A gang of men in Washington DC was caught on camera tossing a young Black woman into a dumpster sparking outrage on social media. The men live-streamed their attack and Twitter is in an uproar.
In the video, which you can see below, a group of men outside the Paradise Apartments in Washington DC throw a woman into a dumpster filled with garbage and debris. The woman appears shocked and immediately starts crying.
Warning – Trigger:
The video has been shared more than 1 million times across social media platforms, and has caused a general outrage by anyone the watched it. There have been calls for the men involved to all be arrested.
But there’s more to the story.
MTO News located another, longer version of the video, which may give some context as to why the group of men would engage in such a heinous attack:
In the video, a 14-year-old boy claims that the woman accosted him sexually, and tried to kiss him and “touch him.” The teenage boy claims that he asked the woman to stop, and she wouldn’t – so he called his friends over and they “trashed” the woman.
Here’s the boy explaining his side of things.
MTO News reached out to the Washington DC police for comment. At the time of publication, they were unwilling to comment on the matter.
