A woman went on a hate-filled rant on a New York City bus, screaming her racist threats toward a woman wearing a headscarf, a video posted to YouTube shows.
The 31-second video posted by Nightblade called “Racist Tirade on a NYC bus” has been seen more than 8,700 times. It shows a woman threatening to have the other woman deported.
The woman, who verbally identified herself in the video as Ashley, can be heard saying “Im getting into a fight with some Muslim chick because she has an attitude because she thinks she has rights that she doesnt have.”
The video continues with the womans tirade as she is heard saying on the packed bus “Oh wait is that ICE? Theyre here for you.”
Ripley's Believe It or Not!
The person who recorded the video told Gothamist that the rant happened on the S53 bus from Bay Ridge to Staten Island. The videographer continued to tell Gothamist that shortly after the video ended, the bus driver defused the situation over the intercom.
Earlier this year, a Manhattan lawyer was caught on video ranting against Spanish-speaking restaurant workers. He complained to another restaurant employee that "it's America" and that in a Manhattan eatery "staff should be speaking English."
