Watch Princess Nokia destroy a racist dude on the subway

Watch Princess Nokia destroy a racist dude on the subway

A racist commuter shouting the N-word on a NY train had soup poured on his face and was thrown off a train by distressed passengers.

America is seeming like more of a divided country with every passing day, and it seems like every day, a new racially charged video goes viral.

The altercation heightened as the self-proclaimed NYU law grad yammered on about the First Amendment and continued screaming the slur at the top of his lungs, causing passengers to get aggressive and oust him from the train at the next stop. Destiny Fraqueri, also known as Princess Nokia, took to Twitter early Wednesday morning to dish on the incident and claim responsibility for the thrown soup. She said she slapped the man after he called the group of teenage boys the racial slur.

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 act of blatant racism was "heartbreaking to witness", Princess Nokia wrote, adding she took a risk to stand up to the racist, especially as a young woman. "Any other racists wanna try us again?"

Frasqueri defended her actions against the man in follow-up tweets.

It turns out one of the unsung heroes kicking this racist off the train was none other than rapper Princess Nokia.

Gothamist points to some now-deleted Facebook posts from the Lime-A-Rita drinker (whose name is Paul Lawson), responding to the incident.

The important matter is: I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters #blacklivesmatter. "I be damned if i let some drunk bigot call a group of young teenage boys racist names and allow him to get away with it ✊✊✊". He later said he is seeking help after that "unfortunate video".

As the argument with a black man escalates, he's forced off the train - trying several times to get back on.
