Memphis African-American Trumaine Foster, inspired by Jussie Smollett MAGA hoax, spray painted his car with racist slurs to frame Trump supporters.
Before turning into another Jussie Smollett MAGA Hoax, here’s how the original story was reported by local media outlet WREG:
SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — An African-American Southaven couple said they woke up Tuesday morning to find racist graffiti had been spray-painted on two of their vehicles.
The couple’s pickup truck has two N****** spray-painted on it. A car was painted with the phrase ‘Leave N******’ and ‘Trump.’
“This had to be unnerving for a quiet family to come out to their cars and see what they saw there,” neighbor Pastor Vincent McCaskill said.
The couple didn’t want to speak with WREG about what happened and neither did most of their neighbors, but McCaskill said he couldn’t stay silent.
“It’s time for us as believers to truly speak up and speak out against it,” he said. “We cannot remain silent against this.”
Police are saying very little about their investigation, but McCaskill said whoever is behind the hateful messages failed to cause the offense they likely intended.
“I know who I am, and so, trust me, the words on those cars is not who I am, so I am in no way offended or moved by it,” he said. “We know our neighbors, we talk to our neighbors, a very diverse community, you know, so I don’t think this is an indictment of the community.”
The Media Once Again Earning Their “Fake News” Moniker.
Amazingly, WREG never updated their original story, or place any information to show that their original story was based on a hoax. But they’re still allowing readers to share it?
WREG instead of updating their original story, or deleting it altogether.
They created a completely different story that reported Trumaine Foster being arrested for, hysterically, “Insurance Fraud”.
Southaven officers were called to Marcia Louise Drive on Feb. 4 after a man named Trumaine Foster said he woke up to find his vehicles had been spray painted.
His pickup truck has two N****** spray-painted on it. A car was painted with the phrase ‘Leave N******’ and ‘Trump.’
Foster was taken into custody Friday and charged with insurance fraud and tampering with evidence, but Southaven police stopped short of explicitly saying Foster was responsible for the graffiti.
“That it was a hoax just kind of made us look silly,” Foster’s neighbor Shelby Littleton said.
“To make something up, that just does not make sense to me,” Bradley Littleton said.
Shockingly, NOT shockingly, Pastor Vincent McCaskill is nowhere to be found.
Pastor Vincent McCaskill who in the original story cried:
“It’s time for us as believers to truly speak up and speak out against it. We cannot remain silent against this.”
