'Orange is the New Black' star Lea DeLaria yells back at a subway preacher

Orange is the New Black‘s Big Boo—known in the real world as comedian Lea DeLaria—did something we all want to do but usually don’t: She yelled at someone annoying her on the subway, according to a video submitted to Gothamist.

The offender in this case was a man preaching to the crowded subway car about religion. “Religious fanatics are the reasons America’s in trouble, sir,” DeLaria yelled as he continued to speak about Sodom and Gomorrah. “I’m going to keep talking as long as you talk.”

There’s also a video of DeLaria leading a rendition of “99 Bottles of Beer,” though it’s unclear if that happened pre- or post-preacher. Either way, watching is a good way to tide yourself over until the next season of Orange.
