In the disgusting footage Jake Henderson, who supports Sheffield United, can be seen watching a TV press conference featuring Home Secretary Priti Patel about the doubling of fines for house party attendees.

Speaking into the camera - after uttering unpublishable racial insults - bigoted idiot Henderson says: “As a white man I won’t be listening to people of colour because they’re no good in positions of power.”

As the Retford man continues his vulgar rant a woman covers her face on the sofa beside him giggling.
