This morning, Orange Is The New Black star Lea DeLaria had some strong words for a dreaded homophobic hate-spewing subway preacher on the NYC M train.
DeLaria confronted him for sermonizing against liberals and homosexuals and informed him that he and the Tea Party are “everything that’s wrong with America.”
According to Gothamist:
A tipster who wishes to remain anonymous sent us the following videos, taken on a Queens-bound M train at around 9 a.m. this morning. After engaging her fellow straphangers in a rousing rendition “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” Lea DeLaria, clad in a t-shirt emblazoned with “Bad Jew,” gets right up into the irritating preacher’s face, calling him a “creepy religious fanatic,” accusing him of lobbing a homosexual slur at her and repeatedly begging him to cease his proselytizing:
The tipster tells Gothamist:
I walked onto the F train at W4 station and they were already yelling. And when I got off two stops later at 23rd street, they were still going. A lot of people were standing around taking videos and photos and watching. I think people weren’t sure whether it was real or staged. But a friend later confirmed that she has seen this same man preaching similar things on the subway before, so I’m pretty sure it was real.
Lea DeLaria also earned some congratulatory words on Twitter:
