A video of an Indian-origin woman from New York being the target of racist slurs on her way to work has gone viral on social media.

She posted a video on her Facebook page that shows an African American man hurling racial slurs at her and another Asian woman on a train.

In her Facebook post she writes, "So this is something that happened while I was on my way from work today!!  This man was on the same PATH train as me along with 100 other passengers, I had my headphones on and was like any other day. Next thing I know he is yelling on my face (Did not bother to listen/ react). Knowing its pointless I step away, next target alongside an asian lady! From Christoher St- till Newport the things this man said, from "asian piece of shit to...."

The video that was originally uploaded by the Indian-origin woman has now been taken down. Her facebook account has also been deactivated.
