On Saturday, comedian and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani shared a story on Twitter of being verbally attacked by white Trump supporters while out at a bar in LA with Silicon Valley costar Thomas Middleditch.
At that point, the bartender intervenes and removes the two men. Trump supporters on Twitter have been accusing both Nanjiani and Middleditch of making the story up.
There have been hundreds of reports of these types of incidents—and worse—being perpetrated to people of color, queer people, and women across the country.
