Kiwi called a fat Australian bitch - Czech mate...
Kiwi woman called a fat Australian bitch - Czech mate...
A Czech-born woman has been fined in England after calling her New Zealand-born neighbour a "stupid fat Australian bitch".
Kiwi Chelsea O'Reilly has also been awarded compensation following Petra Mills's drunken rant against her on their street in Macclesfield, northwest England, the Daily Mail reports.
Miss O'Reilly was giving a statement to police after a domestic incident in September between Mills and her husband when Mills stormed over to her house and began screaming at her.
At a trial in Macclesfield Magistrates Court, Miss O'Reilly said: "She called me a stupid fat Australian bitch. Because of my accent there can be some confusion over my nationality. She knew I was from New Zealand.
"She was trying to be offensive. I was really insulted."
Mills told the court she shouted at Miss O'Reilly but it had nothing to do with racism.
"I did not use the word Australian. I used to live with an Australian person. She was very nice."
Mills, 31, was fined £110 ($215) for racially aggravated public disorder and £200 for kicking a police officer during her arrest.
She was also ordered to pay both her victims £50 compensation and £500 court costs.
