On Orange Is the New Black, her character Big Boo stands up for what she believes in — and the same can be said about Lea DeLaria in real life!
A new video has surfaced of the openly-gay comedienne riding the subway in NYC and totally shutting down a preacher who is quoting religious text to allegedly spread hate.
“You have no right! Go to another train,” the 56-year-old can be heard saying.
“Get off this train. Other people believe other things and have every right to believe other things on this planet and in this world. We do not have to be force-fed this man’s religious beliefs. Jesus never said for you to do this — ever!”
The best line of the whole altercation comes when she challenges the preacher to prove her wrong, telling him, “Don’t come at me because I went to f--king Catholic school for 12 years and I know every line!”
