'Shame on You': Woman Shouts Homophobic Abuse at Pride Marchers in Shocking Video

Police in London have launched an investigation after a woman was recorded berating people taking part in a Pride event.

The clip, which has been viewed more than 3.3 million times since it was first posted on Twitter, shows a woman in a niqab repeatedly yelling "shame on you" at a man draped in a rainbow flag at the Waltham Forest Pride event in Walthamstow, north east London, on July 27.

"God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve," the woman adds. "Shame on you. Shame on you. Shame on all of you."

The woman can also he heard calling others "despicable" and "shameless" for supporting the LGBT event.

In a statement posted onto Twitter, London's Waltham Forest Police wrote: "We are aware of footage circulating on social media of abuse directed at those taking part in the Waltham Forest #Pride event #wearewalthamforestpride and enquiries are underway. Abusing someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity is a hate crime.

"If you have been verbally or physically abused, harassed or attacked in any way by someone because you are, or they think you are LGBT+, please report these crimes to police or through a third party agency."

No arrests have been made during the investigation so far.

Labour MP Stella Creasy, who represents the Walthamstow constituency, was one of those who condemned the abuse from the woman.

"Gutted to see this and clear such hatred isn't acceptable anywhere let alone in our home town- proud that many from all faiths and none today including Islam joined the Waltham Forest Pride march to show Walthamstow really does mean welcome," she tweeted.

Creasy also sent several messages defending Islam by saying one person's actions is not representative of an entire religion, following criticism from others, including far-right figurehead Katie Hopkins.

"For those asking—Just as the example of hate crime that took place in Walthamstow being circulated does not reflect all Muslims, so I'd like to confirm that Katie Hopkin's [sic] views don't reflect those of all blonde women. #notinmyname #loveislove," Creasy added.

Earlier this month, four teenage boys were charged with a hate crime in connection with an attack on two women on a bus in Camden, north London.

The attack on Melania Geymonat, 28, and her girlfriend Chris went viral across the world after they shared images of their bloodied faces online following an incident in the early hours of May 30.

Geymonat said a group of males attacked and robbed them after they refused to kiss each other for their entertainment.

London's Metropolitan Police announced on July 25 that four boys, aged between 15 and 17, have been charged with aggravated hate crime and other offenses in connection to the assault.
