Drunk ‘legal scholar’ gets thrown off NYC subway car for yelling racial slurs

Published

On Saturday, bystanders recorded video of a man who identified himself as lawyer who graduated from NYU Law hurling racial slurs on a packed New York City subway car — and then getting what appears to be pumpkin or butternut squash soup thrown on him in retaliation.

First reported by Gothamist, the video shows a visibly drunk man drinking a Bud Lite “Lime-A-Rita” in an altercation with multiple passengers on the L Train.

According to witness Joshua Pyne, the man, who at one point called himself a “legal scholar,” called a young black man a “stupid n***er” for standing too close to him in the very full subway car moments before the video began being recorded. Afterwards, passengers, both white and black, got in his face about it.

After a woman called him a racist, the drunk man doubled down, and angered one passenger so much, they threw soup on him. He was then forcibly pushed off the train by the woman who threw the soup and two other men.

“Get your hate speech out of here, f*ck you,” one man said.

As per Gothamist, NYPD officers at the station where the man was pushed off the train said there were no records of arrest.

The United States announced Friday that it was sending military reinforcements to the Gulf region following attacks on Saudi oil facilities that it attributes to Iran, just hours after President Donald Trump ordered new sanctions on Tehran.

Trump said the sanctions were the toughest-ever against another country, but indicated he did not plan a military strike, calling restraint a sign of strength.

The Treasury Department renewed action against Iran's central bank after US officials said Tehran carried out weekend attacks on rival Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which triggered a spike in global crude prices.
