Clip Of Woman Referring To Boris Johnson As 'Filthy Piece Of Toerag' Goes Viral

Clip Of Woman Referring To Boris Johnson As 'Filthy Piece Of Toerag' Goes Viral

A woman has gone viral after she referred to Prime Minister Boris Johnson as a 'filthy piece of toerag' during a vox pop on Sky News, promptly sending the internet into overdrive.

The woman was approached by a reporter on the streets of Uxbridge, a suburban town in west London and Johnson's constituency at the time.


But as Sky News presenter Sophy Ridge began her question, the woman cut her off and said: "Don't you ever mention that name in front of me - that filthy piece of toerag."

She then walked off, shaking her head at the camera.

British actor David Schneider was one of the many people to tweet the footage, writing: "'Filthy piece of toe-rag' is the new 'Please leave my town'."


The hashtag #FilthyPieceOfToerag even started trending on Twitter, with more than 22,000 tweets at the time of writing.

Referring to the clip, one person tweeted: "Not even worthy of being a whole toe rag. Just a piece of one. And filthy too. Perfect. #FilthyPieceOfToeRag."

Many others compared her to 'Brenda From Bristol', a member of the public who famously lamented 'Not another one!' when she was told on camera that Theresa May had called a snap election for June 2017.

Of course, it's hardly the first time Boris Johnson has faced backlash from the general public.

Last month while Johnson was visiting Morley, west Yorkshire, a passer-by walked up to him and shook his hand, politely telling him with a smile: "Please leave my town."

He also gave the Prime Minister a friendly slap on the back, as Johnson agreed and replied: "I will, very soon."

During the same trip, another man told him: "You should be in Brussels; you're in Morley."

A few days later, in Doncaster, one woman then said to Johnson: "You've got the cheek to come here and tell us austerity's over and it's all good now, we're gonna leave the EU and everything's gonna be great... It's just a fairy tale."
