'You're coming here and pleading poverty while we're paying taxes': shocking rant of UK woman against Nigerian student Gina Thompson

A shocking video emerged on Monday February 4th of a woman going on a rant to patients in a hospital waiting room. The two-minute clip, filmed on Saturday night at Ipswich Hospital in Suffolk, saw the woman shout abuse at Nigerian student Gina Thompson, 23 (pictured above), and her 21-year-old Spanish friend.

The woman asked them ‘where do you come from’ before saying: ‘You're coming over here and you're pleading poverty. We are paying taxes you a***holes and we are going down in this crisis.

The incident took place at 7:30pm in the hospital’s accident and emergency department waiting room, where Gina had gone with her friend who had sprained her ankle playing sport. Gina, from Port Harcourt, Nigeria, is a film and media student at University Campus Suffolk and has been in the UK for two years, while her friend from Seville, Spain, arrived last September.

The woman shouted in front of about 20 shocked patients and friends or relatives: ‘What has happened to this f*****g country’, before directly abusing Gina who was sitting down.

She asked her ‘Where do you come from?’, to which Miss Thompson replied: ‘What does it matter where I'm from?’
The woman said: ‘We are paying taxes you a***holes and we are going down in this crisis’, before Gina replied: ‘Don't call me an a***hole’.

But the woman said: ‘I will, because you're coming over here and you're pleading poverty. I am not well.’

But Miss Thompson responded: ‘You won't call me an a***hole. I will not accept that. Don't call me an a***hole. Don't come to my face and insult me. You won't do that. Calling me an a***hole? Are you alright?’

The woman said back: ‘Don't accept it, you fat a***’, before a voice off camera said the police had been called.

The woman was then apprehended by a group of nurses, paramedics and security guards, saying: ‘There's a revolution going on here.’ 

The woman has now been charged with five offences and will appear in court on Feb 20
