Police officers are investigating a viral video of a black hijabi woman launching a racist tirade against an Indian bus passenger in Britain’s multicultural capital of London.
Video footage of the incident, originally uploaded by a @guri.1001, was widely circulated on social media, and shows the woman screaming “You smell of curry you dumb b***h” at an Indian man thought to be in his twenties, and telling him to “get back to your f*****g Southall slum” in reference to a west London district in the Borough of Ealing.
Another woman, identified as her mother can be seen attempting to physically restrain her as she becomes violent, to which she responds “No, let me hit.”
According to witnesses, the tirade began after the woman’s mother began complaining to the bus driver that he was letting to many people on board, prompting the Indian male to ask her to stop arguing so the vehicle could continue on its journey.
