Watch New York Rapper Princess Nokia Hurl Hot Soup At A Racist’s Face

"I'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."

Well, hasn’t this just turned into the week of rappers refusing to take shit from anyone?

A couple of days ago, UK act Loyle Carner made headlines for kicking out a sexist fan who had been yelling abuse at his female support act. Today though, it’s New York rapper Princess Nokia’s turn to take on the dickheads.

Over the weekend, the MC born Destiny Nicole Frasqueri was travelling on a crowded L train in the city when she became involved in an altercation with a man who was shouting racist slurs at a group of teenagers.

“This bigot called a group of teenage boys “n******s” on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up,” Nokia wrote on Twitter. “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.”

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.

The entire incident was captured on video, watch it below:

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.” Read her full response below.

Unsurprisingly, people are pretty damn into it.
