A couple were thrown off a bus and branded racists after singing the Peppa Pig theme tune to their autistic daughter, it has been claimed.

Nick Barnfield and Sarah Cleaves were travelling with their daughter Heidi on a bus from Sheffield to Doncaster when the 15-month-old started crying.

The couple, who live in Rotherham, started singing the song in an effort to cheer their daughter up, but say they were branded racists by another passenger and told to get off the bus by its driver.

The couple claimed the woman, who they say was wearing a hijab, took offence to the snorting sounds in the song and believed they were a reference to how pork is forbidden in Islam though this has not been confirmed.

She complained to the bus's driver, who, it is claimed, then told the couple it would be 'easier' for them to get off two miles from their home.

Here's Peppa Pig. There are lots of songs in the show, so who knows which it was.



So people of the west, I ask you: HOW FAR ARE WE GOING TO LET THIS INSANITY GO ?

I guess the little lamb that Mary had is also racist... "fleece as white as snow" is a dead giveaway.

Stupid...

So the Muslim woman was raising hell and to avoid the wrath of an offended Muslim it was easier to put the family off the bus.

Wake up people. SMH.

Someday we will all realize that we are all pink on the inside... and we all bleed the same red as well. "Insanity" is defined as doing the same thing over and over... while expecting different results. This is one insane world...

Translated for accuracy:
"Get off before that lunatic puts a fatwa on the whole fraking bus!"

that would be assult and pretty stupid, she should have told the lady she has a right to free speech in this country, as I have the right to sing peppa pig to my child if I wish. if you dont like to live in a country that allows songs about pigs may i sujest moving to a country whos rules suit your way of life.

But sick on of the Radical Muslim assault on free speech.

Sounds made up. It was probably more a complaint about the annoying song that escalated more than a pork issue. People like to...make things up.

No. He will be praised for being a nice politically correct drone. I will bet any amount you like that I can ride a bus all day long, singing songs that mock Christians and not get thrown off. We're letting the PC/Religious crowd become the bullies and everyone is afraid to call them on it.

Lol at the overreactions about a story from last year!


None of us were there...


& this is a non-story...
Especially since there has been no updates about the "investigation"!



& I just knew it would be the Daily Mail.


Why didn't the couple wait for the police to arrive and make counter allegations of harrassment and an affront to their freedom of speech?




Way too one sided imo.

As the saying goes," When in Rome..." If you immigrate to another part of the world you need to accept the culture that is already present and not view things especially those not directed at you as offensive. Why do some expect everyone else to tip toe around their sensitivities,yet they do not do unto others. A ridiculous display of pulling the racism card. Now I have the Peppa pig song in my head...

There was a topic regarding an incident from 2012 that had a lot of overreactions, a few days back, some guy playing the star spangled banner.

Must be something about music in the wrong location that gets on peoples nerves

The Daily Mail inciting racial hatred and instilling fear since 1896.

Yet another scene from which we have 1% of the facts yet the whole British population already has their opinion on it and their mind firmly made up.

Our country is being f****d over by the media and politicians. They've created a world of stupid people.

Haha. Yes. Music will be out next, great, divisional force. Oh wait...

The thing about even the old topics is that someone posts it again with a new date and it's new to someone hasn't seen it before, they check the date, maybe does or doesn't do a search, and reposts it as new. It happens, and it's something we should all try to look out for but sometimes miss.
