"Following Donald Trump’s stunning win in the election, a plague of hate crime hoaxes has been sweeping the country.
From California to Illinois to Louisiana, stories are cropping up of hate crimes perpetrated by Trump supporters that later prove to be fabricated by the so-called “victim” of the crime.
Here is a roundup of the “hate crimes” identified as hoaxes so far, although there are other unsubstantiated stories that perhaps have not been identified as hoaxes because the perpetrator is more competent.

- Bisexual student receives homophobic notes
But the school president has reported the notes were “fabricated.”
Taylor Volk said she found a note taped to her door that read “Back to hell” and “#Trump” and included homophobic slurs following the election, as well as several anonymous emails with similar messages.
She reported the messages on her Facebook, and spoke to the press about the incidents. “I just want them to stop,” she told NBC News last week.
Volk also said she was confident the school would investigate.
Indeed, the university’s president announced Tuesday the notes were a hoax, and that Volk is no longer enrolled at the university.
Long, sick list.
