Rapper takes credit for dumping hot soup on racist subway rider

Rapper takes credit for dumping hot soup on racist subway rider

The New York City rapper has revealed herself to be the fearless straphanger who lobbed her cup of soup at a belligerent man aboard an L train and slapped him as he went on a racist tirade.

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

"This bigot called a group of teenage boys 'n--' on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up", she said. I'm a lawyer! I went to NYU Law!

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. It take alot of risks trying to stand up to racist & bigots. But not before Nokia threw some hot soup at him.

HuffPost has reached out to Princess Nokia and will update this story accordingly.

It wasn't the first time Frasqueri stood up for herself or others. Passengers confront the man and the train comes to a stop.

"Back the f-k up", Frasqueri exclaims in the video as the man tries to get back onto the train. A woman who can only be heard in the footage dares Lawson to "say it again" before shouting, "This man is a racist!"

The man - who was clutching an open can of Lime-A-Rita - was eventually forced out of the carriage by Nokia and a few other passengers, but not before she cocked her elbow and hurled some soup straight at the man's face.

Nokia, whose legal name is Destiny Frasqueri, tweeted her account of the incident early Wednesday morning. He went on to display his racism once again saying he was "not that sorry", as he was "making a point" by using the racial slurs and that he was a "race-baiter ... not a racist".

If what happened wasn't enough, the man in the video actually shared Facebook posts to help identify himself.
