Drunk subway racist gets soup thrown at him for shouting N-word
At about 2 pm on Saturday a dude clutching a Lime-A-Rita was doused in soup and booted from the Brooklyn-bound L train after repeatedly yelling the N-word on a New York City subway car.
According to Gothamist, the soup target got into an argument with a group of young black men over personal space and tempers flared from there. Witness Josh Pyne said video of the altercation began after the drunk guy called the men in the video the N-word. He is heard using the racial slur throughout the video.
“I talk shit because I know I can, because I’m a lawyer,” said the man drinking from an open container in public in the afternoon. “I went to NYU Law. Fuck you!”
Cool. What did your fancy law school tell you about openly boozing on the subway?
As you can imagine, use of a racial slur unified the car against the racist enjoying an early happy hour, and they united in forcibly removing him from the subway car when it pulled into Williamsburg. One woman tried to expedite his exit by pelting him with soup.
“The guy didn’t seem to be falling-down drunk,” Pyne said, “but was… clearly belligerent.”
It was still early. I’m sure by 5 pm he didn’t even know his own name despite claiming to be a “legal scholar” in response to being accused of racism.
