“And yes I threw hot soup in this mans face,” the 25-year-old “Tomboy” artist tweeted early Wednesday. “Any other racists wanna try us again?”
Princess Nokia, whose real name is Destiny Frasqueri, said she slapped the Lime-A-Rita guzzling Paul Lawson after he hurled his L-train hate rant at a group of teen boys.
“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.
The wordsmith claims she was one of several irate straphangers who berated Lawson on stunning cell phone footage for badgering commuters with the N-word. She dared the drunken loser to utter the slur one more time.
“Say it again. This man is a racist. This man is on the L-train on the way to Brooklyn saying the N-word,” the woman said. “I’m going to put this on the news. Everybody’s going to know what a bigot you are.”
Frasqueri did not immediately respond to a request for comment on her apparent heroics.
She is not visible in the footage until she steps forward, wearing an orange dress, to 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.
She then boots Lawson onto the platform with a kick after ordering him to “get off the train.”
“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, who reportedly lied about attending NYU’s Law School, refused to apologize for his hateful slurs in a string of since-deleted Facebook posts, according to Gothamist. He later said he is seeking help after that “unfortunate video.”
