In yet another bizarre and outrageous moment on the New York City subway, a passenger brought a full-size motorcycle onto a train – then played the victim when other passengers complained about it blocking the aisle.
On the crowded train car, the unidentified man became confrontational with a passenger who had apparently asked to move around him, according to footage of the incident.
‘I’m not moving. I’m not moving,’ said the entitled bike owner.
‘I’m standing right here. There’s no f***ing room,’ he added, making no mention of the fact that it was his bike which was completely blocking people behind him from accessing the aisle.
The bike was positioned so that it blocked passengers’ ability to move up and down the train car and make it to the exit doors at their stops.
‘Why don’t you tell him to tell them to move around over there,’ said the man, gesturing toward people at the other end of the car, who he felt should shuffle themselves around so that passengers could enter and exit through a door he was not blocking.
The man became defensive of the space he was taking up on a crowded train car with his large motorcycle. He told others they would have to use other doors to exit and enter the train, because he wasn’t going to move
It is not clear exactly who the man is speaking with, though he is surrounded by commuters, and one woman is visibly attempting to navigate her way around the motorbike.
Online users seemed generally in alignment that the actions of the man had behaved selfishly and inappropriately by bringing his full-size motorbike onto a subway.
‘People are rude, inconsiderate, & simply selfish now. It’s all about them,’ wrote Eric Priestley in the comments section of the video posted to Twitter.
‘Zero respect or consideration for anyone else,’ wrote someone else.
‘Entitlement is rampant these days,’ wrote a third person.
The MTA allows bicycles on the New York City subway, and recently updated its rules to include powered down e-bikes in that category.
There are size and weight limits that apply to electric bicycles that are now allowed on trains, and the rule does not apply to motorized bikes, which is what this man appeared to have.
Online commenters generally agreed that the man was being unreasonable and entitled, and should likely not have brought a large motorbike onto an NYC subway in the first place
The latest scene on the New York City subway comes days after things became violent on a different train car when an angry passenger threw elbows at a rider who had fallen asleep on him.
The wild footage shows an angry man berating another male passenger because he had fallen asleep on his shoulder.
‘You are sleeping and I am not your f****** pillow, darn it,’ the man shouted in Spanish.
He continued to lose his patience with the individual and told him he was better off switching seats so he could sit next to another rider on the bench across from theirs who had also been dozing.
‘I am not your f****** pillow. If you want to sleep, sleep by his side since you are both sleeping,’ he said while pointing to the man across from them.

The man kept warning the passenger next to him that he was not his ‘f****** pillow.’
‘Do you understand? Do you understand? I am not your f****** pillow,’ he shouted.
The sleepy passenger made a comment about the irate man’s mother, angering him enough that he elbowed the passenger in the face three times – while other customers sitting around them swiftly got up and ran down the subway car.
‘Now what are you going to do?’ the attacker said while staring him down for a second before the man on the bench across who had previously been yelled at stood up and punched him in the face.
The men exchanged punches and grabbed each other for nearly 30 seconds, stopping only once the train pulled in at a station.
An NYPD spokesperson told DailyMail.com that they ‘are aware of the video and are looking into the circumstances of the incident.’
