about the video

Ryanair has faced criticism after a video posted online apparently showed the airline’s crew failing to take action to remove a passenger who launched a racist tirade against a fellow traveller. The video, uploaded to social media by Briton David Lawrence, showed a man hurling racist insults at elderly black woman Delsie Gayle sitting in the same row and demanding she move seats onboard a flight from Barcelona to London on Friday. The budget airline tweeted Sunday that it had seen the footage and reported the incident to police.
