If you didn't already know that Princess Nokia doesn't take any shit, perhaps this video of her throwing soup in a racist man's face on the subway get you up to date. The incident occurred after the inebriated man got into a spat about personal space with some young black men, resulting in him yelling the n-word at them.
America is seeming like more of a divided country with every passing day, and it seems like every day, a new racially charged video goes viral.
In the footage, Lawson is heard claiming he's a lawyer who studied at NYU. It turns out the soup thrower is none other than rising local rapper Princess Nokia!
'Legends of Tomorrow': Victor Garber to Exit CW Drama in Season 3
Entertainment Weekly notes that Garber and Peters will be replacing David Hyde Pierce and Bette Midler in the musical. But an important detail from the Deadline article makes a good case for the departure of the main cast member.
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. She said she slapped the man after he called the group of teenage boys the racial slur.
"It takes a lot of risk, trying to stand up to racists and bigots".
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 auto.

Lawson addressed his racist outburst on Facebook in a post Gothamist captured in a screenshot.
"I will do anything to defend the honor of my brothers and sisters", she continued.
Props to Princess Nokia for standing up to racism. He said he used the word to "mak [e] a point" and that he feels "bad" but he's "not that sorry".

While she admitted later on Twitter that the situation was "painful and humiliating", Nokia said she'd "be damned if I let some drunk bigot call a group of young teenage boys racist names and allow him to get away with it". He later said he is seeking help after that "unfortunate video". In May, he reportedly taunted a black man on a train for 20 minutes.
