De Blasio says he's 'really angry' about Muslim teen's attack tale
by Rich Calder
Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday he's "really angry" at the Muslim student who cops say lied about a bias attack on a Manhattan subway — because real victims will now be met with more skepticism.
"I am really angry at this young woman for, in effect, doing a huge disservice to everyone," the mayor said, speaking of accused hoaxer Yasmin Seweid during his weekly call-in show on WNYC radio.
Seweid, 18, of North New Hyde Park in Nassau County on Long Island, admitted to cops Wednesday that she'd made up a story of being accosted on a subway on Dec. 1 by three white drunks who called her a terrorist, taunted, "Donald Trump!" and tried to pull off her headscarf.
