S(o)uper Star: This NYC Rapper Threw Soup At L-Train Racist

While the soup-thrower was initially anonymous, NYC emcee Princess Nokia eventually came forward and claimed responsibility.

Princess Nokia performs onstage during day 2 of FYF Fest 2017 at Exposition Park on July 22, 2017 in Los Angeles. "When I slapped him he called me a n--, and when I did all my brothers on the train came to my side and held my hand and comforted me".

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 auto. "I went to NYU Law", the man said. A woman who can only be heard in the footage dares Lawson to "say it again" before shouting, "This man is a racist!"

"Although painful and humiliating we stood together and kicked this disgusting racist off the train so we could ride in peace away from him", she wrote.

It wasn't the first time Frasqueri stood up for herself or others.

"The man apparently first got into an argument with teenagers regarding personal space, and then yelled the N-word as they left the train", Joshua Pyne, who took the video and posted it to Facebook page, told the New York Daily News, Tuesday.

In a slew of tweets, Princess Nokia, born Destiny Frasqueri, recounted the incident. Passengers confront the man and the train comes to a stop. He said he used the word to "mak [e] a point" and that he feels "bad" but he's "not that sorry".

The important matter is: I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters #blacklivesmatter. He later said he is seeking help after that "unfortunate video". 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". Those who witnessed the incident on Monday (Oct. 9) acted upon it, pushing the man off the train and stopping him from harming others.
