NEW YORK CITY (PIX11) — “The Walking Dead” actor Chad L. Coleman was filmed going ballistic at subway passengers Friday for nearly four minutes while riding a southbound 4 train, TMZ reported.
The video starts with a man standing and yelling at the top of his lungs at no one in particular.
“I want to know,” the raspy voice bellows, “where my humanitarians are?”
The angry man then identifies himself.
“Yes, I’m Chad L. Coleman,” he confirms, still yelling, before he starts pacing up and down the aisle. “I’m on ‘The Wire’, ‘The Walking Dead.'”
“At the end of the day, where’s a humanitarian in YOU?” Coleman says, still pacing, after telling everyone in the subway car who he is again.
Coleman told TMZ that the rant stemmed from a nearby passenger referring to him as an ‘N-word’. He also said his screams for humanity were in reference to the unrest in Baltimore, insisting it caused him a lot of “built up frustration.”
“I love ‘The Wire’, man,” the person filming the outburst says.
“Thank you, brother” Coleman replies, now sitting, before engaging in a conversation about the show.
“That’s what I do,” he continues. “The stories that I tell are just trying to help people more forward, to evolve.”
The actor told TMZ he regrets the emotional outburst, but stands by his message, adding that he was sober at the time.
Coleman spent three seasons on “The Wire” before joining the cast of the “Walking Dead” as fan favorite Tyrese in 2012.
