Chelsea Clinton Harassed At Vigil Over Past Comments Condemning Anti-Semitism

While attending a vigil at New York University for the victims of the vicious attack, which left 49 dead and dozens more injured, several Muslim students went up Clinton and began berating her for her past tweet.

Rose Asaf, a student who was there, posted a video of the exchange on Twitter.

Still, the student persisted in dressing down Clinton, claiming the shootings were "stoked by people like you".

Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, remained calm and collected while the student spoke, and responded by saying, "I'm so sorry you feel that way". "Certainly, it was never my intention".

"T$3 he CAUCASITY that chelsea clinton has showing up to a vigil for the 49 muslims massacred in an islamophobic hate crime after STOKING ISLAMOPHOBIA AND RACISM surrounding ilhan omar. f**king ridiculous", she tweeted. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up.

Clinton responded, putting her hands up to her heart, and telling the group that she was sorry they felt her comments were wrong. The tragedy came just a week after the U.S. House voted on a resolution condemning hate speech, inspired by Omar's comments. "Anyone who doesn't understand this is part of the problem". "I believe we have to show solidarity", Clinton told the angry students.

Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was one of many political leaders who denounced anti-Semitism after Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar criticised Israel's treatment of Palestinians and alleged money and lobbying were driving the United States to defend Israel and halt debate over the issue.

Alleged gunman, Brenton, 28, is an Australian personal trainer and he allegedly killed 49 people and injured 48 others at two mosques in Christchurch, NZ on March 15.

"And I want you to know that", continued the student.

Last month, Clinton had criticized Omar's tweet suggesting that American politicians were paid to be pro-Israel. Earlier in the day, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) tweeted: "Daily reminder that we have a **Muslim Ban** in this country made out of the President's hostility to Muslim people w/ little-to-no supporting evidence, and a Republican Party that tolerates it".
