Remember the obnoxiously awful subway party train video we shared with you yesterday? We finally have a first person account of just how horrible they really were to the people on the train. But guess what? The guy on the train is kind of a jerk too!
Here is what a tipster emailed us:
I was coming back from the Mets game with a friend from out of town around 11:45-midnight Saturday night. We took the 7 train to Bryant Park and switched to the F (I live in Dumbo and the A and C were running on the F line in Brooklyn). At West 4th our train announced it was going express and skipping York St so we got off and waited on the platform for the next train. We noticed six flamboyant kids, three guys (based on stereotypes and their rainbow bead necklaces alone, probably gay) and three girls (their ugliness confirmed our suspicion that the boys were indeed gaylords)—one had paint on his cheeks. Based on their boarding at West 4th and age (looked like they were 18-20 years old), I naturally assumed they were NYU students, but it is summertime, and who knows. An F train pulled up, we boarded unbeknownst of their plans. After sitting down, one of the boys (definitely gay now that we heard his voice) announces (and I'm paraphrasing here), "Attention ladies and gentlemen, this subway car is about to be transformed into a subway party. If you want to stay, you are welcome to, but if not please move to the other car now."
While this guy and his friend are true heroes for making fun of these kids to their faces, did he really have to inject the homophobic jabs when retelling the story to us? Ugh, Mets fans. So this just proves that everyone is a little bit of an asshole. I'm moving upstate somewhere and getting a dog. The rest of you can have the stupid subway.
