In the video embedded below, an apparently intoxicated man attacks another passenger who he believes is gay. Within seconds, a number of bystanders leap into action to take the attacker down and hold him until police can handcuff him and lead him away.
The video is dated Thursday, October 23, and shows an unnamed angry man bellowing and threatening another passenger who is wearing a jacket and a pink shirt.
A tall man in a black cowboy hat approaches and asks the angry man what he’s upset about.
“Queers!” the man shouted. “That’s what I’m upset about. This faggot right here.”
After a tense exchange, the angry man kicks the man in the pink shirt, then slaps at him and grabs his hair.
A number of people rush to intervene as the man is tackled and put on the floor.
The man in the cowboy hat can be heard saying loudly, “No way! No way, you motherfucker. You ain’t doin’ that fucking shit, motherfucker.”
