Evil Trump supporters viciously attack innocent Muslima… aaaaand it’s a hoax

A University of Louisiana at Lafayette student admitted Thursday to making up a story about being attacked by two men, one reportedly wearing a “Trump” hat, who yelled ethnic slurs at her and then stole her wallet and hijab head covering, according to Lafayette Police.

The woman, identified only as an 18-year-old of Middle Eastern descent, had initially told police the attack happened about 11 a.m. Wednesday on Smith Street near campus — a story quickly picked up by the national news outlets, sparking a social media firestorm.

Lafayette Police spokesman Officer Karl Ratcliff said the woman admitted to fabricating the story after police began to question her about key details.
