In the short clip the boy can be heard quietly saying ‘kids being racist to me’ while some of the children threaten to ‘sue’ him and take him to court for filming them without permission.
One girl can be seen standing over the seats and pointing at the boy shouting: ‘Terrorist, terrorist.’
They panic when they realise he is recording the confrontation and a girl is heard saying: ‘I never gave you permission to film me, you’re going to court.’
When asked to turn off the camera, the Sikh student reacts defensively by claiming: ‘I can’t if you’re being racist to me motherf*****.’
The original video was removed from YouTube but it is thought to have been filmed on the way to a school in the state of Georgia.
