A Muslim college student in Lafayette, LA was caught lying about being the victim of a hate crime this week. She told police that she was stripped of her hijab and robbed by Donald Trump supporters.
The 18-year-old college student told police that white men shouting racial slurs at her drove up in a truck and struck her multiple times in the back, while also stealing her hijab and wallet.
Following the accusation, Lafayette police said there were no witnesses or surveillance footage to back up the story.
After the New York Times, Times Picayune, Washington Post and Huffington Post all ran with the woman’s claims, Lafayette police said the entire story was fabricated, as Breitbart Texas reported.
“During the course of the investigation, the female complainant admitted that she fabricated the story about her physical attack as well as the removal of her hijab and wallet by two white males,” Lafayette police said in a statement. “This incident is no longer under investigation by the Lafayette Police Department.”
This revelation hasn’t stopped many on the left from sharing the student’s fabricated story. It’s still being circulated because it fits the narrative the Democrats want Americans to believe — that Trump was propelled to the White House by nothing but racism.
