Hang on … did we just jump from “was attacked by a Trump supporter” to “confronted a Trump supporter”? Hang on tight:

After trying to take a Trump supporter’s sign? The Root didn’t mention that at all. Just Jared reports:
Indya Moore was attacked by a Trump supporter last week after she tried to take a sign away from the man.
The 24-year-old actress was reportedly outside of the studio for her show Pose and she encountered the Trump supporter holding a re-elect sign for the president.
“Well, you guys aren’t fans of our show, and we don’t want you to be fans of our show,” Indya says while trying to take the sign away. A man then tries to rip the sign back out of Indya‘s hands and they get into an altercation. The man is seen forcibly shoving Indya multiple times before police intervene.
Indya took to Twitter to thank fans for their support after the incident. She wrote, “Thank you for loving my community, fighting for us, supporting us fight for ourselves and others who are experiencing an increase of oppression and violence under this current administration.”
So in other words, she confronted a Trump supporter and tried to rip his sign out of his hands; but she was justified, because ORANGE MAN BAD.
Thank you for loving my community, fighting for us, supporting us fight for ourselves and others who are experiencing an increase of oppression and violence under this current administration.

NARRATOR: The incident described in the article suggests that Indya Moore was the attacker, not the one attacked.

Accurate headline: “An actress you’ve never heard of, from a bullshit show you’ve never watched, took property out of another adult’s hands and proceeded to stomp on it while recording video to score internet woke points…then decides she is the victim.”

Did you watch the video? She tried to steal his property and attacked him. Pretty despicable.

Uhm, the story states SHE verbally engaged and then physically tried to take his property. Therefore SHE attacked him. You assault someone and try to steal their property you make get your ass beat.

She started the whole thing. People should be able to protest peacefully without some idiot attacking them and ripping up their property. That goes for both sides.

OK, now that that’s straightened out, here’s some more quality content from Moore’s twitter feed that shows the lengths she and her allies will go to in order to fight for trans rights, but we’re gonna make you scroll down a bit, ’cause it’s kind of gross and not all the helpful to the trans community, we’d wager:
Here you go:
You will not erase us You will not censor us. And we will interupt any message and any system that oppresses us and celebrates our oppressors. Our lives matter Trans and queer lives matter and we will interupt space to make that clear. pic.twitter.com/OO8Zfb5AjG

The one dude with the camera looks like he’s having quite the revelation about trans awareness.
