The member of the public can be heard asking the English Defence League co-founder “Are you just spouting any old s****?” as the pair stand talking outside a shop.
The context of the heated exchange is not completely clear and parts of the video are inaudible, but Mr Robinson can be heard telling the woman she is “missing the point” and that “the top judge in the country found I didn’t pervert the course of justice”.
The woman responds: “Would you have done it if it were a group of white men?”
The pair appear to be referring to postponed court proceedings into whether Mr Robinson committed contempt of court after allegedly recording a Facebook live video during a grooming gang trial at Leeds Crown Court.
Mr Robinson was not charged with perverting the course of justice, which is a different offence.
The contempt case was quashed because of procedural failings and Mr Robinson will face a new hearing at the High Court in London later this month.
The woman, who is holding on to the handle of a pram with a baby inside, later tells Mr Robinson: “Well I don’t know about these things, do I?”
When he says “I do”, the woman retorts: “Do you really, or are you just spouting any old s****?”
She then says she is entitled to her opinion and turns to walk off.
The video went viral on Twitter after it was shared by user @redbethmond, alongside the comment: “Tommy Robinson thinking he can use Salford as a recruiting ground and getting seen off by this woman is so good.”
