Turan fractured his cheek and has a swollen eye, and he is checking to see if there may be permanent damage to his eyesight.

Turan is a President Donald Trump supporter and told reporters that “it’s sad” a hat would cause someone to beat him up, according to Fox 5. 

“I love President Trump,” Turan said according to Fox 5 NY. “I think he’s doing a great job. It’s sad to get beat up for wearing this hat.  This is America.”

Turan held a press conference Thursday to ask that the NYPD find the people who attacked him.

There have been past reports of people being harassed and beaten up for wearing a MAGA hat. A Hispanic women said she was nearly assaulted by someone who took offense to the hat in April, and a legal American citizen from Togo alleged that he was attacked in April as well for sporting the gear.

The investigation is ongoing, Detective Denise Moroney, a Deputy Commissioner Public Information spokesperson, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.


  1. Hello,
    regardless of what you think about Trump beating people up for not agreeing with you
    shows what you are made of ….


  2. I hope the NYPD is able to identify those who did this and can find them to arrest them. Then this man should get 1 of the good lawyers to sue the pants off of all of them.

  3. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the cops to arrest the perps. The left wing pinkos have the majority of city governments terrified to go against ANTIFA and the like!
    Witness several years out here on the west coast when the news agencies and the cops did not arrest ANTIFA members who assaulted conservative’s on the street!! The Police Cowards claimed they could NOT TELL who started the fights, Was it the folks carrying clubs or was it the folks with blood running down their faces!!
    Our local Sheriff deputies would have arrested those masked bullies, pronto, cause Homey don’t play that here in Sacramento.

  4. It should be standard protocol that people like the “kids” should do at least a 72-hour stay in a psych ward then do jail time. Absolutely insane behavior. There should be a zero tolerance for it. Meanwhile people are jailed for one weed offense or other nonsense Anglo laws.
