Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) deleted a Twitter post on Thursday that blamed the Jersey City kosher deli shooting on “white supremacy,” after users pointed out it was allegedly perpetrated by two suspects lined to the Black Hebrew Israelites.
In response to the shooting, Tlaib posted, “This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills.”
After being informed by other social media users that the suspects in the attack are linked to the Black Hebrew Israelites, who are labelled a hate group by the SPLC, Tlaib removed the post.
