And how dare you actually INVESTIGATE a hate-crime report!"
The sister of Yasmin Seweid, the 18-year-old Muslim woman who lied about
being harassed by a group of Donald Trump supporters on the New York
City subway earlier this month, is blaming the media and the New York
City police department for investigating the story.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
The story went viral, with news outlets reporting her allegations without questioning whether she may have been lying. Seweid also gave interviews to local news stations.
Seweid admitted on Wednesday that she made up the story so that she would not get in trouble for missing her curfew. She was arrested and charged with filing a false police report.
While Sara Seweid wrote on Facebook that she “is not excusing what my sister did,” she went on a lengthy diatribe in which she did just that. Seweid blamed the media for covering the story and blamed NYPD for investigating the hate crime claim.
“The NYPD should have never been involved in the first place even if the incident did happen,” wrote Seweid, who has a “Deport Trump” bumper sticker posted on her Facebook account.
And if they hadn't, you'd be screaming that they didn't care how Muslims are treated, don't care about Womyn of Colour, etc. You sorry twit.
“I know this isn’t the first time something like this happens so I
really think people who are so concerned about how Muslims will be
perceived in the media or how future hate crimes will be dealt with need
to take a step back and think why muslim [women of color] have felt the
need to do this. Its [sic] not for attention.”
Bullshit, that's EXACTLY what it's for. Some hate-crime fakers try to excuse themselves with "I was trying to Raise Awareness of (fill in current SJB whining point)!", but it still all boils down to "Pay attention to me!"
