"My mom is the most kindhearted, loving, and selfless person you'll ever meet. She has a great amount of pride and respect for her religion, culture, and customs. The fact that she can't walk out of her home without feeling safe is sickening. Tonight a couple of guys stalked her out of our local Walmart and attacked her with blows to her head and body with eggs. The reason they thought it was necessary to attack her and my little sister was because they were wearing a hijab. I am at loss for words due to the immense amount of hate that is in this world. No one should have to see their mom broken because of a couple of people having disgusting prejudices about people that do not look like them."

It has been unreported if the mother or the son contacted the police after the incident.
