Speech that causes butthurt won’t be tolerated in jolly old England.
Via The Telegraph:
A 43-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with a “racially abusive” posting on a beauty salon’s Facebook page.
Thames Valley Police detained the woman after the posting – made following the Paris terrorist attacks – said that people from the “Islamic faith” were no longer welcome at the Blinks of Bicester spa and beauty salon.
The Facebook postings read: “Blinks of Bicester are no longer taking bookings from anyone from the Islamic faith whether you are UK granted with passport or not” and “Sorry but time to put my country first”.
Police arrested the woman from Bicester, Oxfordshire, after people took to social media to complain about the comments.
Laura Burt wrote: “Thank God you have been arrested! Foul woman you deserve all you get!”
Victoria Alice Brady posted: “Fantastic news TVP! In the light of the attacks on Paris.”
Scott Woods said: “Can put fake lashes on ignorance but you can’t educate it. You’ve a LOT to learn…racist and ignorant.”
A Thames Valley Police spokeswoman said: “We have arrested a 43-year-old woman in Bicester today after a number of complaints about a racially abusive post on social media.
“The woman was arrested under section 19 of the Public Order Act which relates to the display of written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting with the intention of stirring up racial hatred, and for producing malicious communications.
