Who is Billy Steele? Central Line Tube Racist Man Knocked Unconscious
Billy Steele has been identified as the white man who was knocked unconscious after a shocking racist rant on the tube in which he referred to a group of black passengers as ‘pets’. Billy, 31, is a builder who works for his wealthy parents’ construction firm, MailOnline can reveal.
Steele comes from a wealthy family who owns a construction firm and is understood to work for S&S Steel Fixing Limited, the family-owned business as per the Daily Mail. His mother lives in an £800,000 home in leafy Coulsdon, south London while Billy lives in a smart, gated block of apartments, in Mottingham, south-east London where flats occupied by city high-fliers sell for around £320,000.
Billy Steele Video
Billy Steele was filmed on a Central Line tube launching the shocking tirade at three black passengers in which he told them ‘you’re all going back’.
In the video in which he is dressed in a blue T-shirt and beige shorts, he is seen shouting at a group of black passengers: ‘This is my home and you’re all going back. You know it as well.’ When asked by the group where they will be going back to, he shouts: ‘You know where you’re going back.’
As the passengers ask him his name, he starts shouting ‘You’re black. Oh my god’ at the group while the woman filming asks ‘What’s that supposed to mean?’
Steele then tells the camerawoman to shut up before the footage cuts to him swinging on the handrails singing ‘they’re lesser than us’ repeatedly and saying ‘you’re my pets’ in the direction of the group of young black men.
He then starts screaming the word ‘violence’, prompting a woman to accuse him of being ‘EDL scum’ – an apparent reference to the English Defence League. Billy shouts ‘I don’t roll with EDL scum’ before saying he’s worse than them in the passengers’ eyes and telling the woman to ‘f**k off c**t face.’

In a second video that has gone viral online with 2.4m views shows him walking up to a group of black people as they get off the train at Bank Station. One of them suddenly turns and punches him in the face with a fearsome right hook.
The man falls back across the train carriage, completely knocked out. A woman can be heard laughing as he lies on the floor before shouts break out.
Billy Steele’s Mother Statement
Billy’s mother, Toni Steele said her son had handed himself to the police and told officers he doesn’t want to press assault charges against the black man who knocked him out. Mrs Steele confirmed: ‘Billy is on this video that has gone viral. He has gone to the police and owned up. He doesn’t want the man who hit him to be punished.
‘He is getting help for his behaviour,’ she added.
