Original article from Kent Live
A Kent woman has been filmed laughing during a TikTok video while her boyfriend made racist and xenophobic comments.
Kelly Moore can be seen cackling and swatting her then-boyfriend Cameron Timlin's face while he made a number of racist comments and told viewers "I don't like Black people".
Dad Cameron, who is from Leicester, went on a racist rant and asked viewers: “What gives the right of black people f***ing coming over to our country.”
According to The Mirror, when challenged by a female viewer Cameron added: "Shut the f*** up before I dropkick you, you little silly b****."

In the video, he can also be heard saying: "Black people make me sick."
Kelly defended Cameron in an accompanying web chat, saying: "He’s not a racist, babe."
The racist comments sparked anger from viewers, one of whom said she reported the video to TikTok as hate speech. However, she was told that the video did not violate the community guidelines.
Since then the Mirror has contacted TikTok, which said the user has been banned.
In the video, while scrolling through viewers' comments, Kelly said: "A lot of people in here had our back and helped."
After Camon said "I don't like black people" Kelly swats Cameron's face and says "you're really pushing your luck, be nice".
She laughed as she told Cameron she had blocked a user who wrote "you don't like black people but you act like one".
The shocking video can be viewed above.
It was streamed at around 6am on Monday. Cameron's account had 3,800 followers but is no longer active.
TikTok said the account had been banned for "multiple violations".
The video also showed Cameron, who is in his 20s, also repeatedly said "EDL", in an apparent reference to the English Defence League, a far-right Islamophobic group.
At one point while saying it made an "OK" hand gesture.
The finger and thumb gesture has been hijacked by far-right groups and is used as a symbol of white supremacy.
The US-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has added the gesture to its list of hate symbols.
After making the reference Kelly defends Cameron. She said: “People are winding him up and then his mouth runs away with him. He don’t actually mean any of it.”
But Cameron replies: "No, I mean EDL."
Another TikTok account had videos showing Cameron lip-syncing or dancing to music by black artists. This account has now disappeared.
When contacted by the Mirror, Cameron declined to comment on the video, saying: "I'm not interested."
Kelly's sister, Sophie, told the Mirror that Kelly has "come off all social media to protect her children due to this video and the comments that Cameron has made".
Sophie defended her sister, saying: "If you have seen the video you will see that there was no comments from her, it was all Cameron’s words which, no, I do not agree with.
"She doesn’t agree with what he’s done."
Cameron and Kelly, who both have young children from previous relationships, are no longer dating. According to Sophie, the relationship ended because of the video.
A TikTok user reported Kelly and Cameron's video to the social media giant as "hate speech", but was initially told it did not violate the platform's guidelines.
The woman said: "It went on for five minutes of him saying racist things and her giggling in the background."
She added: "I don’t stand for racism, so I joined (the live stream) and I said something.
"I reported the video while I was in the live, as 'hate speech', and a TikTok message popped up and said the reported content does not violate community guidelines.
"All they’re saying is, 'we're not getting rid of the racists on TikTok'."
A spokesperson for TikTok said: "TikTok has no higher priority than keeping our community safe.
"We do not tolerate hate speech, which we define as content that attacks or incites violence against anyone based on protected attributes, and this user has been banned from TikTok."
