Despite not being a hate crime category, shocking levels of ginger abuse have been recorded, including one victim threatened over Facebook: “I’m going to fucking petrol bomb your house you motherfucking anorexic ginger bitch.”

Many other victims were abused through facebook, one reported being called a “ginger ugly piece of shit.”

The information shows the abuse was also directed at the GMP officers themselves, whilst searching an offender one officer reported being spat at and called a “ginger fucking wanker”.

Fresher and fellow ginge Frances, 18, is too familiar with the haters:“I have experienced verbal abuse due to my hair colour, knocking my self-confidence.”

Second year Fia has noticed the abuse since dying her hair red: “Since dying my hair ginger drunk guys come up to me and ask if the carpet matches the drapes. Also, a lot of people like to pull on it in clubs.”
