Remember the Muslim teenager who claimed she was called a terrorist and attacked by Donald Trump supporters on a New York subway train? Remember her Facebook post and how she laid out her heartbreaking story to the world? Well, yeah apparently she lied about the whole story.
So, who else saw this coming?
Yasmin Seweid, 18, was arrested by police on Wednesday for filing a false report with the police and confessing that she lied about the ‘Trump supporters’ attack. Seweid, who has been attending New York’s Baruch College, at first told police she was harassed by three men when she got on a train at the 23rd Street station in Manhattan on December 1st.
She claimed that the three men that taunted her were all drunk and all white, telling her ‘you don’t belong here’ and calling her hijab a ‘rag.’

Seweid also claimed that one of the men snatched her bag, snapping the strap and another tried to pull off her hijab before she fled the train at Grand Central Station and attempted to flag down police. She posted about her ‘traumatizing’ ordeal on Facebook, giving the world her sob FAKE story that went viral.
‘No matter how ‘cultured’ or ‘Americanized’ I am, these people don’t see me as an American, it breaks my heart that so many individuals chose to be bystanders while watching me get harassed verbally and physically by these disgusting pigs.’
Police in the beginning investigated the case as an anti-Muslim bias incident and spent momentous resources trying to track down those responsible.
Authorities checked on the surveillance footage but could not find any evidence to confirm Seweid’s story. Seweid finally broke down and admitted to police on Tuesday that she had invented the story, saying she wanted to get attention because she was having family issues at home.
So, now this young liar can continue to increase her ‘family issues’ (I doubt that’s the truth either), while at the same time being charged with filing a false report and obstructing governmental administration.
