Watch Orange Is The New Black's Big Boo Confront a Subway Preacher

Any fan of “Orange Is The New Black” knows not to mess with Big Boo.

A New York City subway preacher learned that the hard way when actress Lea DeLaria, clad in “Bad Jew” t-shirt, confronted him about his homophobic views. A passenger on the Queens-bound M train grabbed a video of DeLaria telling the doom and gloom preacher that he and the Tea Party are “everything that’s wrong with America,” and calling him a “creepy religious fanatic.”

The anonymous tipster told Gothamist:

So next time you’re stuck on the subway and upping the volume on your iPhone, try it DeLaria’s way — a rowdy rendition of “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” is a surefire way to keep the haters at bay.
