Apparently, the Muslim woman brought a baby stroller onto the bus that kept triggering the door-proximity alarm, which annoyed a woman passenger named Ashley, who told her to “Get the fuck away from the door.” The Muslim woman responded by flipping her the bird.
Newsweek The 31-second video, which was shared on Youtube (below) yesterday, begins after the argument has already started, and the woman, who later identifies herself as Ashley, is dancing in her seat as she looks at the woman and sings, “I am a citizen.”
The video ends right after that comment, but the person who allegedly took the video posted on Reddit that the argument began when the Muslim woman boarded the bus with a baby stroller. After she triggered the door proximity alarm a few times, Ashley screamed, “Get the fuck away from the door,” and the altercation ensued.
Ashley: “Why you putting the middle finger up at me?” she asks the Muslim woman. “You mad?”
The Muslim woman’s comments are predominately inaudible; however, she can be heard saying, “I’m a citizen, too.” At which point, Ashley mocks her accent and responds: “You’re no citizen. You can’t even speak English.”
About halfway through the clip, Ashley turns to the person filming the altercation, gives her name, and explains she’s getting into a fight with “some Muslim chick” because of the woman’s attitude over thinking “she has rights that she doesn’t have.”
“Immigration at the door,” she yells towards the window. “Oh, wait is that ICE? Oh, mama, they here for you.”
The user who posted the video later explained that shortly after the video was taken, the bus driver intervened and “defused the conflict.”
BTW, Islam is not a race.
