KOMO News reports that Lakeysha Beard says she felt "disrespected" by the incident, though passengers said it was Beard who was being rude by refusing to stop yapping while sitting in one of the train's designated quiet cars.

Can you imagine having to listen to some loud mouth yenta blabbering on the cell phone for 16 hrs. Someone offer me a gun to put to my head...I’ll thank them for it.

Oh, My!

This creates such a graphic image in my brain I could be thoroughly chastized by the PC police for having such thoughts.

But, it sure rings true to form.

Seriously?

People who think it's OK for someone to yap incessantly on a cell-phone for 16 hours in a designated quiet car?

I hope they'll come on here to explain and debate.

Lay-key-sha should wear more flattering colors, like orange. White makes her look ever so slightly overweight. :)

Blacks are NOT inferior, but it is RACIST to hold them to the same standards as everyone else.

Well, what better place to gab for 16 hours without interruption than in a quiet car. There's too much noise in those other cars, doncha know...

This is UNACCEPTABLE.

Sure, they booted her off, but they stopped the train first.

Why did they stop the train first?
