NEW YORK (1010 WINS) --  A video shared on social media on Tuesday shows a racist verbal attack made against an Asian woman on the subway in Manhattan. 

The video posted to Twitter shows a man using the term "kung flu," referencing the coronavirus.

"Asian Americans continue to face these racial attacks 6 months in since the pandemic began. I was verbally abused by this man. Please bring the awareness to go against racial discrimination and remember, silence is violence."

The man in the video can be heard shouting, "You have the right to record me too, you f***ing b***h."

The New York City Transit Authority responded to the tweet saying it takes "reports like this very seriously." "There’s absolutely no room for racism on the subway," they added.

A second video added shows the same man get into an argument with other riders and saying he would hurt them.

"I took this video last night riding A train from 59th Columbus circle to go home around 5:30pm." the second video was captioned."The guy in the video went completely out of control and threat to hurt another passenger before he turned to me."
