Orange Is the New Black Star Lea DeLaria Says What All NYC Subway Riders Are Thinking

Orange Is the New Black star Lea DeLaria took a New York City subway preacher to task on Tuesday morning. TMZ has footage of Big Boo repeatedly asking a religious preacher to stop loudly sharing his views with unenthused morning commuters. “Get off this train! Other people believe other things, and have every right to believe other things on this planet and in this world. We do not have to be force-fed this man’s religious beliefs,” she said. “Jesus never said for you to do this! Not anywhere in the Bible!”

As he continued with his comments, DeLaria’s rebuttal grew stronger. “Don’t come at me ’cause I went to fucking Catholic school for 12 years and I know every line.” And just like when teens yell “Showtime!” on a crowded weekend train, DeLaria’s fellow passengers sat in silence. Regardless of one’s beliefs we can all agree that morning subway rides are designated quiet time and/or a chance to catch up on Kim Kardashian Hollywood.
