Man Smacks Woman Back After She First Hit Him On NY Subway - Who Do You Support?

Posted in: , ,

A YouTube video showing a young woman getting slapped by a man and starting a free-for-all fight on the subway has recently gone viral. The event happened on Saturday on the New York F train en route to Washington Square station and the police have said that four people were arrested after the incident.

The video 'Man smacks the soul out of girl on the NY Subway' has over 2Million views as I'm writing, and truly that slap was LOUD and it's a wonder the girl did not collapse. But I actually laughed at the slap because I felt the young woman deserved it after she had been verbally harassing the man, even going as far as hitting him, and knocking down other people's videos.

So do you think the man was right to slap her back? Or should he have kept quiet like he did with her taunting?

For those who can't watch the video, here's how NY Daily News reports it.

Danay Howard, 21, is seen in a video posted to Youtube on Saturday being egged on by friends as she taunts Jorge Pena, 25, over his style sense on the uptown bound F train near W. 4th St. shortly before 5 a.m., police said.

Pena, who is seen in the video wearing a red, white, and black 8 Ball leather jacket and a fur hat, at first nods and smiles, but things soon turn ugly, the video shows.

“You got a bum ass eight ball jacket that came out in 1990,” Howard said to Pena before telling him to “just get your money up, simple.”

Eventually, the man filming the incident caught Howard and her cohorts attention. The three women jump up from their seat and knock the phone from his hands twice.

Moments later, as Pena’s face is off camera, a male voice is heard calling Howard a “dirty b----”.

“What’d you call me?” Howard yells as she swings a leopard print high-heel and strikes Pena in the head, the video shows.

Pena then turns and slaps Howard across the face.

The blow knocks the woman back five feet as another man jumps in and exchange punches with the attacker as chaos breaks out on the train.

Howard and Pena were arrested at the W. 4th St. subway station around 5 a.m. along with Kevin Gil, 21, and Shanique Campbell, 20, who were apparently supporting Howard and had jumped into the melee after the slap, police said.

Pena, Gil, and Campbell were charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, police said.

Howard was charged with felony assault for using a weapon - the shoe - in the attack.
