Watch: Passengers ignored this homophobic thug attacking a trans woman on subway
A New York trans woman filmed the moment she was assaulted and called a ‘f**king homo’ in a busy subway car – as no one stepped in to defend her.
Pearl Love began filming after a woman sat opposite her on the New York Subway started taunting her.
Love filmed the woman making a number of shocking racist, homophobic and transphobic remarks – branding her a “a f****** homo” and mocking her Asian heritage.
The rant continued: “You living in a man’s penis and body with women’s make-up on”.
“You a transvestite, suck my dick. Bitch bye, you ain’t nothing. You a fu**ing homo gay motherf**ker in some women’s products and whatnots.
“Who are you really under all that make-up? Where’d you come from? How we supposed to act with you?
“This s**t right here ain’t appropriate for my child, I don’t give a f**k. I’ll fight you right now.”
The woman continues to mock Love’s Asian heritage, continuing: “Whoever that motherf**ker there is in Taiwan or Tokyo, f**k y’alls emperor. Y’all motherf**kers ain’t s**t.”
At the end of the clip the woman appears to physically assault Love, threatening her into turning the camera off.
Love recalled: “”I ignored her and kept reading my book. When the train got to 86st St. she started getting so loud and crazy yelling at me, so I started to record her on my phone – she started getting even louder and started assault me and hit me.
“As you can see it’s definitely a hate crime. She attacked me inside the train .
“When I retreated she threw all my stuff on the floor and chased me around the train and say she is going to find a stick to hit me.
“It was a crowded train and everyone heard it but no one helped me. Guys acting like nothing happened.”
