The rapper explained her food-flinging on Twitter

The soup-flinging woman in a recent video of a drunk racist being tossed from a New York subway was a hero to many who saw her after a clip of the altercation went viral. Little did we know she had quite a few admirers already!

After the video — which shows two men and a woman shove a racist man off of a subway train and refuse to let him back on, and cap the whole thing off by flinging hot soup in his face — went viral, buzzy rapper Princess Nokia revealed that is was her doing the tossing.

She explained why she abandoned her lunch for a higher cause in a series of posts on Twitter.

“This bigot called a group of teenage boys ‘n*ggers’ on the train so I stood up and slapped him and everybody on the train backed me up,” she wrote. “When I slapped him he called me a n*gger, and when I did all my brothers on the train came to my side and held my hand and comforted me.”

The rapper has garnered a lot of attention for body-positive raps like “Tomboy” and the witchcraft-celebrating track “Brujas.” The afro-indigenous Puerto Rican New Yorker has put forth songs from her ultra-unique viewpoint, both as a representative of these cultures and a strange New York art kid. Although she isn’t quite a household name yet, more than a few people have noticed her work.

But it’s fair to say she gained a few more fans with her courage and subsequent explanation.

Although painful and humiliating we stood together and kicked this disgusting racist off the train so we could ride in peace away from him,” she said. “And yes I threw hot soup in this man’s face and kicked him off off the train, and kicked in the face. Any other racists wanna try us again?”
