Video: Racial Slur Sparks Fight On Red Line Train

A Twitter user posted several videos Tuesday of an altercation on a southbound Red Line train that resulted in a man being physically kicked off the train at the Sox/35th station. The user said that the incident was sparked by a racial slur.

The user captioned the video above with: “After being called “n—-” over and over this old man had enough and beat the s— out of this drunk racist dude.” Others say the victim of the beating repeatedly taunted the black man, who did not acknowledge the slur at first.

The same Twitter user posted this video Tuesday, too, as an epilogue:

According to Chicago police, no report has been filed about this fight. Though both videos here were posted yesterday, it's unclear when the actual fight occurred.
