|Claim via Social Media: NYPD Let Proud Boys On Subway For Free After Drag Protest.
Newsweek rating: Mostly True (Needs Context: While it does seem that members of a group wearing Proud Boys insignia were let through the New York subway system by police without having to pay, the NYPD said the decision was made to prevent violence during a protest and counterprotest at a library on December 29, 2022.)
