Yasmin Seweid, a Muslim college student, claimed that Trump supporters had tried to tear off her hijab on the New York City subway and shouted, "Look it's a f______ terrorist" and "Go back to your country".
"The president-elect just promotes this stuff and is very anti-Muslim, very Islamophobic, and he's just condoning it," she complained.
It was all a lie.
Yasmin was charged with filing a false police report on December 2016. On September 2017, she pleaded guilty to falsely reporting an incident and disorderly conduct.
An Islamophobia hoax doesn't get any more discredited than the Seweid case. But Islamophobia hoaxes never die. They're rolled into hate crime statistics and reports even when they are completely false.
