A British man has hit back at ‘ignorant Americans’ whom British people called ‘p******’ for describing 89F Day as ‘the hottest of the year’.

Ryan Meyrick, 27, a Cheshire train dispatcher, has gone viral on TikTok after responding to a video of a US-based woman claiming 89F is ‘not that hot’ and Britons were ‘weak’ to complain .

Insisting that she – and the people commenting on her video – should ‘educate’ themselves, Ryan explained that temperatures in the UK feel higher due to a lack of air con and heavily insulated buildings.

His video quickly gained over 200,000 views with hundreds of Americans and other people from warm countries saying they can’t handle the heat in the UK despite experiencing much higher temperatures elsewhere.

“Point number one, we don’t have air conditioning anywhere,” he explained.

“Except the shops. Some places will have it. But most houses do not have air conditioning.

“They are not built with air conditioning, the best we can have is portable stuff.

‘Point number two is that our buildings are insulated down to the last detail.

‘Because we usually have mild summers and cold winters.

“So our buildings are designed to retain heat to save energy costs.

And number three, your body will adapt to the climate you live in.

‘We don’t have that much warm weather, it takes about two to three weeks.
