Princess Nokia Claims She Threw the Soup at the L Train Racist

Princess Nokia Claims She Threw the Soup at the L Train Racist

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.

"But I be damned if i let some drunk bigot call a group of young teenage boys racist names and allow him to get away with it", she tweeted. Lawson can be seen and heard on camera claiming his rationale for unleashing a stream of slurs at black passengers on the train is that he is an New York University Law graduate with rights to the First Amendment.

Many have shown Princess Nokia support, including fellow NYC artist Kimya Dawson, who replied, "I love you and I love NY" to Princess Nokia.

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.

"When I slapped him he called me a nigger, and when I did all my brothers on the train came to my side and held my hand and comforted me", the NY native shared. "Any other racists wanna try us again?"

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

Nokia described how people came together to confront the man.

In the video, you see soup tossed at the guy as he's lying on the ground in an attempt to get up and get his cell phone.

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

Frasqueri isn't visible until she steps forward, wearing an orange dress, to bravely lob the bowl of soup in Lawson's face as he tried stepping back on the train for his bag at the Bedford Ave. stop in Brooklyn.

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.
