“Amber Tamblyn has once again caused a stir on social media.
On Sunday, as many people were focused on the Oscars, “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” actress was generating some drama of her own, with comments about Hasidic men.
The kerfuffle kicked off with a tweet saying that a “Hasidic man in a grey van” attempted to hit her and her baby in a crosswalk.
“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,” Tamblyn tweeted. “That woman was me.”
Tamblyn followed up with a tweet saying that her experience Sunday wasn’t an isolated incident.
“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,” Tamblyn wrote. “Any woman riding a bike through South Williamsburg can attest. I hope this guy is caught.”
