Watch: 'We should’ve gassed the fucking lot of you' antisemitic outburst

Danielle Greyman, a student in Leeds, was at her local Wetherspoons when she was confronted with antisemitic abuse

The 21 year old student was at the Hedley Verity pub in Leeds recently, when while engaging with a homeless man, a woman at the table said “she was a fool and that he was going to spend it on heroin”

The discussion started to turn ugly when the man asked if she was Jewish. At this point her friend began recording the confrontation, where upon the man said “We should have gassed the fucking lot of you”

The man claimed to be of German descent in the argument

The argument appears to started over a social distancing issue, when the man and woman refused to move after seating themselves next to the friends. Danielle and her friend held their ground and refused to move, while asking the other couple to regard social distancing and move further away who refused.

Wetherspoons staff asked the man and woman to leave, and banned them from the premises.

Danielle said “I was left shaken by the incident, but doesn’t regret standing up myself and not allowing the man to go unchallenged. I won’t back down if I am subjected to antisemitic abuse, there are people out there who would have been terrified to call them out and challenge it.”

A statement from West Yorkshire Police said “the investigation is ongoing and have asked for anyone with further information to get in touch. So far, no arrests have been made. Any incidents motivated by hostility and hate are unacceptable and are taken very seriously by West Yorkshire Police. If you believe you have been subject to a hate-related incident, you should contact police and report it.”
