Default Man launches racist tirade against Asian woman on subway


Man launches racist tirade against Asian woman on subway

A New York City straphanger launched a racist tirade against an Asian woman on the subway, using the term “kung flu” in reference to coronavirus, video shows.

PeiJung Lee shared footage Tuesday on Twitter of the unidentified man hurling expletives at her on the train.

“Asian Americans continue to face these racial attacks 6 months in since the pandemic began,” she wrote. “I was verbally abused by this man.”

In the clip, the man can be heard shouting, “You want to be on your kung flu f–king ****, man.”

“You have the right to record me too, you f—ing b—h?” he continued.

Civil liberties groups have said that using “kung flu” to refer to COVID-19 is racist and can fuel anti-Asian sentiments.

In another video, the man is seen verbally harassing another female passenger who asked him to be quiet.

“If you f—ing play with me, I’ll f—ing hurt you,” he says, to which she responds, “I’m just trying to tell you to be quiet.”

After Lee posted the videos online, the New York City Transit Authority replied, saying it takes “reports like this very seriously.”

“There’s absolutely no room for racism on the subway,” the agency wrote on Twitter.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
