A passenger has been left furious after she claimed she was bombarded with homophobic abuse as airline staff did nothing.
Laura Muldoon posted a photograph of a group of men who she said called her a ‘miserable b****h’, ‘d***’ and ‘lesbo’ on a Ryanair flight from London Stansted to Seville.
Ms Muldoon, social media manager at the Museum of London, said: “First holiday snap! Of this bunch of lads who chanted that I was a “miserable b***h”, “d***” and “lesbo” (very well observed!) on @Ryanair flight.
Following the tweet she was sent several messages of support and the airline told her to contact them so staff could investigate the alleged incident.
If the police pursue the incident it will be treated as a hate crime and should the accused be convicted they are likely to be fined and ordered to carry out unpaid work.
The abuse comes weeks after a high-profile attack on two air stewardesses who were asked to kiss by men on a night bus, in London - when they refused they were assaulted.
Melania Geymonat, 28, was travelling on a London bus with her girlfriend Chris when they were repeatedly told to kiss by a group of men.
