Rapper Princess Nokia throws hot soup on man after racist subway outburst
12 October 2017, 07:16 | Joann Bryant
Princess Nokia said on Wednesday she was the woman that threw the soup at a subway racist
The man, who seemed to be intoxicated and spewing racist insults, kept trying to get his word in and defend his statement- but no one even let it get that far.
This isn't the first time Princess Nokia has stood up for what's right. Lawson goes on to yell, repeatedly, "First Amendment, N****r".
Holding a Lime-a-Rita on the L train in New York City, the man verbally assaults the group while another man tries to block his path to the passengers.
University spokesperson John Beckman has confirmed that the man, Paul Lawson did not attend NYU Law. A woman who can only be heard in the footage dares Lawson to "say it again" before shouting, "This man is a racist!"
A drunk man got hot soup thrown at his face after he said the N-word on a train.
Frasqueri said that the situation was "painful and humiliating", but that her and her fellow riders stood together "and kicked this disgusting racist off the train so we could ride in peace away from him".
The enraged man appeared drunk as he held a can of what is believed to be a pre-mixed margarita and lime, when he heckled others riding the NY train from Brooklyn. The woman goes on to say, "I'm going to put this on the news. Everybody's going to know what a bigot you are".
"This bigot called a group of teenage boys 'n--' on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up", she said.
Nokia, whose legal name is Destiny Frasqueri, tweeted her account of the incident early Wednesday morning.
He's since addressed the video in a series of Facebook posts. He later said he is seeking help after that "unfortunate video".
There is another incident involving racist intent involving Lawson from May of this year, where he verbally belittles a Black man for over 20 minutes.
In response to Princess Nokia's tweets, several people have also voiced their support for New Yorkers fighting back against white supremacy.
