If anyone in Brooklyn near the intersection of Washington Ave and Atlantic Ave just saw a Hasidic man in a grey van try to hit a woman and her baby in a stroller as she crossed a crosswalk, honking and touching the stroller with the car’s bumper, please DM me. That woman was me.— Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) March 4, 2018
Thank you everyone for your kind words of support today. We are fine. But this is not the first time a man from the Hasidic community in NYC has attempted to harm me or other women I know. Any woman riding a bike through South Williamsburg can attest. I hope this guy is caught.— Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) March 5, 2018
Amber Tamblyn claims a “Hasidic man” almost ran her over in Brooklyn on Sunday while she was pushing her baby in a stroller.
People are blasting her on Twitter after she chastised men within the Jewish faith and accused them of targeting women.
So the mythology you are promoting now is that men from a Hasidic community harm women. Wow, Jew-haters run amok on Twitter.— Webtress (@Webtress) March 5, 2018
I don’t understand your tweets. For someone who is so politically woke, I don’t understand your generalizations of the Hasidic Jewish community. It sounds racist.— Katherine Greene (@greeneneefe) March 5, 2018
I'm just curious how many people are now going to assume that every Hasidic man walking or driving down the street is the one who attempted to harm you? You don't feel remotely concerned about profiling? The replies to your tweet are quite telling.— Jana (@YochanaMiriam) March 5, 2018
Wow, thanks for vilifying an entire religious group. Imagine if you replaced the word Hassidic with Muslim or Hindu.— Szl (@SZL2) March 5, 2018
