This screen shot from Youtube shows Woodhouse cursing at fellow passengers.
A woman captured on video making racist accusations against passengers on the subway in Britain has pled guilty in court for the insults.
Jacqueline Woodhouse, a 42-year-old secretary, was reportedly on her way home in January after a retirement party and had consumed an “unknown” amount of champagne, the Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard Tuesday.
She lashed out at passengers around her including Galbant Juttla, a man from Ilford, Essex, who filmed the whole scene.
Woodhouse is heard saying in the seven-minute clip, “I would like to know if any of you are illegal? I am sure like 30 percent of you are.”
“It’s not your country anyway so what’s your problem?” she is also heard yelling. “It’s been overtaken by people like you.”
The video spread throughout the Internet, sparking outrage.
Woodhouse pled guilty to one count of causing racially aggravated “harassment, alarm or distress” by using “threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior.”
She will be sentenced at the same court on May 29.
