A video has emerged of a man stalking a woman wearing a hijab in a UK supermarket. The man filmed himself spraying her on the back with Vanish stain remover while saying, “Let’s see if this works.” The victim appears to be oblivious to the assault and carries on shopping.
At the end, the perpetrator says in a Northern accent: “No, no it don’t f***ing work.”
The video, initially shared by Muslim community network 5Pillars on Facebook, has gone viral, prompting furious reactions among internet users.
Some have described the man’s actions as assault, hoping the offender will be identified.
Surely that's enough for a conviction. It's definitely assault at the very least.— Pablo Diablo Bonzo (@PabloBonzo) 13 июня 2018 г.

Others have lamented that the UK has gotten used to such behavior.
The man has also been blasted as being a “coward” for attacking the woman from behind.

Moreover, he has received some helpful advice from Twitter.
He should try Vanish on his racism and bigotry too. It will surely work if he tries through his eyes.— Imran Hasan (@imranhb3) 13 июня 2018 г.
