She said the woman first asked her if she and her companions were British. Then she began the foul attack.

"[Expletive] you all, get that on YouTube," the woman shouted at the beginning of the clip.

"Getting back to civilization mate. Oh, I'm a Jeremy Kyle wannabe? I couldn't give a [expletive]! I'm British, let Britain be British." 

She continued: 

"Great Britain is a small country and it's had enough. We don't want any more immigrants. We want Britain to be Britain."

Iggoute captioned the clip saying: "We sat on the London Overground this evening in front of this woman."

"She looked at us, asked if we even spoke English and if we were British. She then spent 20 minutes spewing hate speech." 

She added: 

"It took a lot to stay calm in a situation like this but I needed to get her on video to be able to report her." 

She then said: 

"Hate gets you nowhere in life. Feel free to share this around. P.S. I'm a PROUD immigrant!"

Meanwhile, last month a lady in Oregan spouted racist comments against a half-Filipino, half-English woman from her car.

Selina Cairel uploaded the clip to social media where it went viral. She explained: 

"The first thing she said to me was 'she's Asian, she can't see that's why she can't drive' in the most demeaning stereotypical Asian accent you can ever do." 

After the video went viral, the lady was identified as Sierra Measell of Beaverton.

Measelle, who received extensive backlash after the incident, posted an apology on Instagram to Cairel. 

Cairel said that she will eventually forgive Measelle for what she said. 

In May 2018, another Asian woman was on the receiving end of racist comments from an African American woman on the subway. 

The American woman first accused the lady of shoving her daughter over because she was black in order to get seating. 

She then brought in racial slurs and derogative intonations regarding the lady's Asian origins.

The Asian woman remained calm. She quietly said: "Mind your language" to the enraged mother.

At that, the mother instructed her daughter to push the Asian woman off the seat. Her daughter complied.

Still, the mother went over herself and knocked the Asian woman down. 

That's when she noticed someone was recording her. She then directed her profanities to the cameraman, Jose Amatute.
