Only in New York City — A cell phone video that went viral on Wednesday shows a wheelchair-bound woman smoking a blunt on the New York City M train in New York City and arguing with a young straphanger, just before she was thrown off the subway.

“Get the f–k off my train!” the angry passenger yells, just before the video cuts to a shot of the woman on the ground of an unidentified subway station, her belongings scattered everywhere, The New York Post reported.

The video has been watched over 800,000 times since it was first posted on Tuesday.

It had gained more than 700,000 views on the Instagram of World Star Hip Hop as of 10 p.m. Wednesday.

The footage, which originally posted by a user named _liamweatherup_ — consists of several clips, edited together as one. It starts with a close-up of the woman in the wheelchair as she rolls up a cigar on an empty M train bench.

Transit officials later told The New York Post that they received a report on Tuesday at approximately 3:30 p.m from an MTA worker who was on the train which said that a female passenger in a wheelchair was smoking weed and was possibly armed.

However, the contents were obviously a mystery to the male passenger.

“That s–t goofy,” he said, causing a tirade from the woman.

“If you smoke marijuana, why you don’t know what it is?” she asked.

After the woman had begun to yell incomprehensibly, the man started to make several threats towards her — even going so far to say that he was going to punch her if she didn’t get off the train.

“I’ll smack you, that hat, and that blunt,” he said. “Everybody on this train, I’m decking that b—h…Word, gangsta.”

As the drama ensues on camera, an MTA worker is seen in the background holding a radio, but it’s not clear if he is the one who reported the altercation.

It is also not entirely clear whether the man who was arguing with the woman was the same person who threw her off of the train.

Although smoking on the subway is forbidden in New York, people on social media appeared to be angrier at the fact that the man was so disrespectful to a woman who was a wheelchair bound.

“F–k that ass b—h n—a. Let her do her. She ain’t putting that s–t to his big ass lips,” one Instagram user said.

“Disrespectful ignorant p.o.s. And I am not talking about the handicapped lady medicating,” another user wrote. “I would have knocked that man out. That video shows what is wrong with society. Young people are disrespectful and ignorant.”
