Jahangir Turan claims he was “jumped” by a group of around 15 teenagers who yelled at him and began to hit him as a result of the red MAGA hat that he wore. “They yelled ‘f— Trump!’ and then they smashed my head into a scaffolding pole,” said Turan of the incident. “It all happened within 10 seconds,” he continued. Turan suffered from severe bruises and a swollen eye.
The MAGA hat that Turan wore was purchased by the complainant earlier in the day when Turan visited the Trump Tower and purchased the hat. “I bought the hat because I think Trump is doing a great job,” said Turan. According to police record, Turan declined medical attention. There was no comment or statements of the incident reported by the police department. Additionally, there was no comment of any suspects or witnesses. “It’s sad to get beat up for wearing this hat,” Turan stated. “This is America,” he finished.
