    In the video, TikTok user @fckjoshy can be seen pouring milk and cereal onto the floor of a 4 train heading to 149 St-Grand Concourse in the Bronx, forcing the mask-clad subway riders around him to flee the area. 

    “I accidentally dropped a whole tub of cereal on the subway today. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is the worst day of my life. Not my Fruity Pebbles.’ Everyone started moving away and filming me but I was like, can someone help? Surprisingly no one offered so I had to put all the soggy cereal back in myself,” the user says in the video, which was posted two days ago. 

    The MTA on Wednesday retweeted a post featuring the video, calling it “despicable.” 

    “A new low: Pulling a prank on essential workers in the middle of a global pandemic. And making essential workers clean up your mess,” the agency wrote. 

    The TikTok user, who has 3.3 million followers, posted the video two days ago, according to the post. It wasn’t immediately clear when the incident happened.
