HATER: Actress Under Fire For Slamming All NYC Hasidic Jews After Alleged Near-Car Crash

A actress living in NYC took to Twitter and chose to slander all Hasidic Jews living in Williamsburg.

The woman, Amber Tamblyn, claims she was pushing her baby in a stroller while crossing the intersection of Washington Ave and Atlantic Ave, when a Hasidic man tried hitting her stroller.

She tweeted the following:

“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 a (sic) she crossed a crosswalk, honking and touching the stroller with the car’s bumper, please DM me,” she wrote. “That woman was me.”

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.

That is perfectly understandable, to try and find an individual responsible for the alleged incident. But then, she tweeted again a few hours later and decided to attack all Hasidic Jews in NYC. She wrote the following:

“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.”

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.

Most interestingly is the fact that as of Monday morning at 11:00AM, she still had not made a police report – yet claimed that an individual tried to harm her.

Social media users criticized Tamblyn’s tweets that appeared to target members of the religious Jewish sect. Some of her followers said she was making generalizations about a large community of orthodox Jews.

“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,” one person tweeted.

“Let’s be rational here, Amber Tamblyn. Firstly, I am so glad you and baby are ok! But to target the Hasidic community like that – especially given the real antisemitism out there – is generally irresponsible,” a social media user tweeted.

“You can’t be both ‘woke and a bigot. Choose one,” another person tweeted.

“Well, I am a proud Hasidic Jew. I never hit you with my car. I never attacked you. Why are you attacking me?!” a person tweeted.

Tamblyn, 34, a prominent advocate of the Time’s Up movement, did not appear to call the police following the incident, TMZ reported. She has not immediately commented on the backlash.
