Rapper takes credit for dumping hot soup on racist subway rider

Earlier this week Gothamist shared a video of an inebriated man drinking a Lime-A-Rita during the afternoon on the Brooklyn-bound L train yelling racial slurs to black passengers.

And yes I threw hot soup in this mans face and kicked him off off the train, and kicked in the face. 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.

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.

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.

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.


Princess Nokia is taking credit for throwing soup on a racist subway passenger recently.

She added: "although painful and humiliating we stood together and kicked this disgusting racist off the train so we could ride in peace away from him".

And that wasn't the first time she stood up for what was right.

Today though, it's NY rapper Princess Nokia's turn to take on the dickheads.

As for Lawson, he reportedly called the video of the L train incident "unfortunate" and that he's "getting help". The rapper holds nothing back, and explains that the incident led to a strong showing of solidarity, as numerous passengers ultimately stood by her. "Any other racists wanna try us again?" the 25-year-old Harlem artist tweeted. He said he used the word to "mak [e] a point" and that he feels "bad" but he's "not that sorry".
