The racists chanted about the Timi and Tami being a monkey while they sat in a pub at Christmas in Southend-on-Sea, Essex where the duo went to school, Daily Mail reports.

In  the video filmed the racists can be heard singing: ‘Timi Ariyo, he swings where he wants’ and then making loud monkey noises.

‘It was quite shocking when I first saw the video, obviously they are people that I know.

‘And it was weird to see that it was happening in such a public place – they were so passionately chanting such a racist thing.

‘So many of my friends saw the video and were like ‘wow I’ve never seen anything like that, I didn’t know it still happened in 2017′ – and it does,’ the paper quoted Timi, who is in his third year as saying.

The report said the racists, a clique of former students from Westcliffe High School for Boys, Essex, also set up a Twitter account to bully Timi.
