Video: Irishman's staged altercation with breastfeeding woman on Tube riles up fellow passengers


AN IRISHMAN in London has gone viral for his extreme reaction to a woman breastfeeding on the Tube - but it's all for a social experiment.

Offaly-born actor James Slattery, 36, was recruited for the video by Trollstation, a YouTube channel that regularly tackles controversial topics for its social experiments.

In the video, James takes on a breastfeeding woman - also an actress - to see how people react.

"Just go onto another carriage. Irish people don't expose themselves like this," he says in the video, addressing the breastfeeding mother.

After a couple of minutes of a heated exchange between the actors, the other Tube passengers get involved.

Watch the video and judge for yourself - do you think the other passengers were right?
