    Default Couple singing Peppa Pig tune to toddler forced off bus

    A young South Yorkshire couple were kicked off a bus and accused of racism – for singing the Peppa Pig theme to their baby daughter.


    Nick Barnfield and fiancee Sarah Cleaves were travelling home when they started singing to their 15 month-old girl Heidi.


    They said the toddler gets upset in crowded places and they hoped the tune from her favourite show – complete with pig-like snorts – would help calm her.


    But an Asian woman accused them of being racist and reported them to the driver of the X78 First bus.


    And to their astonishment he then ordered them off and threatened to call police if they refused.


    Nick, 24, who was returning from a hospital visit in Sheffield for epileptic tests, said: “It was so embarrassing, everyone on the bus was watching.


    “A lady in her 30s came up to us and quite aggressively started telling us we were irresponsible parents and that we were being racist singing the song.


    “I told her I didn’t know what she was going on about but she accused us of being in the EDL.


    “She was saying, ‘You’re irresponsible parents teaching your child to be racist’. ‘You shouldn’t be singing that to your daughter, it’s a song about pigs and it’s racist’.
