Chelsea Clinton Confronted at Vigil by Student Blaming Her ‘Rhetoric’ for NZ Mosque Shooting

Chelsea Clinton attended an NYU vigil for the victims of the horrific New Zealand mosque terror attack, and a video of a confrontation from the vigil has gone viral overnight.

Clinton had publicly weighed in on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar in multiple tweets:

Clinton apologizes in the video posted to Twitter from the vigil, before the activist confronting her tells her, “This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out.”

“49 people died because of the rhetoric you put out there.”

Many people came to Clinton’s defense, including people who generally don’t defend the Clintons:

Fox & Friends this morning defended Clinton too, with Ed Henry saying she had nothing to apologize for. You can watch the segment––including the video of the confrontation––above.
