A Muslim shopper was racially abused by another customer in a supermarket - after she let her go ahead in the queue.

The Muslim woman had let her fellow shopper through as she thought she was in a hurry, according to The Metro.

A video of the racist incident at a Trader Joe’s supermarket in Reston, Virginia was posted online by Jeremy McLellan, a friend of the Muslim shopper.

In the post along with the video, McLellan claimed the abusive woman first made comments about another woman's niqab, before asking the Muslim woman why she wasn't covered up.

The woman then went on to speak about female genital mutilation, causing the Muslim woman to exclaim "I shouldn’t have let you in front of me."

The shopper responded "I wish they didn’t let you in the country." The Muslim shopper then explained that she was born in America, causing the woman to go on to rant about Barack Obama.

She said: "Obama’s not in office anymore. We don’t have a Muslim here anymore. He might end up in jail sometime in the future."

The Muslim woman then told the shopper that she might "need to get some help."
