Well, that escalated quickly.
Cell phone video footage from a few years ago is making the rounds again online. The footage shows the moment a woman launched into a verbal attack on a man who was standing near her on a bus. According to The Daily Mail, the footage was filmed on the route between East Dulwich and Trafalgar Square in London.
Whoever took the video began recording once the argument had already begun. The white woman can he heard shouting “‘Cos you’re a c**t” as fellow passengers giggle and the man at whom she is shouting responds, “seriously?”
Things only got worse from there, as the belligerent woman brought the subject of the man’s race into her verbal assaults.
“You know what,” the woman, who seems like she may have had a few too many, continues, “I really don’t know if you’re Afro-bean or Caribbean…”
“Lady, I’m just explaining to you who the fuck I am,” the man shouts back, “I am fucking English, alright.”
Clearly not the kind of person to deescalate a situation, the crazed woman then launches herself at the man. Unfortunately for her, she grossly miscalculated her movements on a moving bus and wound up thudding to the floor.
“You’re going to swing at me?” the man says, “Sit the fuck down!”
She did not sit down.
Instead she lunged at him a second time, this time landing a slap squarely on his face. At this point an all-out brawl breaks out between the two of them as punches and shoves fly through the air and onlookers call for the bus driver to stop the bus.
When the bus’ doors finally swing open, the man shoves the woman right out onto the street.
