Litchfield Penitentiary's resident double-crosser's better known for trying to seduce bible thumpers than out-preach them, but it looks like IRL Big Boo's got other ideas—this morning, Orange Is The New Black star Lea DeLaria had some choice words for a dreaded hate-spewing subway preacher on the M train, railing at him for sermonizing against liberals and homosexuals and informing him that he and the Tea Party are "everything that's wrong with America."
A tipster who wishes to remain anonymous sent us the following videos, taken on a Queens-bound M train at around 9 a.m. this morning. After engaging her fellow straphangers in a rousing rendition "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall" DeLaria, clad in a t-shirt emblazoned with "Bad Jew," gets right up into the irritating preacher's face, calling him a "creepy religious fanatic," accusing him of lobbing a homosexual slur at her and repeatedly begging him to cease his proselytizing:
The tipster tells us:
I walked onto the F train at W4 station and they were already yelling. And when I got off two stops later at 23rd street, they were still going. A lot of people were standing around taking videos and photos and watching. I think people weren't sure whether it was real or staged. But a friend later confirmed that she has seen this same man preaching similar things on the subway before, so I'm pretty sure it was real.
DeLaria also earned some congratulatory words on Twitter:
@CelynaRobin my pleasure you're correct. He had no right.

Do note that the rule-of-thumb when it comes to subway confrontations is to avoid them at all cost. Then again, Boo's not the first hero to shoot down a subway preacher, and she certainly knows how to handle herself:
