90s rock legend Courtney Love Cobain took Linda Sarsour, co-chair of the Women’s March to the woodshed Wednesday.

We’ve documented Sarsour‘s history of anti-Zionism, her love of Sharia law, and her attack on Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a victim of female genital mutilation.

Love’s disgust for Sarsour seems to stem from Sarsour’s involvement with a Somali woman named Rahma Warsame. Sarsour, along with CAIR, allege Warsame was violently assaulted by a white man Saturday. They allege the man said, “you all will be shipped back to Africa” before beating Warsame, further claiming the man they believe responsible has a long history of making racially charged statements. Sarsour and CAIR have encouraged the investigation of the incident as a hate crime and are working to raise $100,000 for Warsame.

But that’s not quite what happened, at least not according to the official police report, or a report from the Daily Caller who interviewed two other parties involved in Saturday’s incident.

According to those reports, Warsame was yelling at and beating her son with a shoe when neighbor Samantha Morales stepped in, hoping to defuse the situation:

…Morales said that the saga began after she yelled from her porch at a woman who was screaming at her child and hitting him with a shoe in a common area behind her apartment.

“I went outside. I wasn’t trying to get involved. I just thought the presence of an adult would have stopped her,” Morales says.

But Morales says the woman — who Morales says she does not know — left for a moment and came back angry and threatened to break the windows on her car and apartment. The woman, who Morales says was carrying a stick, then walked near Morales’ car and accused Morales and Boyce of having taken her child.

Morales says she called 911 and explained what had transpired before the threats.

The standoff escalated to violence soon after, Morales says.

“Four or five different men” assaulted Morales before someone used a taser on her, she claims. Then a group of women joined in the assault, both Morales and Boyce said.

It was after the taser was used that Boyce, who was watching from the apartment, says he sprung into action.

Boyce says he’s sure he hit someone in the scuffle but says he can’t be sure that he struck Warsame. He also strongly denies purposely targeting her.

Morales too was taken to the hospital and claims she suffered a concussion. “They’re not even mentioning that I was the victim. They came at me. The woman that’s in the hospital is part of the group that was aggressing me,” she told the Daily Caller.

Even the police report indicated there were so many conflicting stories, it was impossible to nail a singular offender, but one thing seems clear — no one was completely innocent in this incident.

Needless to say, Love was not impressed by Sarsour’s fundraising attempts for a woman who was likely an aggressor in a neighborhood brawl.

When Love was asked to remove her tweet, she responded by tweeting the police report which clearly states:

“There is no evidence at this time suggesting the incident involved any type of bias which would constitute the incident being investigated as a hate crime.”

Love went on to call Sarsour a “fraud.”

Sarsour then countered, saying Love claimed Warsame was never assaulted:

What a zinger!

How many trite, boilerplate platitudes can one possibly fit into a Tweet, you ask? About this many:
