A male-to-female trans was badly beaten by a mob of at least 30 men in a convenience store parking lot in Minnesota this week.
Minnesota is ground zero for violent protests in response to the death of an unarmed Black man at the hands of a white police officer.
Cell phone video shows the Hispanic MtF trans being punched and stomped by a mob of Black males.
The tweet’s author seemed to blame Black men in general and Black “cishet” females for the mob violence.
“Black men I don’t have it in me to write a long post cishet Black women I don’t have it In me to reprimand you all either. DO BETTER.”
After many on social media questioned what preceded the beat down, someone wrote:
“Real Story of [Iyanna] Dior She jump into another persons car. Than she drove 50mph in a parking lot with kids.She than crash into 4-5 different cars. She was also not sober she was intoxicated. She than got out the car and ran to the corner store call sam diary #BlackLivesMatter.”
The bloodied and bruised Dior fled inside the convenience store where the owner provided shelter behind the counter.
But Dior began to swear at the mob which only elevated tensions again.
Twitter users expressed outrage at the savage beating, as many asked for contact details to help Dior.
Conservative Twitter activist Mark Dice tweeted, “So, Black Lives Matter, unless it’s a black transgender person who happened to dent another black person’s car in Minneapolis?”

Several concerned citizens reached out to Dior on Facebook. Dior soon posted a request for donations to “help me pay for the vehicles I destroyed…”
