In a shocking turn of events, the victim of an anti-Muslim hate crime was recently arrested in New York City. She was arrested because she made the whole thing up.
A Muslim woman who drummed up mainstream media hysteria claiming she was attacked on a New York City subway by President-Elect Donald Trump supporters is now under arrest for fabricating the hate crime and filing a false police report.
Yasmin Seweid, 18, has been charged by the New York City Police Department (NYPD) for filing a fraudulent police report after she claimed Trump supporters called her a terrorist and attempted to pull her hijab off her head, the New York Daily News reported.
A source with the New York Daily News said Seweid stood by her story until NYPD continued to press her on the matter after finding no evidence that the attack occurred. Seweid admitted that she had fabricated the story, claiming she had family problems.
“This isn’t something we normally like to do but she had numerous opportunities to admit nothing happened and she kept sticking by her story,” the source told the New York Daily News on charged Seweid for filing a fake police report.
It's not shocking that many of these reported “hate crimes” have turned out to be hoaxes. The left obviously want to smear Trump and his supporters. Since Trump voters haven't given them any ammunition, the media began to simply make it up.
