"Imma beat yo ass. I don't condone violence but I do condone self-defence, ok, 'cause I, I, I can ignore your racist bulls*** but when it comes to assault, I'm not taking my phone out, this is not a game, I will beat yo ass," Ms Riley said in an Instagram story.
In the video posted online Monday, Ms Riley spoke for almost four minutes from her car recounting what she says was a racist attack from a Trump supporter who spat on her vehicle while driving into a parking lot.
She said the "older white man with a Trump hat on" walked in front of her car waiving the MAGA cap at her to stop while he crossed.
"And when I was like, whatever move along, like get from the front of my car so I can go and do what I have to do. This motherf***er spit on my car," Ms Riley said.
“I shoulda called my bros. I shoulda just let them come up there and beat his ass. And we're supposed to be passivists and just be passive and let people… no. no. no. no. If I would of found him in that store, because I did go and look for him, I probably would be in jail right now.”
The actor said she doesn't care if people support Donald Trump, although she thinks they're racist, stupid white supremacists, so long as they keep their hands, comments and bodily fluids to themselves.
"Because that, you see that right there, that's going to get your ass beat. And people are saying, don't incite a race war, we're already in a race war, we been in a race war since we came here, since we were brought to this country, and people are going to start fighting back because it's human nature," Ms Riley said.
She added: "I'm done being nice, and I wasn't that nice to begin with."
