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

Published

on

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.

As the Democratic debates begin, media commenters wondered why a credible accusation of rape against a sitting President is not enough to permanently sink his chances at re-election, with some blaming the media for moving on too fast.

Writing in the conservative publication The Bulwark, Jonathan V. Last notes that the media did its job. And that it's the US public that lacks the moral compass to ditch the president, despite multiple allegations of sexual assault.

President Donald Trump lashed out at a U.S. women's national soccer team who has publicly criticized him.

Team co-captain Megan Rapinoe, who joined former NFL player Colin Kaepernick's kneeling protest during the National Anthem, strongly denied that she would accept the president's invitation to visit the White House if her squad wins the Women’s World Cup now underway.

“I’m not going to the f*cking White House,” Rapinoe told Eight by Eight Magazine, saying she doubted Trump would risk inviting them. “We’re not gonna be invited. I doubt it.”

Trump has canceled visits by other championship teams, such as this year’s Philadelphia Eagles, after most of the players vowed to decline the invitation.
