NOTE: I completely understand the negative press this video is receiving, however, this video has been shown on every news channel, blog, and website in the last 24 hours. I understand the woman is mentally ill and/or disturbed but does that mean we just ignore everything that happened? This was not posted to be funny, as not one funny–or snarky–comment was made about it from CSC. This is news because of how many people it affected on their commute and just so happened to be in the subway. You know the kind of content you’re going to come across on this site/page so if you don’t like it, don’t follow it. Have a great fuckin’ Friday!
NYPost: A crazed woman trying to sell crickets and worms on a D train suddenly threw them all over the crowded car, sending it into chaos during the evening commute.
The woman walked into the train car at about 6 p.m. Wednesday and made a pitch to passengers to try to get them to buy the chirping insects and wrigglers.
“It was pandemonium,” said Chris Calabrese, 29, who was on the train with his girlfriend. “It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen on a train.”
Someone then pulled the emergency brake and the train skidded to a stop on the Manhattan Bridge.
The air conditioning shut off and the screaming passengers were all stuck inside the sweltering car with the woman, who then treated them to antics for half an hour as the crickets jumped on passengers. The worms just wriggled on the floor.
“She was banging on the doors and trying to climb out the windows. Everyone had crickets on their arms. My girlfriend was crying,” said Calabrese. “Then some men were trying to hold her down and she started trying to throw up on them.”
The woman then urinated on the floor and everyone again ran to the other side of the car while still trying to avoid the piles of bugs.
The train started to move again after half an hour and pulled into the DeKalb Avenue station, where dozens of cops were waiting on the platform, said Calabrese.
The MTA confirmed that emergency services removed the woman from the train, but they declined to comment on the crickets and worms.
