Racist woman who was severely beaten after using N-word on Metrobus is now hospitalized
A white woman was hospitalized following an altercation where she called a group of people the N-word on the X2 Metrobus.
A verbal altercation on a Metrobus took a violent turn and led to a woman being rushed to the hospital after sustaining severe injuries from a beating. During the Tuesday evening rush hour in Northeast DC, emergency crews were called to a bus stop near 2nd and H streets after a fight on an X2 Metrobus spilled onto the street.
It all started at around 6 pm when two women of different races got into an argument and the white woman was smacked on the head. According to Metro Transit Police, it is unclear what sparked the altercation. However, it was clear what ended it.
Cellphone footage from the incident shows what really happened during the altercation.

The footage that was posted on Twitter by one of the bus riders went viral online. The video begins in the middle of the argument between the two passengers. As things get heated, one white woman is struck in the head and tries to leave the bus, muttering something about "n*****-asses" as she prepares to exit. The whole bus, filled predominantly with black people, then goes "Oooh" before the clip abruptly ends.
In the next video clip, the woman is seen lying on the street with a bloody face and head as the bus pulls off. People on the X2 Metrobus can be heard yelling back at the unconscious woman.
“Call somebody else a ni****!” a woman voice taunts as the bus drives away.
The blood from the incident still stains the sidewalk where the violence transpired the day before. According to Fox 5, the woman was treated at a nearby hospital with lacerations to her face and head. However, she is expected to survive, Metro Transit Police said.
While two suspects were stopped nearby and identified, no arrests were made by law enforcement authorities. As of now, an investigation into the incident is still underway.
