Yesterday, a video of a white male on the New York subway screaming “nigger” at the top of his lungs went viral via @balleralert. It’s a downright tiresome display of the dude’s “first amendment rights,” among other figures of speech. The important piece is the crowd’s reaction in backing him off the train, and NYC rapper Princess Nokia throwing a cup of hot soup at the guy, as you can see in the video below.
You may be thinking, “There’s no way this was actually Princess Nokia captured on Twitter on an actual subway,” but this is a case where stars aren’t only “just like us,” they’re real and they’re among us. Princess Nokia’s reaction is inspiring and affirming—a beacon of badassery, if you will, in the cowardly tunnel of alt-right internet traffic. Princess Nokia confirmed that it was indeed her and commented on the incident afterwards on Twitter.
