More than 120,000 people have viewed the clip, called My Tram Experience since it was posted online yesterday (Sunday).

The Advertiser understands the incident took place three weeks ago on the number 3 service between New Addington and Wimbledon.
Widespread coverage of the incident sparked a British Transport Police (BTP) investigation and led Transport for London to condemn her actions.
This evening the BTP confirmed a 34-year-old from New Addington had been arrested on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence.
