A video showing a Muslim student blaming a very pregnant Chelsea Clinton for the anti-Muslim massacre of 49 people in New Zealand instantly went viral.
The moment took place at a vigil to honor the victims gunned down at two New Zealand mosques.
Clinton, pregnant with her third child, displays extraordinary composure while an angry student alleges Clinton’s recent commentary about anti-Semitic comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar about a pro-Israel lobby, helped cause the massacre in New Zealand.
“This, right here, is a result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world,” the student tells Clinton. “And I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep down inside. Forty-nine people died because of the rhetoric you put out there.”
“I’m so sorry you feel that way,” Clinton replies in the video. “Certainly, it was never my intention. I do believe words matter. I believe we have to show solidarity.”
Another student snaps at Chelsea: “What does ‘I’m sorry you feel that way’ mean? What does that mean?”
So, now, it’s Chelsea Clinton’s fault a violent gun massacre took place in New Zealand???
Here is a pregnant Chelsea Clinton being accosted in public by NYU students blaming her for the New Zealand massacre. You are free to have your opinion, but how you express yourself matters. Note how Clinton never shuts down or stops listening, despite not deserving any of this. pic.twitter.com/V6XcC3lWCB

I know that on my best day I have 1/10 the grace that she has, but damn I aspire to be more like her. And I wish that people would knock it off with the misdirected anger.

The girl in the video shut down her Twitter for a while, but apparently reactivated it today.
It seems she’s something of a homophobe and racist. These tweets were culled from her account.
She also appears to be a Bernie Sanders supporter which might explain things a bit more.
“There is no proof the young woman who accosted Chelsea Clinton is a Bernie supporter.”
Except she is and there are receipts. Whoopsie doodle… pic.twitter.com/8vuvZc4lEz
