A Jewish student at the University of Nottingham was accosted in the bathroom of the Ocean nightclub in Nottingham on Friday evening as an assailant yelled “no offence but f*** Israel and all of you Jew people”.
The female assailant entered the toilet and told Reese Golding, a third-year student, that she was often mistaken for looking Jewish because of her “short [stature], curly hair, and a big nose”. The girl then went into a stall, and on her exit made the comment about “Jew people”.
Ms Reese says: “I have repeatedly encountered antisemitic remarks at university and just in general around Nottingham,” and has made a complaint about the incident to the Students’ Union’s Equal Opportunities and Welfare Officer.
The owner of the nightclub reacted to the media report: “Whether physical or verbal, any attack is something we would not put up with. Anything that gets reported to us be it antisemitic, homophobic, racial or anything else, would result in the person or people being removed from the club if they’re pointed out to security or a manager.”
