A Girl Created a Frightful Facebook Album to Bring Awareness to Post-Brexit Racism

Last week's Brexit vote has given rise to a resurgence of racism in the UK.

The incidents range from harassment to assault. Most of which, done by people who probably have zero idea what UK leaving the EU actually means.

European migrants across the UK seem to be the major target in these reported incidents.

National Health Services (NHS) worker Kara Florish took to Twitter to document receiving a body-image shaming business card on London's Underground.

The card, which states to be from a group called "Overweight Haters Ltd", reads "fat" in large letters on one side. The other side contains a paragraph with a description of the "organization".

Writer Sean Thomas Knox witnessed a similar, separate body-shaming card incident, and tweeted about it's authenticity.

British Transport Police on Twitter are asking anyone with any information to get in touch with them.
