On Tuesday, Tumi Sole posted a video on his Twitter page about an alleged racist incident on a South African aircraft.

He captioned the post, 'People are united against bull crap‼️'.

According to other passengers on the plane, the white man insulted the black passenger in front of him, and when another African man stepped in, he said 'you people are all the same'.

The video has since been retweeted over 4800 times, and South Africans are proud of the people who stood up against the man, who is allegedly a doctor.

"A white doctor (and bigot) thought he could be a racist and threaten people on a plane leaving South Africa without the people holding him accountable. Dude - it's a new day. The people united and he was kicked off the plane.", Shaun King said.

Tweeps praised the lady taking the video. She told the aircraft official, who is presumably the pilot, that he had an obligation to keep them safe and she did not feel safe at all.

The video ended with the white man storming off the plane as passengers applauded his departure.
