ISIS claims responsibility for Timmy’s playground punch of Mike
PORTLAND, Ore. – After Timmy Gilbert punched classmate Mikey Rollins on the playground Wednesday, ISIS took to social media to claim responsibility.
An ISIS account claimed Timmy’s punch of Mike was done out of a devotion for Allah and the Islamic State.
Timmy, and Timmy’s parents, did not immediately respond to requests for comment, fueling speculation that the attack on the playground, which left Mike with a large bruise, could have been motivated by an alignment with the terrorist organization.
ISIS, having lost control of Mosul and now their stronghold Raqqa, have increased their online pleas for violence in recent months.
