A woman who allegedly called a black doorman the N-word in an incident filmed on a mobile phone has insisted she is not racist.
The 24-year-old is claimed to have racially abused Tristan Prince outside a Wetherspoons pub in Birmingham city centre on Saturday.
She posted on Instagram that she couldn’t be racist as she had ‘even dated black men’.
Footage of the alleged incident was posted on Instagram by Mr Prince and it has been viewed more than 1.5 million times.
While Mr Price appears to remain calm throughout the altercation, the woman appears to push him and allegedly calls him a “black c***t” .
She then repeatedly appears to shout “f****** n*****” before appearing to spitting in full view of fellow revellers as she walks away.
An Instagram account reportedly belonging to the woman posted on Monday afternoon.
It reads: “I would like everyone to know that I am infact [sic] not racist at all.
“I have several black co-workers who I love dearly and have even dated black men.
She told the Sun her granddaughter had ‘regretted her actions’ adding: “She is definitely not a racist, 100 per cent.
Mr Price said: “I haven’t been doing security for years like some, but in the short time I’ve been doing it I’ve seen and been through pretty much anything there is to see and go through whilst doing the job.
“This however, is something I, or anyone who looks like me shouldn’t have to go through.
“There was a time I’d go through things like this and brush it under the carpet but them times are over.”
West Midlands Police said they have arrested a 24-year-old woman.
A spokesman said: “The woman was detained at 1pm today after she attended a police station at our request.
“It’s alleged the 24-year-old, from Worcester, used racist language towards the member of security staff outside the Figure of Eight in Broad Street at some time between 10pm and 11.30pm.”
The woman has been barred from all Wetherspoons pubs for life.
