A video of a guy named Griffin Kinard striking a lady in the face on a New York City subway car has gone viral on TikTok and Instagram. More than 2.5 million people have seen the video since its initial upload by user Mayy Russell on October 28. After that, it was shared on Instagram, quickly becoming popular. Russell told the New York Post that the attack happened on Monday, October 25, in the vicinity of 145th Street in Harlem. However, the specific address of the crime scene is unclear. The guy says it to my face immediately at the beginning of the scary footage. Directly ask me to take a chill pill! Calm down, if you will.
What exactly took place in the video?
When she told the angry passenger, “Chill Pill,” he hit her in front of everyone. It was reported that several bystanders raised their voices in outrage at the attack. Russell, the cameraman, can be overheard stating, “You wilin’, she a female!” mind your own business, I’m trying to deal with my kids. The guy is heard threatening the lady. The video didn’t show how or why the fight started, but Russell said the guy was already on edge before getting on the train. New York City police are presently looking into the incident.
The internet reacts to the subway attack
The attack committed against the female rider on the New York City subway was criticized by several spectators. Many people were so angry that they called for the NYPD to arrest him immediately. At the same time, several tweets argued that the lady shouldn’t have provoked the guy.
Who is Griffin Kinard?
According to the International Business Times, Griffin Kinard’s supposed brother positively recognized him in a video uploaded on TikToker Tizzyent’s account. His brother allegedly said, “Unfortunately, this man is my brother; his name is Griffin Kinard.” We, as a family, do not approve of such behaviour. It would seem that Griffin Kinard is a writer who resides in the Bronx in New York City. Kinnard’s exact age is unclear. However, he is likely in his late 40s or early 50s. His Twitter profile states that he entered the world on July 3, consistent with his actual birthday.
Griffin Kinard’s LinkedIn page suggests that his actions on the metro were not typical of him. Griffin says he’s going to school to improve himself and the world. Furthermore, he said that he spent the previous eleven years working for Youth Communications, from 2002 to 2013, where he purportedly fought for the rights of youth in the foster care system.
Griffin Kinard had also said that he educated mentally ill drug users when he was affiliated with Mary McLeod Bethune High School in Georgia between 1999 and 2002. This was during the period in which the institution was located. His profile does not, however, indicate what capacity he serves in his organization. One of his images from six years ago suggests that he also volunteered with the Spanish non-profit Bancosol Alimentos.
