Shocking video shows ‘pregnant’ woman screaming ‘I’m proud to be white’ after she hurls racist abuse at the black driver who threw her off a London bus
- The woman and a man had been allegedly thrown off the bus for fare-dodging
- Witnesses say that there was a physical clash before the woman began the abuse
- The woman is heard threatening the driver with court if she ‘loses her baby’
- The woman calls the driver a ‘f*****g black c***’ after she is removed from the 149 bus in East London
This is the shocking moment a bus driver is subjected to a barrage of racist abuse after being repeatedly harassed by passengers he threw off.
The footage shows two passengers disembark the 149 London bus and start arguing with the driver before one gets back on the bus to physically confront him.
In the video, one woman, who says she is pregnant, can be heard yelling at the driver: ‘You kicked me, I could have a bruise’ in reference to an earlier altercation between the two.
She later says: ‘If I lose this baby, I am taking you to court’, alluding to the alleged physicality.
This is soon followed by the woman yelling: ‘Assaulting a woman, you f****** black c***’.
The man kicked the bus after he and the woman had been removed from the vehicle and it had begun to try and leave the North London bus stop
The woman called the driver a ‘f*****g black c***’ and shouted loudly that she was ‘proud to be white’ after threatening the driver with court if she were to lose her baby
She then follows this up with further racist abuse and screams ‘I’m proud to be white’ as the bus pulls away.
A witness to the incident on October 13, who asked to remain anonymous, said: ‘From what I heard these two tried to get on the bus without paying.
‘The driver ushered them off the bus, and there might have been some kind of violent altercation and then I looked out and they both spat at him’.
After the row escalated, a man eventually gets back on the bus briefly to confront the driver, but was apparently ‘held back’ by a customer according to witnesses.
The woman took a photo of the buses number plate while the man was still arguing with the driver on the bus
The woman who hurled the racist insults also took photos of the driver of the 149 bus at Dalston Junction Station bus stop in East London
The pair had reportedly tried to board the bus without paying for a ticket first which led the driver to throw them off
After the bus goes to leave, the pair take photographs of its licence plate and driver.
They are then seen spitting and kicking the bus as it drives away.
The incident took place in Kingsland Road by Dalston Junction Station in northeast London.
This video is the latest incidence of racist abuse on London’s public transport.
On July 3 this year, a Jewish man was abused twice in a space of an hour using TfL services.
A video showed a man banging shouting ‘f*** your mum’ and ‘free Palestine’ toward the Jewish man on a bus.
A second video showed an individual on London Underground shouting ‘f***ing hate the Jews’ at the man.
Transport for London has been contacted for comment.
