Subway Slap Melts Down Into Violent Brawl in New York City

By    |   Thursday, 13 November 2014 06:57 AM EST



A slap on a New York City subway train that led to a vicious brawl between a man and a woman went viral on YouTube and then gained for national attention when the violence was debated on "The View" on Wednesday.

According to The New York Post, four people were arrested in the brawl that happened before 5 a.m. on a train between subway stations. The incident was recorded on a cellphone and the video posted on YouTube titled "Man smacks the soul out of girl on the NY Subway" (warning: extreme urban language) has received more than 4.8 million views since being posted on Saturday.

According to the Post, Danay Howard, 21, began taunting Jorge Pena, 25, because of the older styled jacket he was wearing, while her friends laughed and egged her own.

"You got a whack – 8-ball jacket that came out in 1990," Howard can be heard yelling on the video. "Get your money game up."

Howard along with two of her friend then went after a man shooting the incident on his cellphone, knocking the phone out of his hand, before going back and taunting Pena.

The video show Pena slapping Howard across the face, knocking her to the ground and setting off a brawl.

On "The View," Whoopi Goldberg sided with Pena, saying Howard was the instigator and that Pena was defending himself, according to the Huffington Post.

"If you slap anybody – but particularly women – if you slap, put your hands on somebody, you cannot be guaranteed that he’s not going to slap the (expletive) out of you," Goldberg said.

Goldberg's co-host Rosie Perez and guest host, singer Ashanti, agreed with Goldberg's assessment of the brawl.

"I felt a little hypocritical when I saw this," Perez said. "I was like, 'Okay, she needed to get slapped back.'"

Ashanti added, "She definitely needed to get slapped."
