Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad forced to take off hijab at #SXSW




Muslim U.S. Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad was forced to take off her hijab at SXSW.

She was asked to take off her hijab in order to receive an ID badge.

The ID badge that she was given was the wrong ID, belonging to Tamir Muhammad from Time Warner.

The person who asked her to remove her hijab has since been removed and SXSW apologized to Ibtihaj.
