The footage was filmed at the town cricket club in West Yorkshire, England, per BBC. The parents of one of the accused teenagers reportedly encouraged them to go to the police. The white male is 17 years old and the white female is 16 years old, reports BBC.
“We are supporting the victim and his family and working closely with local partner agencies as we conduct a full investigation into what has taken place,” Chief Superintendent Julie Sykes, of Kirklees Police, told BBC. The town of Holmfirth, where the video took place, also increased police patrols.
In the video, the white teenager can be seen pushing the black teen after he says he won’t kiss his shoe.
“Get on the f***ing floor and kiss my bloodclaat shoe,” the white male insists in the video. The white female next to him repeatedly tells the black teenager to “get on the floor.”
Other teens can be heard laughing in the background.
“Kiss my fresh Air Force 1 shoe that I paid £120 for,” says the white male.
