A Facebook post recounting the noble efforts of strangers in a subway train who erased Nazi Swastika symbols in Manhattan, New York, has gone viral, with over 80,000 shares in just eight hours, including a retweet by the former first daughter Chelsea Clinton.

Gregory Locke, the author of the post, describes how he, along with other commuters found every advertisement on every window of the Manhattan 1-train vandalized with Nazi Swastika insignia, after he boarded the train Saturday night.

“The train was silent as everyone stared at each other, uncomfortable and unsure what to do,” he wrote in the post. “One guy got up and said, ‘Hand sanitizer gets rid of sharpie. We need alcohol,’” Locke added.

Soon enough, passengers dug in their bags and purses to arm themselves with ethyl alcohol found in their sanitizers and got to work to erase the hateful symbols and messages scribbled on subway maps and door windows. According to New York Daily News, one of the messages read "Jews belong in the oven."

"'I guess this is Trump’s America,' said one passenger. No sir, it’s not. Not tonight and not ever. Not as long as stubborn New Yorkers have anything to say about it," finished the uplifting post.

A Facebook user known as James Pincow responded to Locke’s post and claimed that he saw a similarly written graffiti — on the same train — that was celebrating Trump’s election victory.

“Finally we have a real man in the white house, a white man,” read the message, which was also signed off with a swastika.

“They’ve got to catch this animal,” James Pincow reportedly wrote.

There is no information regarding the person behind the incident. It is still not clear if the incident will be probed by the New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force whose launch was announced back in November after an "explosion" in hate crimes since Donald Trump’s victory on Election Day.

Most recently, the task force began probing another anti-Semitic hate crime incident that occurred in the subway on the C train at the West 23rd Street station in Chelsea about 8:30 p.m. on Monday. The suspect in this case, who reportedly got into an argument with a 25-year-old woman and called her a "dirty Jew" before shoving her, was described as a white man with close-cropped blond hair who was last seen wearing a dark blue jacket and carrying a black bag or briefcase. The suspect also allegedly shouted "Hail the Hitler Youth!"

The woman was not injured, according to the New York Daily News.

It is not known if there are any connections between the two incidents.
