Princess Nokia Throws Soup At Racist Subway Passenger

Over the weekend, the MC-born Destiny Nicole Frasqueri was travelling on a crowded L train in the city when she became involved in an altercation with a man who was shouting racist slurs at a group of teenagers.

The video depicts a man yelling the n-word on a train while several people confront him for his behavior.

"Say it again. This man is a racist".

Upon doing so, the entire train came together and helped get the guy off the train together.

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.

As the doors open, passengers force the man off the train.

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.

"I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters."
She explained over Twitter that she slapped him after he called a group of teen boys n***ers, and reinforced her commitment to hold racists to account.

Gothamist points to some now-deleted Facebook posts from the Lime-A-Rita drinker (whose name is Paul Lawson), responding to the incident. In May, he reportedly taunted a black man on a train for 20 minutes.

"The black guy is like, 'You're yelling racist and hateful things at people, we don't do that in NY, that's just not what's going to happen, '" Fuller told Gothamist.

Princess Nokia's voice can be heard addressing Lawson, until about the 1:45 mark in the video where she appears on camera as she douses Lawson with a cup full of soup, then physically kicks him out of the train at the Bedford Avenue stop while he continues to taunt her and the rest of the vehicle.

In support of Princess Nokia's original involvement, New Yorkers went... well, New York, and did what they do best: Kicked some uncultured, racist ass.
