VIDEO: Man Sentenced To Three Months In Jail For This Racist Subway Rant
A drunk man who berated an Asian woman during a racist rant on a London subway was sentenced to jail over the weekend for the verbal assault. A video of Keith Hurdle yelling at Kuniko Ingram as he called Asian people a “vicious bunch of f*cking c*nts” went viral last October and was eventually retweeted by celebrities including Ricky Gervais. Hurdle was originally arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offense, but has officially been sentenced to three months in jail, half of which will be served on license.
The video shows Hurdle claiming his uncle died in the River Kwai during the Second World War, and accused Ingram of being directly responsible for it. “You tortured him. Get yourself off the train, get yourself off the train,” he yelled. “You’re nasty people. I mean this s*it. You’re nasty people. F*ck off. Get out of my country.”
Ingram defends herself by declaring she isn’t nasty, while the man filming the footage questions the drunk 52-year-old as to why he has such racist views. “She doesn’t even f*cking realize that she’s a bad man. The Japanese are bad, same as the Germans,” ranted Hurdle. “What do you know…I’ve done two tours in Northern Ireland and the Falklands. Don’t even f*cking look at me.” He then aggressively dangles a bottle of the wine in the cameraman’s face.
British Transport Police confirmed Hurdle was arrested after “an investigation was launched after we were made aware of a YouTube clip of a man using racist language on board a Bakerloo line train.”
