Rapper takes credit for dumping hot soup on racist subway rider

The moment Princess Nokia lobbed a bowl of soup at Lime-A-Rita racist Paul Lawson

On Wednesday, the Bronx-based rapper outed herself as the woman who threw hot soup at a man spewing racial slurs on the L train. In the video passengers, in true NY fashion, don't put up with the antagonizing asshole and force him off the train at the Bedford Ave station. This all went down on the L train (the most liberal of trains!) to Brooklyn (the liberalist of boroughs!), where Nokia joined in with other commuters to forcibly remove the man from the train, before throwing a cup of soup on him. The rapper holds nothing back, and explains that the incident led to a strong showing of solidarity, as numerous passengers ultimately stood by her.

Frasqueri said that it takes a lot of risks to stand up to racist and bigots. A woman who can only be heard in the footage dares Lawson to "say it again" before shouting, "This man is a racist!" She said she slapped the man after he called the group of teenage boys the racial slur.

In the cell phone video, Frasqueri, wearing an orange dress, can be seen hurling her soup at the out-of-control rider after the man was shoved out of the train doors and onto the platform by other straphangers.

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

It was a "painful and humiliating" experience, but the Harlem rapper said that she "will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters". The local outlet also reports that Lawson said he was a "race-baiter in this context, not a racist", and that he "enjoys getting a rise out of people".

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.

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.
