Earlier this week, a video of a drunk white man hold a Lime-a-Rita using racial slur the N-word, to refer to a group of young black teens, went viral on social media.

Princess Nokia's voice can be heard addressing Lawson, until about the 1:45 mark in the video where she appears on camera as she douses Lawson with a cup full of soup, then physically kicks him out of the train at the Bedford Avenue stop while he continues to taunt her and the rest of the vehicle. Putting yourself in potential danger is scary ASF, esp as a young women. I'm a lawyer! I went to NYU Law!

And that wasn't the first time she stood up for what was right. A woman who can only be heard in the footage dares Lawson to "say it again" before shouting, "This man is a racist!"

As for Lawson, he reportedly called the video of the L train incident "unfortunate" and that he's "getting help". "This man is on the L-train on the way to Brooklyn saying the N-word". She has since verified that she slapped the man after he called a group of boys on the train the n-word, and that the rest of the train auto offered support in standing up to the inebriated racist named Paul Lawson. "I'm going to put this on the news".

In a slew of tweets, Princess Nokia, born Destiny Frasqueri, recounted the incident.

Lawson addressed his racist outburst on Facebook in a post Gothamist captured in a screenshot.

Many have shown Princess Nokia support, including fellow NYC artist Kimya Dawson, who replied, "I love you and I love NY" to Princess Nokia. He later added, "It seems that a lot of hearsay set me off as usual; I'm not that sorry I feel bad I used that word but I was making a point, lots of comedians do that; it's the first fucking amendment and look at the liberal mob beating up the peaceful protester now fucking losers".

Nokia described how people came together to confront the man.
