Chelsea Clinton Blamed for Helping Incite New Zealand Gunman

Clinton was attending a vigil in NY to honor the victims when students berated her and recorded the confrontation.

"I'm so sorry, that certainly was never my intention, I believe that words matter", Clinton responds in the video.

The video, originally posted to Twitter by a student who was present, was later deleted - but by then it had been downloaded by others and quickly re-posted. "Forty-nine people died because of the rhetoric you put out there". "I believe we have to show solidarity", Clinton said in response to the students. Clinton tried to deescalate the situation, but the students continued, with more joining in.

"This right here is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you put out into the world", Ms Dweik said.

Trump, likely referring to a Tweet Clinton wrote in February in which she criticized comments from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) which sparked controversy both inside and outside of the Democratic party, as lawmakers and the public, alike, debated over whether the congresswoman's remarks were anti-Semitic. "I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep inside".

"What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" asked a male student nearby, seemingly frustrated.

Ms Omar is yet to comment on the confrontation, but took to social media to write: "We can't let fear replace our joy and we must always believe love trumps hate!"

The freshman Minnesota Democrat slammed Israel's treatment of Palestinians in a series of tweets, claiming money and lobbying were prompting the United States to defend Israel and avoid discussion on the matter. "Sincerely, American Jews", Clinton chimed in.

The resultant Twitterstorm has continued with support for Clinton, pregnant with her third child.

"We were shocked when Clinton arrived at the vigil, given that she had not yet apologized to Rep. Omar for the public vilification against her".

There has been a lot of talk over the last 24 hours about how certain people's rhetoric, or lack of condemnation of white nationalism and hate may inspire actions like those seen in the massacre of 49 Muslims in Christchurch, New Zealand yesterday.
