(Algemeiner) A new 'game' circulating on social media inspired a group of teenagers to assault a Jewish girl in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and resulted in a display of hatred toward Jews upon the suspect's arrest, local blog CrownHeights.info reported on Wednesday.
The 'game' is called 'What the hell are they?' The objective is to hit someone on their feet or legs if he or she is wearing nicer shoes than you, shout "what the hell are they" and then run away.
The victim, a 13-year-old student of local Chabad girls school Beis Rivkah, was approached by two girls and a boy as she walked down Lefferts Avenue. One of the girls shoved and kicked her, then shouted the game's mantra.
