Disgusting drinker hurls racist slur and spits at bouncer as she’s turned away

A woman racially abused a doorman at a pub after being turned away, as shown in shocking footage being probed by police.

The video went viral after the shocking incident outside the Figure of Eight in Broad Street, Birmingham, on Saturday night (May 22).

In the clip, the woman is refused entry and erupts into a rage, Birmingham Live reports.

She violently shoves the doorman and then launches a racist tirade, including using the n-word and spitting towards him as she walks away.

The shocking encounter, filmed by a customer, quickly went viral and racked up thousands of views as it was shared across Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

The woman, who is asked to wait away from the door, tells the doorman: "I don't give a s***", then pushes him hard before turning away and unleashing a stream of swear words and racial slurs, including calling him a "black c***" and using the n-word.

A customer who posted the video wrote: "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 everything there is to see….this however is something I, or anyone who looks like me, shouldn't have to put up with."

The woman has not been identified by police.

Meanwhile, Worcester Bosch reacted quickly to suggestions the woman was employed by them, posting a message on Twitter last night reading: "We are aware of a video currently circulating involving a woman who claims she works for our company.

"At the moment we are uncertain if the woman does work for us, but rest assured if this is the case we take a zero-tolerance approach to racism in any form and this matter will be dealt with the utmost urgency and seriousness."

Jonathan "Tyson" Leon, 44, who runs a security agency in the city, said the footage was "sadly pretty standard" for door staff working across the West Midlands.

"It is very frustrating, but sadly we encounter a lot of abuse, racial abuse. I am glad this incident was filmed but this is a common occurrence really and I wish more was done about it," he said.

Chief Insp James Spencer, of West Midlands Police, said: "We’re aware of a video showing a woman directing racist abuse at a member of door staff in Broad Street over the weekend.
