The victim, Jill LeCroix, a 57-year-old grandmother of five, described the mob-style beatdown in an interview with the New York Post earlier this month. In the attack, the Queens woman said, she was targeted for being white. “The one with the green hair, she was saying she hates white people, the way they talk, hates white skin, the way their skin cracks. Saying she was gangsta,” LeCroix, a bartender, told the Post. She said the girls began to attack her after questioning if she was a Donald Trump supporter. “Before they hit me, the girl with the green hair said, ‘You probably like Trump! Don’t you?’” said the grandmother of five. “I said, ‘I love him.’ I didn’t see which one hit me first.” LeCroix said one of the girls, again the one with the green hair, pointed to a Queens cemetery during the bus ride, telling LeCroix that she would bury her there. LeCroix later received three staples on her head to treat her injuries. She said her attackers struck her with an unknown object. “I didn’t even know” how bad the wound was, she told the Post. “They sat me down on the bus, and one of the passengers said, ‘Uh-oh, you’re bleeding pretty bad.'” While she might not have known what weapon the girls used to strike her, LeCroix had some solid clues to their motivation. “Never in my life have I been attacked like that,” LeCroix told the Post. “They said they hate white people.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
