Amber Tamblyn Got Shit After Claiming That A Hasidic Man In A Van Tried To Run Her Over 

March 5, 2018 / Posted by:

Amber Tamblyn tweeted about a scary experience she had yesterday when a man in a van almost hit her as she was crossing the street with a stroller. Amber thinks it was intentional and posted about it in the hopes of finding a witness.  But as Page Six reports, her characterization of the van driver has sparked some controversy. According to Amber, the men of Brooklyn’s Hasidic community are out to get her.

According to Page Six:

Amber Tamblyn claims a “Hasidic man” almost ran her over in Brooklyn on Sunday while she was pushing her baby in a stroller — and now people are blasting her on Twitter after she chastised men within the Jewish faith and accused them of targeting women.

Here’s Amber’s tweet:

Lots of people showed concern and asked after Amber and baby to make sure they were ok. But then things got a little weird with Amber’s follow up post about the man who she claims was out to get her. Amber had a few people asking “say what now?” with her follow up tweet.

Um, are you sure it wasn’t James Woods in a disguise? Page Six asked the police if any kind of report was filed, and they said that they have nothing.

It’s unclear if the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star called police to report the driver or what happened on Sunday. Authorities don’t have any information on the incident.

Amber heard people’s criticism but stood by her characterization of the incident. She later tweeted:

I’m super confused. A stroller tap is horrifying but a finger wave coupled with a “watch where you’re going” is hardly evidence of an elaborate plot to eradicate jay-walking gentile women from the streets of Brooklyn. But what do I know. I do think somebody still needs to go check under James Woods’s bed for wigs before drawing any conclusions.
