Commuting is chaotic enough without sexist taunts from your rail company flashing across official screens.
CrossCountry commuters were shocked to see the words "only fit birds on this train" appear on the LED screens above carriage doors normally used for travel advice.
It was spotted about 8:30am on the service between Basingstoke, Hants and Reading, Berks on Thursday.
Tomasz Nicpon described it as "very sexist" and said other passengers "were laughing and taking photos".
The dad-of-one, 37, said he was concerned over what his five-year-old daughter might think if she saw the message:
One passenger said ‘I think somebody is drunk’
I was upset as sometimes I travel by train with my five-year-old daughter.
How would I be able to explain this message to her? The message is very sexist.
Some people on the train were laughing but other people, especially women, were not happy about this message.
I have no idea how this happened but I believe someone unauthorised accessed the computer and changed it to display this message.
In my opinion this could be a group of teenagers as I cannot imagine an adult writing this type of the message.
CrossCountry described the language used as “unacceptable". A spokesperson said:
Shortly after the train's departure we were informed this message was being displayed and made immediate arrangements for its removal.
Such language is unacceptable to everyone at CrossCountry and an investigation is currently underway involving those who had access to the onboard systems to determine who was responsible.
This is not the first time the railway has hit the headlines for bigotry on board.
Disabled comedian Tanyalee Davis was 'left stranded' on a moving train for over an hour after rail staff failed to bring her a ramp meaning she missed her stop last month.
