Teacher Stacey Little was at the club with some friends and was disgusted by what she saw.

She said: ‘I’ve never seen anybody do that before. I was shocked. I was disgusted to see a group of lads repeatedly make the Nazi salute. They were laughing, acting like it was a joke. They didn’t care at all about what it meant.’

The 31-year-old also said the group stood near the DJ and some were ‘forcing’ their friends to join in.

She said: ‘Some of the lads were clearly uncomfortable with it but their friends were physically forcing them into the position

‘Nobody else said anything to them. They noticed me and my friends staring and they almost did it in a challenging way.

‘They laughed at the images they took of each other doing it, did mini-salutes at each other while enjoying drinks, dropped the salute into dance moves. They literally didn’t stop.’

Snobs is one of the most popular nightclubs in the city, especially among university students.

Stacey said: ‘I know I’m not the target market for this club anymore. It’s most definitely aimed at students. Students, I would imagine, are open-minded, well-educated, tolerant people.’

A statement from Snobs said: ‘This incident was not reported to us on the night and no members of staff observed it taking place.

‘We do not condone this behaviour and if it had been reported to management on the night then we would have asked those involved to leave the premises.

Wayne Tracey, a DJ at Snobs, told the Birmingham Mail: ‘If it had been reported to security we would have dealt with it. We strongly condemn what they did.’
