When Chelsea Clinton showed up at a vigil Friday night in NY for victims of the New Zealand mosque massacre, she was confronted by a small group of college students who accused her of inciting the violence.

"I'm so sorry that you feel that way". "Certainly, it was never my intention".

"They do matter! This, right here", the activist interrupted angrily, pointing to the vigil, "is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world! I believe we have to show solidarity", Clinton told the angry students.

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

"And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deeply - 49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there", Dweik continued.

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" another student asked. According to The New York Post, Clinton was attending a vigil on the campus for the 49 people killed in the attacks earlier that day. The tragedy came just a week after the U.S. House voted on a resolution condemning hate speech, inspired by Omar's comments.


Donald Trump Jr. defended Chelsea Clinton against accusations she helped to spark the New Zealand mosque massacres by spreading anti-Muslim sentiment.

The clip immediately went viral and while the person who originally posted then deleted her Twitter account following a backlash, the footage is still available online. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up. "Anyone who doesn't understand that is part of the problem", he tweeted.

Senior Leen Dweik began pointing her finger in Clinton's face and angrily accusing her rhetoric of inspiring the mass shooter.

Clinton was one of numerous public and political figures who condemned Omar's controversial comments on Israel last month as perpetuating "anti-Semitic tropes".

Waikato Muslim Association President Dr Asad Mohsin thanks well-wishers at a Hamilton mosque. Conservative pundit Candace Owens said blaming others for such a tragedy was "nonsense". "Please stop the nonsense". Former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, 63, also took to Twitter to support Chelsea. "Period. No one "MADE" him do it", his tweet read.
