HOLLA ON THE GO: I was on a Manhattan bound E train…
I was on a Manhattan bound E train in Queens at about 10pm on a weeknight. A man comes on the train begging for change, shouting, “Will somebody help me? Why won’t anyone help me?”. He was apparently upset that no one would give him anything and decided to single me out, screaming, “And this bitch! Bitch! Bitch, with your paper!” I was reading a newspaper which he tried to knock out of my hand. I froze; I just kept staring at my newspaper trying to ignore him while he screamed at me. He must have called me a bitch almost a dozen times before shouting, “I hope you get raped tonight!” and leaving the train. It was terrifying and absolutely awful.
There were a handful of people on the train and no one said anything (but I imagine they were also uncomfortable). I really wish the MTA would do something to stop this sort of thing from happening.
