Fake hate speech again
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was charged with filing a false report after she told police three men called her a terrorist and chanted "Donald Trump". She addressed the alleged harassment in a Facebook post and spoke with media outlets about the ordeal
The Baruch College Student also went missing after the alleged harassment, but was found over the weekend.
Now police sources have told NBC 4 New York that Seweid allegedly admitted to them she had been out drinking with friends, and made up the attack to distract her angry father.
She was arraigned at Manhattan Criminal Court and released Thursday morning.
The Baruch College student originally said she told police she was approached by three men and told to "get out of this country," was called a terrorist aboard the train and told to "get the f****** hijab off your head!" She also alleged that one of the men grabbed her bag and broke the strap.
She called the incident "traumatizing" and spoke with multiple news organizations about it.
