Orange is the New Black actress shouts down homophobic preacher

Orange is the New Black actress Lea DeLaria (known to fans as 'Big Boo') was filmed shouting down a religious preacher on New York's subway - all while wearing a T-shirt saying Bad Jew.

In footage obtained by TMZ, she told the preacher: "Jesus never sent for you to do this never, not anywhere in the Bible. Show me anywhere in the Bible where Jesus says it is OK for you to do this... Don't come at me because I went to f*ing Catholic school for 12 years and I know every lie."

The preacher ranted against "the sin of homosexuality" to the actress, who is openly gay.

She told him: "As long as you keep talking, I'll keep talking. You do not have the right."
