Nazi salute near a Holocaust memorial in Rhode Island. She first saw them outside a restaurant where she was dining and took a picture of them 

The pair crossed the street to the Holocaust Memorial, leaned on the various statues, took pictures and laughed, Pierson told the Providence Journal. 

'I confronted them,' said Pierson, who left the restaurant and walked over to the memorial.

She said she told them: 'What the hell do you think you’re doing?. How dare you do this?'.

The woman, she explained, sarcastically replied: 'Thank you so much, I so appreciate your input...let me guess — you’re Jewish?.'
