People are cheering for a young Latina woman who confronted an older woman who was harassing a Muslim couple on the New York City subway earlier this month. A video of the encounter was posted to Live Leak, and was later shared by the I'M STILL SO NYC Facebook page. It has since gone viral.
The start of the video shows an older woman berating another woman wearing a headscarf and carrying a briefcase.
"Why are you here? Why are you in this country?" the older woman asks. Another man and woman in the subway car both try unsuccessfully to calm the older woman down before 23-year-old Tracey Tong steps in.
