[rt] A violent mob of over 30 people brutalized a black transgender woman as she attempted to seek shelter in a Minneapolis convenience store after getting in a car accident. The attack has further fractured the community.
Iyanna Dior was swarmed by more than 30 people on Monday night in a violent attack captured on video. The assault reportedly stemmed from a car accident and has escalated tensions in the community, with LGBTQ advocates and many others denouncing the apparent hypocrisy of a crowd of black men and women attacking one of their own even as the city is gripped by protests against racism and police brutality.
Dior is seen taking refuge behind the counter in the store and briefly taunting her assailants, who hurl abuse back, reminding her “you gotta come out!” After surrounding her inside the shop, they continue the onslaught, demanding she “get [her] f****t ass out the store!”
