Woman attacked for wearing a mask in coronavirus hate crime

At Chinatown subway Station a woman was allegedly attacked and was called a “diseased bitch” because she was wearing a face mask.

The police are treating the incident as a hate crime that is sparked because of coronavirus. The video released by the NYPD hate crime unit shows a violent conflict that involves the woman wearing a yellow facemask which is covering her face.

An eyewitness of the incident told that the woman was already hit on the head before she ran to confront the attacker. The attacker dropped several attacks at the women eventually pushing her into the wall.

The attacker screamed “Don’t f—ing touch me! Don’t f—ing touches me, n—er,” as the woman who was making the video tried to stop the attacker.

The woman who filmed the incident described the whole incident on her twitter account which she later removed due to privacy issues

She wrote: “I clearly heard the words ‘diseased bitch, I also heard her asking him to go away. Instead, the man suddenly got very close to the woman’s face and hit her on the head with an audible sound,” that’s when she started recording. 

She further said: “What I didn’t expect was for the victim to chase after him, with the woman seemingly holding a glass bottle before the guy started attacking her. So ultimately, both parties had a fault, but the situation escalated with racial tension.”

The eyewitness continued: “I’m not sure if the woman was Asian or not, she was wearing a face mask and glasses, so I couldn’t tell.” 

She later tweeted that the victim “had a bloody lip [and] a slight abrasion on her forehead” after the attack but did not want help. It’s incredible how much hysteria the Coronavirus news has created, please be safe out there y’all, Wearing a mask in NYC right now marks you as a target. please be careful, and stand up for your friends.” 

“The NYPD and the Hate Crime Task Force encourage the victim to report this incident to the police for a full investigation,” the force tweeted along with the video clip hoping for the victim to come forward.”

“The hope is a family member or the individual sees this and says, ‘Oh, I should report this now.’ Enough traction has been made by the public,” a spokesperson said.
