7 Fake Hate Crimes That The Media Blamed On Trump

Once Donald Trump won the presidential election last week, it seemed as if everyone had a story about how Trump supporters had abused them. Turns out most of those stories have turned out to be exaggerations, not related to Trump, or just plain lies. Here are 7 of the most egregious fake stories:
A student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette falsified a story that she was attacked for wearing a hijab. Police later determined she had fabricated the story. Elon University students woke up to a "hateful note" that said "Bye Bye Latinos". It was actually written as satire by a Latino student, but not before the university overreacted. A California community was outraged over a student who was passing out "deportation notices." Of course, it was just a poorly timed joke, not a hate crime. Brutally beaten by Trump supporters because he's gay? Or a filmmaker who just happens to specialize in special effects and makeup? Mic reporter Sarah Harvard went on Twitter to share a personal anecdote that had allegedly happened to her friend's sister. Turns out police couldn't find any evidence of the incident.  A University of Minnesota student claimed she was "stopped in my [tracks] by a white male, who yelled at me to 'Go back to Asia.' 

...I pretended to not hear anything and continue[d] on walking since I didn't want to create conflict," Tu, who noted she is Asian-American, wrote in the post on her personal Facebook page. 

"Shortly after that moment, I was stopped by that same man who told me 'Don't you know it's disrespectful to walk away from someone when they are talking to you?" University of Minnesota Police reported there were no records of the incident and that they weren't involved. The student has since deleted her Facebook page and appears to be fabricated. An African-American woman claimed "four males, all Caucasian" harassed and threatened her with racial slurs. 

She claimed that they had all been caught, but there's just one problem. Local police claim there are zero reports of this incident ever occurring.
