Morning commuters are heralding a “hero” subway passenger after he intervened in an exchange between a young boy and a “drunk man” hurling racist insults.
According to a video posted by “The Sun,” a white man was recorded on a commuter train in the U.K. as he was berating the boy.
The footage came from Lex Blondin, who posted the video on Instagram. It’s now been seen over 15,000 times. “Watch this nasty racist as*hole get shut down by an absolute hero!” he said in the description of the video.
“What’s the point of being racist?” Blondin can be heard off-camera asking the man.
“I’m a racist because you’re stupid,” the man responded.
The young boy explains he was minding his own business and hadn’t provoked the older man when the attacks began.
“You are doing something, you’re a citizen here for some reason,” the man shot back.
That’s when a bystander walked into the scene, telling the older man to be quiet.
“You need to shut up, you’ve been disturbing this boy for a long time and we’re all getting f*ck off with you,” the bystander said. “You’re drunk. Leave him alone, alright? You’re clearly f*cking racist. Leave him alone! We’re all sitting there calm, and someone has to say something to you because you’re ridiculous. You’re pathetic.”
Finally, at the end, the man moved off of the train and the train erupted into applause, Blondin described.
“Mega hero :1. Mega arseh*le racist :0,” he posted.

Trump’s closing argument to women: ‘We’re getting your husbands back to work’
One week before the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump made his closing argument to women at a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan.
"I love women and I can't help it, they're the greatest," Trump said, four years after the Access Hollywood tape was released which showed him bragging about sexually assaulting strangers.
"I love them much more than the men," he added.
Trump also made an economic argument that sounded as dated as his talk about "suburban housewives."
"We're getting your husbands -- they want to get back to work, right? We're getting your husbands back to work," he argued.
Trump chants ‘COVID!’ ten times in a row after Obama slams him as ‘jealous’ of virus
President Donald Trump on Tuesday again complained about the amount of media coverage being given to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Trump made the remarks at a campaign event in Lansing, Michigan, where he reminded supporters that he had been infected by the virus.
"I would like to give me full credit," the president said of his recovery. "I don't want to give the drug any credit. I want to say, because I am a very young person that's in perfect physical shape, I took that virus and I woke up the next morning and I felt like Superman."
Trump then motioned to members of the media at the event.
Trump abruptly pulls ads out of Florida as his campaign funds dwindle: report
President Trump's campaign has withdrawn advertising from the state of Florida, shifting its dwindling funds to the "industrial northern states" that carried him to victory in 2016, Bloomberg reports.
In the final week of the campaign, Trump is focusing all his energy on the battleground states of Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Pennsylvania -- where polls show he's behind Joe Biden with the exception of Ohio.
"Since the beginning of the fall campaign on Labor Day, Trump has cut $24 million from his national ad budget, while former Vice President Joe Biden has added $197 million," Bloomberg reports. "Biden has outspent Trump three-to-one over that time."
