British tourist bites vendor's hand, abuses locals after trying to free caged chickens in Moroccan market
The woman went on a foul-mouthed rant in the middle of the marketplace in Tangiers, calling the locals illiterate and pushing and shoving them
A British tourist was seen biting a local vendor's hand after he prevented her from freeing the chickens that he kept in a crate in a video that was shot in Morocco last week.
The video that was recorded by a bystander shows the woman go on a foul-mouthed rant in the middle of the marketplace in Tangiers, calling the locals illiterate and pushing and shoving them.
"Are you all that uneducated? You can't read, you can't read, can you? You can't f****** read. Are you that f****** thick, you dumb c***?" yelled the unidentified woman with a Southern accent, before turning to the person filming the video and sticking her middle fingers up at the camera. "Dumb f****** c***", she is heard yelling at the person, who also briefly held up his middle finger in response.
She then ties her hair in a bun, gets on top of the yellow plastic crate and tries to open the hatch.
When the vendor holds the hatch closed, she leans down and tries to gnaw at his hand. Seeing that the vendor was not about to give up, she brings her face close to his and shrieks, "Get off," repeatedly.
In other clips, she could be seen shoving at the locals, throwing punches and telling them, "You don't treat animals like that."
After extensive struggle, the locals managed to retain the woman till authorities arrived at the scene. Since the vendor she was fighting with did not want to press charges, she was removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital for treating "hysteria", Daily Mail reported.
Nevertheless, a number of people on social media called the woman's actions "disrespectful" to the local culture. "Go push your cultural beliefs in your own country, stay away if you don't like it," one user wrote, while another commented, "Even if they let her free the chickens, what does she think will happen? They'll just roam freely in the city?" A third added: "On behalf of the sane British public, I apologize for this simply atrocious behavior."
