Earlier this week Gothamist shared a video of an inebriated man drinking a Lime-A-Rita during the afternoon on the Brooklyn-bound L train yelling racial slurs to black passengers.
"And yes I threw hot soup in this mans face and kicked him off the train", the 25-year-old Big Apple native tweeted in a series of tweets early Wednesday.
While she admitted later on Twitter that the situation was "painful and humiliating", Nokia said she'd "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". 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. When he tries to board the train again to get his belongings, the Afro-Puerto Rican rapper throws soup on him and she and another passenger try to kick him off. It take alot of risks trying to stand up to racist & bigots.More news: Space Station Astronauts Taking Spacewalk Today

Many have shown Princess Nokia support, including fellow NYC artist Kimya Dawson, who replied, "I love you and I love NY" to Princess Nokia.
"When I slapped him, he called me a n--r, and when I did all my brothers on the train came to my side and held my hand and comforted me", Frasqueri recalled. But right as our heroes are throwing the alleged NYU graduate bodily from the auto, a woman in a yellow dress and red kicks tossed soup on him.
Once the subway arrived as a stop, riders banded together to push the man off the train. It's insane to see shit like this popping off, and suffice it to say, the racist man will probably think twice before he starts popping off with racial slurs. "I feel bad I used that word but I was making a point", he wrote in the post, according to Gothamist. The rapper holds nothing back, and explains that the incident led to a strong showing of solidarity, as numerous passengers ultimately stood by her. He later said he is seeking help after that "unfortunate video".
