Paul Lawson, the man filmed yelling the n-word on the L train has made his thoughts known via a series of now deleted Facebook posts that were preserved by Gothamist:
In response to criticism from several commenters, he added that he was “not that sorry I feel bad I used that word but I was making a point, lots of comedians do that; it’s the first fucking ammendment and look at the liberal mob beating up the peaceful protester now fucking losers.” In the video, Lawson can be heard shouting about the first amendment, and claiming to be a “legal scholar” and graduate of NYU Law School. He was subsequently forced off the train by straphangers, one of whom tossed a cup of soup on him.
A video of him behaving similarly has also resurfaced via a Twitter video from this May on the G train:
