A woman suspected of shouting racist abuse at a bouncer on a night out has since been fired from her job due to her alleged conduct.
In a video that swept social media, the woman is seen shouting abuse at a bouncer after he refused her entry into a Wetherspoons on Birmingham's Broad Street district.
You can see the shocking video here:
After the doorman tried to usher her away, the woman in question became increasingly aggressive, throwing racist insults at him, using the n-word and even spitting at him.
The security guard, named as Tristan Price, posted the incident on Instagram, writing: "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. Share and find out who this is."
The woman has since been identified, and posted her own statement on Instagram. While she apologised for her behaviour, she also said she was "entitled to free speech", and claimed to have lost her job due to the incident.
"I would just like to publicly apologise for the situation that happened at the night club and I would like everyone to know that I am in fact not racist at all," she wrote.
"I have several black co-workers who I love dearly and have even dated black men."
She continued she was drunk out of her head and "angry" to not be allowed into the bar for not having her ID with her.
"At the end of the day, we are all entitled to freedom of speech, we shouldn't be abused for it," she said. "Yes my choice of words was wrong but for me to get plastered over the internet and so much abuse and even losing my job do you guys not think that has affected me?"
Tristan previously told the Birmingham Mail that people of colour should not be victims of such abuse when they are simply doing their job.
"I don't want to bring trouble to her door but this behaviour needs to be called out. It is completely unacceptable.
"People have killed themselves because of the racial abuse they suffer, and we can't be silent about it. I have had a knife pulled on me while at work, which was pretty shocking. But this was worse, it affected me more because it was so vicious."
