Many social media users nicknamed the attacker “Subway Sally,” linking her to the increasing number of racist incidents that are going viral.
Throughout the two clips, the 40-year-old is seen hitting the Asian woman with an umbrella and keys, spitting and calling her a racial slur.
Several other subway riders tried to de-escalate the situation by standing between the women. Once the crowd heard Lushchinskaya call the Asian victim a “c**nk,” the train car erupted in disgust.
