Gennica Cochran Biography
Gennica Cochran is an American Waitress who rose to public attention after she demanded that Michael Lofthouse leave the Bernardus Lodge in Carmel Valley, California, on July 4.
In the video, Cochran tells Lofthouse, “Get out of here! You are not allowed here! You don’t talk to our guests like that! You need to leave right now! Get out! You are not allowed here ever again!” Cochran also refers to the Chan family as the restaurant’s “valued guests.”
As a result of her stand, a man named Jeremy Stephens started a GoFundMe page to honor Cochran. Stephens writes in the description of the page that it is important to stand up to racists, and it’s just as important to “lift up the people who stand up to defend those who are on the receiving end of such racism.” After two days, the fundraiser had received more than $41,000. The original goal of the page was $1,000.

In an interview with a local ABC affiliate, Cochran said she felt very “protective” of Chan and her family. Cochran added, “You don’t come in here and say those kinds of things to people. Especially people feel so raw coming out of quarantine.”
Cochran added that her decision to confront Lofthouse was “just something that came over me and I just did what needed to be done. I did what anybody else should or would do in that situation.”
In addition to working as a server at the Bernardus Lodge, Cochran seems to be better known as a yoga teacher in the Carmel Valley area. According to one online profile, Cochran is “a 500+ hour certified teacher.” Cochran learned her craft at the Mount Madonna School of Yoga in 2010. That bio says Cochran was influenced by Indian yoga master Baba Hari Dass to live a life dedicated to “service, compassion, and grace.”
viral video of a man spouting expletives and racist comments toward an Asian-American family at a restaurant in Carmel Valley, California, has been identified by multiple publications as a San Francisco tech CEO.
Multiple publications identified the man in the video as Michael Lofthouse, CEO of Solid8, LLC, a San Francisco cloud computing services company founded in 2017. Lofthouse’s LinkedIn account appears to have been deleted, his Twitter account suspended and his Facebook profile removed.
Solid8’s website says it provides “IT solutions designed to reduce cost and improve performance with Cloud Contact Center, Communication, SDWAN & CyberSecurity.” Lofthouse, however, is not listed as the company’s CEO.
