VIDEO: Muslim woman gets abused after letting shopper ahead of her in a queue

In an Islamophobic incident, a Muslim shopper was abused by a woman she let skip ahead of her in a supermarket checkout queue in Virginia, America.

The victim had allowed the woman to go in front of her because she looked like she was in a hurry.

However, in video footage taken at a Trader Joe’s supermarket in Reston, in the US state of Virginia, after cutting ahead the woman tells the unidentified victim: “I wish they didn’t let you in the country.”

It was later posted to Facebook by a friend of the victim who said she doesn’t wish to be identified, but wants the footage to be shared. He wrote that the woman had made comments about another Muslim woman’s niqab, before turning to the woman now behind her in the queue and asking why she wasn’t fully covered.

She told her it was all down to personal choice – and then started filming the exchange.

The woman then began talking about female genital mutilation, and the Muslim woman said “I shouldn’t have let you in front of me.” The shopper then replied: “I wish they didn’t let you in the country.”

Since being posted the clip has been viewed more than three million times.
