Hopefully you haven’t missed what has been happening in America over the past seven days, but it’s pretty darn important. Not only was Donald Trump sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America, and over 4 million people united together in protest at the Women’s March; but Joey Salads has just uploaded a social experiment in which he is seen being (allegedly) attacked for being a Trump supporter in New York City.
In his short video, Salads is seen wondering around Union Square for two hours immediately after the Women’s March on Saturday. Upon his head is one of the most prominent symbols of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign: the “Make America Great Again” hat. In an effort to see how people would react to seeing him sport the controversial head wear, he was filmed by a friend as they set off for a stroll in a “Democrat stronghold”.
During his two-hour walk, Joey Salads is seen being shouted at and spat on by furious “Anti-Trump” supporters.
One passer-by was so angry that they ripped the MAGA hat from his head and threw it to the ground. Another person calls him a “racist piece of sh*t”, directly after spitting at the ground in front of his feet. However, the video also shows him being greeted very nicely by other Trump supporters.
Understandably, some questions have been raised regarding the legitimacy of Salads’ video.
Salads has already been caught red-handed faking another social experiment, where a Trump car was destroyed in a “black neighbourhood”. Comments on social media were quick to point out that everyone who allegedly attacked him is wearing a hoodie, and their faces are concealed from the camera; suggesting more actors were involved.
Joey Salads has not responded to these allegations.
One quick scroll through his social media highlights the fact that Salads is a very vocal Trump supporter, and some of his previous tweets have been directed at “leftist” YouTubers who directly oppose his political views. Because of this, people have been suggesting that this latest social experiment might just be fabricated propaganda.
