A large group of teenagers reportedly severely beat a New York City art gallery owner because they were suffering from TDS and got triggered by his “Make America Great Again” hat, according to Fox 5 News.
42-year-old Jahangir Turan told the station he had just purchased the hat from Trump Tower hours before the incident took place Tuesday.
“I was walking on Canal, it was some sort of event and I got jumped for wearing this hat,” Turan said. “They start cursing at me. Basically one kid took my head and bashed it against the scaffolding poll.”
“It all happened within 10 seconds,” he continued. “I jumped out, crossed the street and I called the cops.”
The group of teens reportedly yelled “f**k Trump” as they stomped on Turan. His left eye is badly swollen and he tells the outlet he has a fractured cheekbone. The art gallery owner is now waiting to learn if he will suffer permanent damage to his eyesight.
Turan’s support for Trump still remains but he says he will be more aware of his surroundings before promoting the president in the same way.
"I love President Trump. I think he's doing a great job," Turan said. "It's sad to get beat up for wearing this hat. This is America.”
The 42-year-old is just one of many who have been attacked over wearing a MAGA hat. The left continues to claim that those on the right are inciting violence, but as news stories continue to pile up, it is clear the facts are not on their side.
The police have not yet issued a statement on the incident.
