Woman unleashes a foul-mouthed racist rant at taxi drivers

A woman was filmed launching a vile tirade of racist abuse against a number of taxi drivers.

In the shocking footage the woman, who was recorded by a driver in Horsefair Street, Leicester, says to the workers they are ‘lucky’ to be ‘in our country’ and they ‘shouldn’t be in here’.

She swears at the drivers before saying: ‘Why are you here, causing all this trouble?’

The cameraman responds: ‘We’re not causing any trouble’, to which the woman screams: ‘Yes you are!’

The driver responds again, asking what they’re doing, to which she shouts: ‘You’re doing it now, you all do it. You’re racists. Stay in your own countries.’

A man tells her that she could be arrested for her disgusting comments, and she tells him: ‘F*** off, you fat Somali’, but the passer by says: ‘I’m Jamaican, I’m not even African.’

She shouts back: ‘Go live there, get off our small island’ before calling him a ‘dirty piece’. 

Manny Hayre, an actor from Coventry, received the clip from his cousin and posted it online.

Mr Hayre told the Leicester Mercury: ‘My relative was very shocked and disgusted by this woman.

‘He wanted me to upload it to show just what some taxi drivers have to put up with in Leicester.

‘He said the woman just launched into the abuse at lunchtime on Monday.

‘It is horrendous. No-one should have to put up with this.’

Mr Hayre said he is appalled by the actions of the woman.

He said: ‘What were the taxi drivers doing?

‘They were just trying to earn an honest living and they get subjected to this in broad daylight in the middle of the street.’

A spokeswoman for Leicestershire Police was unable to confirm if the incident had been reported to them at this stage.

She added: ‘Racism, in any form, will not be tolerated by Leicestershire Police.

‘We take these incidents extremely seriously and would encourage anyone who has either been a victim of racism or witnessed it to contact the police.

‘We are making further enquiries into this alleged incident and would ask those who may have witnessed or been the victim of it come forward and speak to officers on 101.’
