San Francisco Karen's boyfriend is FIRED by investment bank for accusing Filipino resident of vandalism because he was painting a Black Lives Matter slogan on his own property

The white man who was filmed with 'San Francisco Karen' confronting a Hispanic man while he painted a Black Lives Matter slogan onto a wall in front of his home has been fired by the investment bank he worked for. 
Robert Larkins was fired by Raymond James on Monday after being identified as the man in the video with Lisa Alexander. 
The pair confronted James Juanillo, who was painting a Black Lives Matter stencil onto the partition wall in front of the home he rents with his husband and five of their friends. 
Larkins and James Alexander told him he was acting illegally, claimed the home wasn't his property and that they knew the owner. 
She has since apologized, saying she had no business intervening. Birch Box, a popular beauty subscription service, has dumped her line of cosmetics, LA Face. 
On Monday, Raymond James announced in a statement that it had fired Larkins.

'After an investigation into the circumstances of a video alleging racism by one of our associates, we have concluded that the actions of he and his partner were inconsistent with our values, and the associate is no longer employed with Raymond James,' the company said.

Larkins has not yet made a statement. 
The pair were filmed approaching Juanillo outside the home - which is worth an estimated $13million - and telling him not to spray paint the wall, claiming he was acting illegally. 
'Is this your property?
'I'm asking you if this is your property,' Alexander said while Larkins filmed her with his cellphone. 
'Why are you asking?' Juanillo replied. 
Larkins chimed in: 'Because it's private property. 
'So are you defacing private property or is this your home? 
'You're free to express your opinions but not on people's property.' 
Juanillo did not tell the pair that he lived inside and had done since 2005.  
'But if I lived here and it were my property it would be fine?' he said, prompting the pair to nod. 

He then said: 'And you don't know if I live here or if this is my property.' 
Larkins and Alexander shot back: 'We actually do know. 
'That's why we're asking.' He said: 'Oh really? Because you live here?'  
James Juanillo posted the video of the encounter on Friday which has been retweeted more than 159,000 times. He claimed Alexander lied and said she knew who lived in his home during the encounter which happened Tuesday

Alexander shot back: 'No, because we know the person who does live here.' 
She and Larkins then walked off.  The video emerged afterwards. 
Neither of the building's owners say they know either Alexander or Larkins.  
Brad Gilbertson, one of the owners, told ABC: 'She just claimed she knew the owner of the house. She doesn't know me. I thought she was out of line.' 
In her apology, Alexander said: 'I want to apologize directly to Mr. Juanillo. 
'There are not enough words to describe how truly sorry I am for being disrespectful to him last Tuesday when I made the decision to question him about what he was doing in front of his home.
'I should have minded my own business.' 
It is the latest in a string of racially charged incidents across America in which white people have wrongly accused black people of crimes and in some instances, called the police on them.
