In a footage shared widely on social media, a woman was filmed throwing a drink over Leo Varadkar as he gave an interview in Dublin.
The video clip shows the woman, who was wearing a face mask, walking over to where the 41-year-old leader was standing.
She briefly speaks to a member of the crew, then walks over to the country’s Indian-origin deputy PM and tosses liquid from a cup at his face. She then drops the cup and runs away.
Take a look:
You can dislike Leo Varadkar, you can criticise his policies, you can disagree with him, but this is nasty and unnecessary thing to do. pic.twitter.com/ze8eVByU3S— Darren Cleary (@RadioCleary) September 18, 2020
