Samuel Paty died for a lie. The beloved French teacher was beheaded by a wannabe jihadi who was told by a schoolgirl that Paty showed an image of the Prophet Muhammad during a lesson on free speech. Now, the teen girl has admitted lying about Paty. Her filthy fib kicked off an online hate campaign targeting the teacher that culminated in his grisly beheading in the street last Oct. 16. The unnamed girl claimed the teacher asked Muslim students to leave the class before allegedly showing the image from Charlie Hebdo. The problem is, it never happened and the girl wasn’t even in class that day. “She lied because she felt trapped in a spiral because her classmates had asked her to be a spokesperson,” lawyer Mbeko Tabula said of his 13-year-old client. With a history of behavioural problems, the girl then got her father to file a complaint. That triggered the social media rage machine and Paty was inundated with death threats.
