NYU Students Blame Chelsea Clinton for New Zealand Attacks

TWITTER"I do believe that words matter. I believe we have to show solidarity with each other" Clinton told the students

On Friday, a gunman opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand's Christchurch, killing 49 people.

Donald Trump Jr. joined Twitter users in support of Chelsea Clinton on March 16, when he came to her defense after an NYU student blamed her for the mosque terrorist attacks in NZ, during a vigil for the tragedy.

Trump Jr. tagged Clinton in a tweet on Saturday condemning the harassment and praising the former first daughter for "condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate".

It's sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism. "We should all be condemning anti-Semitism & all forms of hate". The son of President Donald Trump, 72, didn't hesitate to speak his mind in his tweet and even suggested praise for Chelsea. "Anyone who doesn't understand this is part of the problem".

The political foes became bedfellows after an NYU student confronted Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, at a Friday night vigil for the massacre victims.

"It certainly was never my intention, I do believe words matter, I believe we have to show solidarity", Clinton says.

"Forty-nine people are dead because of the rhetoric that you put out there", she charged. "I want you to know that".

In response, Chelsea said: 'I'm so sorry that you feel that way.

"I'm so sorry that you feel that way. What does that mean?" Moreover, in 2012, Omar tweeted, "Israel has hypnotized the world".

Clinton responded, putting her hands up to her heart, and telling the group that she was sorry they felt her comments were wrong. Clinton called out the freshman Democrat for allegedly trafficking in anti-Semitism.

As noted by Schow, Dweik doubled-down on her Clinton-bashing via Twitter.

She refused to apologise for her words and explained that she didn't plan the confrontation.

Others were quick to offer Clinton support and mock the Left's "Woke" Olympics, too. "There are no rules, everything is offensive".

After the very public row with Clinton began making headlines, the activist said that she was receiving "death threats" for "calling a hypocritical white woman out". So far, an Australian man named Brenton Tarrant has been charged with murder and three other people remain in police custody.
