A woman has been caught on film calling a bouncer a ‘n*****’ and spitting at him in front of shocked onlookers in an outrageous racist outburst in Birmingham.
The woman was refused entry to the Figure of Eight pub in the city centre on Saturday night and was then filmed launching a horrific rant at black bouncer Tristan Price who was working on the door.
The video, which was shared widely on social media, shows the woman arguing with Mr Price and trying to shout at one of her friends inside the venue. When she is refused entry by the bouncer, who appears to remain calm in the video, she then shoves the bouncer before calling him a ‘black c***’.
While walking away, and still on camera, she then repeatedly shouts ‘f****** n*****’ before spitting at him in front of shocked revellers outside the venue. The video was shared by the bouncer on social media.
Mr Price published it with a post that read: ‘I haven’t been doing security for years like some, but in the short time I’ve been doing it I’ve seen and been through pretty much anything there is to see and go through whilst doing the job.
‘This however, is something I or anyone who looks like me shouldn’t have to go through.
‘There was a time I’d go through things like this and brush it under the carpet but them times are over.’
Birmingham Police Chief Inspector James Spencer said in a statement this morning: “We’re aware of video showing a woman directing racist abuse at a member of door staff in Broad Street over the weekend.
“It’s been crimed as a racially aggravated harassment offence and we are investigating.
“It’s an awful incident and people are understandably disgusted. We are prioritising the investigation.
“Our city centre police teams have been working hard with local businesses to make the city a safe and enjoyable place to visit.
“Racist behaviour is completely unacceptable and we are taking this report very seriously.”
