This appeared to incense the bigoted duo sitting at the back of the tram with their early morning beer, all the more as they yelled:
“Listen you little Muppet! Don’t talk s–t to me!” one of the teens screamed. “Get off the tram now! Get off the tram now!”
One of them then approached their victim, beer bottle in hand, and sloshed it in the man’s direction, sending liquid flying across the crowded tram.
Other commuters defended the man and demanded the vicious group get off the tram themselves.
“You are an absolute disgrace. A disgrace to England,” a woman shouted as the two exited the lightrail at a stop.
