Feb 8, 2013 – Woman Arrested In Suffolk UK Over Abusive Rants On Nigerian Student : “You’re Coming Here Pleading Poverty”

A shocking video emerged today 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 students Gina Thompson, 23, of Nigeria, and her 21-year-old Spanish friend. SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO

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 Miss Thompson had gone with her friend who had sprained her ankle playing sport.

Miss Thompson, of 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 Miss Thompson 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 Miss Thompson 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?’

What has happened to this f*****g country? We are paying taxes you a***holes and we are going down in this crisis’

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.’

Miss Thompson told MailOnline after the incident: ‘I was so embarrassed and I couldn’t do anything because I was stuck in the situation, so we just had to laugh about it. All the attention was on us.

She said I’ve come here to claim poverty. That’s not true. I’m an international student and I pay £13,000 a year in tuition fees.

My friend is a student here from Spain.’ [Source: Daily Mail UK]

  1. Can you imagine the insult? Upon the amount of school fees the girl paid annually. The pig that insulted her don’t pay quarter of that as an indigenous student. It is high time our leaders wake up to realities and do things right in our country. If not,would these goats family have the right to insult us? Fix our universities and infrastructures and let us get good education at home pls. That is more than 5million naira in a year that this girl is paying to that country n getting insulted over it.

    • I don’t know why this idiot is blaming the innocent girl, NEXT TIME TELL THE BRITISH B*****RD TO BLAME IT ON MR STUPID CAMERON AND THE EUROPEANS WHO LIVES ON BRITISH BENEFIT.

I wil only blame d govt 4 nt properly harnessing d little university we hv,no ultra-modern facilities,no technological gadgets,pls our govt wen u put evritin in place nobody wil like 2 travel 2 receive insults 4rm dis animals.

Anyways I am nt in surport of d insult on her bcos dat is very wrong of d lady.

    • Anyone can decide to study in Abroad. That does not mean anything and that did not warrant any insults from anyone. If u have the money, u can take ur education to any length. Besides, insults can come from anywhere, both local and international. It is bound to happen. It is one of those things. It is a challenge

  4. Daz wat fit those studing in a white man’s country, but thompson don’t worry urself, by d tym dey wil cum over 2 naija we go paint dem black cus we re naija..:-)

  5. This is errant nonsense,what Nigerians suffer in foreign countries is unbearable despite the fact that most of us travel abroad to study or do businesses to boost their economy.Paying tuition fee of £13000 in U.K. is not an easy means-KUDOS my sister for your calm while telling her who you are.No THANKS to that Racist-Briton.

  6. I felt sad, but this is how most whites will continue to view us, until we focus on developing our black nations and stop depending. We are blessed but greedy is our number one problem.
    Africa,,, it s time we move forward to development and growth of our countries.

  7. Hahaha! Datz an insult @d highest level. Imagine d kind of skul fees dis girl pays dia yet recieves dat of insult. My dear, endure it, u ar in dear land ok!
