TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A 16-year-old young woman, who wears an inflatable T-Rex costume to raise funds, on Friday (Feb. 8) reported being assaulted while performing on the streets of Tainan.
On Friday, the female high school student uploaded a photo on Facebook showing a mask covered in blood and wrote the following:
“After being hit and bleeding, I feel like my nose was almost broken. But I don’t know who it was. It’s very puzzling. Who on provoked whom? And nobody saw… No one can testify for me.”
The student says that she comes from a disadvantaged family and she dresses up in the costume in order to help her family cover living expenses and to help with her tuition. The other reason why she dresses up in a full costume is to conceal her identity, even from her family. [FULL STORY]
