Princess Nokia, a 25-year-old New York-born musician and club founder, has confirmed on Twitter that she threw hot soup on the man and kicked him on Saturday (local time), after he slapped her and called her a "n**ger".

Footage of a drunken white man identified as Paul Lawson repeatedly calling a group of black teens a racial slur has been making the rounds on social media since Tuesday. "I'm going to put this on the news".

Princess Nokia, the fresh face of hip hop and critical darling known for songs that celebrate a multicultural upbringing in New York City and honor the complexity of her communities, is now known for one more very important thing: heroically rebuking a racist man attempting to harass MTA passengers with a bevy of scathing words. "Everybody's going to know what a bigot you are".

Nobody is trying to hear that, especially not Princess Nokia. When he tries to board the train again to get his belongings, the Afro-Puerto Rican rapper throws soup on him and she and another passenger try to kick him off.

Frasqueri isn't visible until she steps forward, wearing an orange dress, to bravely lob the bowl of soup in Lawson's face as he tried stepping back on the train for his bag at the Bedford Ave. stop in Brooklyn.

"This bigot called a group of teenage boys "n******s" on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up", Nokia wrote on Twitter.

Lawson addressed his racist outburst on Facebook in a post Gothamist captured in a screenshot. He later said he is seeking help after that "unfortunate video".

Frasqueri said that the situation was "painful and humiliating", but that her and her fellow riders stood together "and kicked this disgusting racist off the train so we could ride in peace away from him". According to the Gothamist, "he added that he was "not that sorry" about his behavior, because he 'enjoys getting a rise out of people'".
