17-year-old Lamyaa from Pennsylvania was recently engaged in a group chat with friends. When everybody started discussing Donald Trump, Lamyaa, who is an Arab Muslim Woman, contributed to the discussion with her own strong views about the president. Realizing that she was a Muslim, a mutual friend in the group chat, whom she didn’t know, responded to her comments in the only way that idiots know how.
“Stop defending Islam Bitch shut up you couldn’t take that scarf off or your dad would beat your ass,” they wrote, prompting the best response ever from Lamyaa. Because instead of letting the insult slide, or responding to the stranger in a similarly brainless manner, she decided to ask her dad, who lives in Saudi Arabia, if it was ok for her to remove her hijab. What did he say? See for yourself below. She shared his answer on Twitter and it’s since gone viral with over 320k likes 147k shares.
