Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, has been charged with racially aggravated common assault and a racially aggravated public order offence, said police.
A seven-minute video of a woman’s racist ranting was uploaded on YouTube last month and got thousands of hits.
In the video a woman is shown shouting at two Asian men on a packed Underground train and then appears to shout abuse to the person filming her.
A British Transport Police spokesman said: ‘I can confirm that Jacqueline Woodhouse, 42, of Romford has been charged with racially aggravated common assault and a racially aggravated public order offence.
“This is in relation to an incident on board a Central line Tube train on Monday 23 January.
“Woodhouse has been remanded in custody and will next appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 8 February 2012.”
