Maybe she's born with it, or maybe she a liar with too much time on her hands. A woman in Texarkana, Texas is being called out on social media for claiming she was attacked by a group of black men, but her injuries were faked with makeup.
Ashley Casey Martin wrote, in her now-deleted Facebook post, “Just got jumped by 3 African Americans ourside of the as Walmart they are in a white ford 150 extended cab. Arkansas tags. They hit me inside Walmart and were cussing. I was very polite and asked them to lower their voices and the cuss words in front of my 3 year old daughter and this is the outcome. What has the world come to…”
In the accompanying pictures she appears to be sporting two black eyes and a bloody nose and lip. However, people quickly realized the wounds were poorly-applied makeup and began lashing back at her.
In following up on the story, the Daily Dot learned that Walmart wasn’t aware of any violent incidents taking place at the store during the time frame in question, and that Texarkana Police have no record of the attack.
When asked why the Facebook post accusing Martin of faking had been removed, police told the Daily Dot, “We were informed that she is emotionally disturbed and that they are attempting to get her the assistance that she needs. We have removed the post to avoid contributing to her difficult struggle.”
Martin maintained that the beating was real, and posted a second unconvincing photo as proof, writing:
“Here is your police report. Sorry I got jumped by three African American young men. I have 2 black eyes and nose still is bleeding, and somehow I am in the wrong. Enough for people to say it was makeup, how embarassing and very rude quite frankly. I don’t want you pitty (sic) attention anything. I’m just warning there are dangerous people in Texarkana be careful. They did this to me for no reason in front of my 3 year old. At Texas side Walmart.”
She has since deleted all of her social media accounts.
