Princess Nokia threw a cup of hot soup at a racist and we love her for it
Bronx rapper Princess Nokia showed her savagery when she slapped a man who called her and a group of teenage boys the n-word on the subway in footage released yesterday.
Upon doing so, the entire train came together and helped get the guy off the train together.
The man, who seemed to be intoxicated and spewing racist insults, kept trying to get his word in and defend his statement- but no one even let it get that far.
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.
The passengers are seen literally kicking the man off the subway, and denying him of his cellphone, which was left inside.
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. Princess Nokia took to Twitter to talk about the incident, proudly stating that yes, she did throw hot soup in that guys face.

“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 New York native shared.
The rapper, who’s real name is Destiny Frasqueri, grew up in NYC, said she is no stranger to racism and “witnesses blatant racism in public constantly.”
Reports claim that after the incident, the rapper and those involved on the train “shared a moment,” holding hands and embracing one another.
“After Bedford, the woman [who first called him out] kind of broke down. She and the larger gentlemen in black embraced and there was a good sense that social justice had been served.”
The community response regarding this incident has been wonderful, with support reigning in for the passengers.
“I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters.”

If what happened wasn’t enough, the man in the video actually shared Facebook posts to help identify himself. According to the Gothamist, “he added that he was ‘not that sorry’ about his behavior, because he ‘enjoys getting a rise out of people.'”
Maybe he gets a rise out of having his ass kicked, too?
