  • The incident was reportedly not initially investigated as a hate crime but a civilian hate crime review panel has reversed that.

The incident, which was caught on video and posted on Twitter, occurred on the A Train between 34th and 42nd Streets on Oct. 5, 2021, according to ABC7 News reporter CeFaan Kim.
