Brave woman stands up to vile 'West Ham fan who shouted sick anti-Semitic chant at her'

THIS is the moment a brave woman stood up to a West Ham fan she claims hurled anti-Semitic abuse at her.

Shocking video shows the man making obscene gestures to the train passenger as they travelled to the Hammers' clash against Tottenham last night.

She had accused the supporter of shouting anti-Semitic abuse at her, which was not caught on camera.

The smirking man then swears at the woman as she yells: "Say it to my face".

He then flips around on a train bar while other fans sing a chant about player Arthur Masuaku.

The woman posted the clip on Twitter where it has gone viral.

She said: "Hi @metpoliceuk would like to report an incident on the 18:45 train from liverpool street to white hart lane.

"This man continuously shouting anti Semitic comments and behaviour and clearly not sorry when called up on…"
