An Australian woman has reportedly been arrested after she was caught on video, exploding with obscene racist remarks.
While riding Sydney’s Central Coast & Newcastle line, she was filmed blasting commuters before going full racist on an Asian woman.
“He can only get a gook!” she gnarls at the man standing next to her. “He can’t even get a regular girlfriend!”
To which the man calmly replies, “I’m actually married. I’m not with her.”
A day after the video was uploaded to YouTube, Australia’s race discrimination commissioner, Tim Soutphommasane, condemned the woman’s actions. She is identified as 55-year-old Sue Wilkins and has now apologized. Apparently, she was just having a really bad day.
“I’ve been chasing work for quite some time now,” she was quoted as saying. “It’s awful what I said to that woman, I do agree. It’s awful and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy, regardless of any race.”
Australian police look to be taking matters a step further.
According to ABC News, the country’s public broadcaster, Wilkins has been arrested — with assistant police commissioner Max Mitchell describing her action as “totally abhorrent”.
“This behaviour is totally unacceptable and we will not tolerate this sort of behaviour occurring anywhere on the public transport system,” he told ABC.
“This person has committed offensive behaviour. It is a crime that we will not tolerate, particularly in regards to the racial motivation behind this incident.”
Here is the video: it very well may be one of the most offensive things you’ll see on the internet.
