Woman arrested after racist rant against Muslims caught on video

The woman calls the women a number of obscene names.

POLICE IN LONDON say a 36-year-old woman has been arrested after a foul-mouthed racist rant was caught on video.

The incident happened on a 206 bus in the English capital on Wednesday.

The woman calls the Muslim women “Isis bitches” a number of times, before telling them to “go back to their fucking countries”.

She says that the women should “never have even been here in the first place”.

Warning: Video contains offensive language

The incident is calmed by the bus driver, but escalates once he begins driving again, with the woman referring to the Muslim women as “dirty sandrats”.

Radio station LBC quotes Transport for London spokesperson Mike Weston as saying police were informed before the woman was arrested.

“This behaviour is completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated on our network. Passengers who use our services should be allowed to do so without fear of abuse and we are working closely with Metroline and the police to fully investigate this incident.”
