A mum has had the last laugh after a stranger made a "snide" remark about her in Welsh – not realising she could understand the language.
Nesdi Jones, who is fluent in three languages, was carrying her baby daughter in a sling when the man called her "stupid" among other things.
But he was left pretty sheepish when Welsh singer-songwriter Nesdi quickly replied, reports Wales Online.
The 25-year-old was on a family break with her three-month-old daughter, Cadi-Glyn, and was staying in Morfa Bychan at Greenacres Holiday Park.
As she walked through the caravan park mid-afternoon, she passed a group of people, one of whom turned to his friend and sniggered.
"I had my three-month-old daughter in a sling when I walked past a group of men," she said.
"One bloke just turned around and just sniggered something like ‘look at that woman with her baby stuck on her tummy, stupid’ in Welsh.
"I don’t remember exactly, because I was just so angry. I just turned to him and said ‘I know what you are saying’. They ran off pretty quickly then."
The renowned singer, who is fluent in Welsh, English and Hindi, was brought up in Criccieth.
"If you are going to slag me and my baby off, make sure I can’t understand you," she added.
"It happened to my mum as well, and it happens when I go to India and people say things like ‘white girl’ in Hindi.
"They never expect me to turn around and reply in their language. I guess you get horrid people in every nationality."
Nesdi took to Twitter to vent her fury, and received supportive messages in response.
One replied and said: "Good for you, bullying is bullying in whatever the language, should have kicked him in the b*******, stand up be proud be Welsh, take no s***."
Another said: "Unfortunately every nation has its ignorant gits."
Nesdi’s website describes her as a multi-charting, award-winning singer and rapper in Welsh, Hindi, English and Punjabi.
She also blogs about motherhood and mental health, and has spoken out against sex abuse.
