The subway bigot who had soup dumped on him for a racist rant on an L train insisted Tuesday he’s “not that sorry,” according to a report.
Paul Lawson claimed he was “making a point” when he started shouting the slurs and said he went to NYU Law School on an L train Saturday, Gothamist reported.
Lawson, was caught on cellphone video using the N-word while clutching a lime-a-rita.
“I talk sh– because I know I can! I’m a lawyer! I went to NYU Law! F— you!” he says, before yelling out, “Who cares?”
But NYU Law School has no record of Lawson ever attending, a spokeswoman for the school said. By midday Tuesday, he scrubbed that tidbit from his Facebook bio.
Lawson, 29, is shown hopping and dancing and singing the N-word on Saturday, according to the video first posted by Joshua Pyne and obtained by the Daily News.
A group of straphangers surrounded him and pushed him from the train. As he tried to get back on, a woman lobbed a container of thick, orange Au Bon Pain soup at him.
“Yeah, get your hate speech out of here, F— you!” she yelled.
In a series of Facebook posts on Tuesday that have since been deleted, Lawson said, “For all those of you who saw that unfortunate video, I’m getting help and really don’t know how it came up in the first place.”
He went on to say he was assaulted on Sunday. “If it makes you feel any better I had my head broken open the next day, so there’s that,” Gothamist reported.
Earlier, in a series of rash posts, Lawson insisted he was in the right.
“I feel bad that I used that word, but I was making a point,” he wrote. “Lots of comedians do that. It’s the first f—ing amendment and look at the liberal mob beating up the peaceful protester now f—ing losers.”
In reply, a concerned friend of his wrote, “I don’t know what has happened in the last few years. But I have seen you get into many fights and BS encounters over nothing.
“You need to get some help and talk to someone. Stop drinking like today.”
Lawson also said he “was a race-baiter in this context, not a racist,” and added, he “enjoys getting a rise out of people.”
Lawson could not be reached for comment.
