A woman who was filmed hurling homophobic abuse during East London Pride has been charged with a hate crime, ITV News reported.

Jamila Choudhury, from Walthamstow, was recorded shouting ‘shame of you’ at people as they marched through the London borough back in July this year.

In the video, she was heard shouting: “God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

“Shame on you, shame on all of you. Shame on you, you despicable people. Shame on you, you shameless people.”

Last week, she was handed a hate crime charge and is due to appear on bail at Thames Magistrates’ Court in October.
