‘Scumbag’ racist hurls antisemitic rant to disabled Jewish couple on bus

A man was filmed hurling racist abuse at a Jewish couple during a bus ride and telling them "go back to your country".

The shocking incident took place near Manor House, London , on a 253 bus on Monday, February 8.

Footage shared onto a Stamford Hill neighbourhood watch group shows the maskless man in black Adidas jacket and grey hoodie shouting foul-mouthed language to a man and woman sitting by the bus door.

He is heard yelling: "You could come over here and I f*** reverse English to you!

"F***ing damn d***heads, think you all own this country."

A woman then tells him: "We want to go away, because of people like you."

The thug looks at them and continues: "Yeah f*** off and go back to your country then, innit? You don't own this f***ing damn country, you understand?"

When the bus pulls up at the next stop, he gets off and makes a hand gesture, adding: "Go f*** yourself."

A witness told the Mirror that the tirade started because the pair were slow getting on the bus.

He said: "It seems like that scumbag tried to take advantage of them because they were disabled.

"I've never seen anything like it. I was shocked and scared.

"As a Jew I've had people shouting at me from cars in the past but this continued for a good few minutes as if it was an acceptable thing to do."

Philip Glanville, mayor of Hackney, wrote on Twitter: "Disgusting to see, please pass on my thoughts to the victims if you are supporting them.

"I assume the police will have been in touch with the Council for any additional support around CCTV etc."

The Metropolitan Police confirmed no one has been arrested although officers are appealing for information.

Andy Port, Neighbourhood Superintendent for Hackney, said: “We take all forms of hate crime seriously whether that be a crime based on a person’s race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or prejudice against a person who is transgender.

"We deplore any form or hate crime and will do everything in our power to bring to justice those responsible. Should anyone have any information with regards to the incident please contact 101 quoting CAD 5662/8Feb or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
