Lea DeLaria Shuts Down Subway Preacher

You don't want to mess with Lea DeLaria.

The outspoken lesbian actress who has received critical acclaim for her role on "Orange Is The New Black" was caught on camera this week telling off a subway preacher while riding the subway in New York City. The actress was not happy about being forced to hear his rhetoric and refused to let the evangelist continue. TMZ obtained a tape of the incident.

"You have no right! Go to another train," DeLaria tells the preacher. "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!"

But the best part might have been when she informed him, "Don't come at me because I went to f**king Catholic school for 12 years and I know every line."

WERK.

Check out the video above to see the full encounter.
