An incident that occurred in an Aldi’s Supermarket in London on July 31 was captured on video and is going viral.
Upon seeing a Muslim couple in the store, with the woman covered from head to toe in full Muslim dress, one shopper lost it, telling the husband that it was just “disgusting” that he allowed his wife to dress like that.
Kerri Anne Turner, 48, of London, told the man, “You should not allow your wife to go around like that.”
The man claimed, “It’s her choice,” and told Turner, “You should be a comedian.”
Turner yelled that the cloaked wife looked “like a bloody pillar box” and continued to rant that it was simply “disgusting.”
The husband told Turner, “Your attitude is disgusting,” and added, “You need to get educated.”
The store clerk finally intervened and told them to calm down. Now, the Metropolitan Police have stated they are investigating the incident after becoming aware of the video that has gone viral. Police claim Turner’s rant was “racial abuse,” and released the following statement to Daily Mail:
“We are aware of a video circulating on social media which appears to show a woman shouting racial abuse at an unknown victim. It is believed that the incident, reported to police by a third party on 2 August, happened on 31 July at a supermarket in Feltham. Officers from the Community Safety Unit at Hounslow borough are investigating. There have been no arrests.”
The Daily Mail notes that there has been a 13 percent rise in “Islamophobic” crime within the past year.
Turner is now reportedly mortified and devastated that her rant was captured on video and shared on social media, and is fearful the police will act against her, according to a neighbor.
The Sun also reported the incident, calling Turner a “vile woman.”
