Donald Trump Jr uses Youtube shooting to launch a rant against 'liberal vegans'
President Donald Trump's eldest son — Donald Trump Jr. — wrote a rant against liberals on Tuesday, shortly after the shooting at YouTube's headquarters in San Bruno, California.
A 39-year-old woman, Nasim Aghdam, barged into YouTube's headquarters on Tuesday and opened fire on the employees, seriously wounding three people. The victims included a 36-year-old man who is said to be in a critical condition, and two women aged 32 and 27. Aghadam, who had an active YouTube channel, killed herself. She was reportedly disgruntled because YouTube was censoring her videos.
It had not been even hours since the incident when Trump Jr decided it as an opportune moment to launch an attack against "vegan liberals," and supporting the pro-gun lobbying group, the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Trump Jr wrote: You think there’s any chance whatsoever that a mass shooters hateful Instagram and YouTube channels would be pulled immediately if they were NRA members as opposed to liberal Vegan PETA activists? Asking for a few million friends in the @NRA
The tweet, however, did not go down well with social media users and sparked outrage from multiple people who slammed Trump Jr. for politicizing the incident and giving a statement about the incident when police were still probing the shooting.
One Twitter user, Kevin Heldman, wrote: "What the hell is the matter with you. Calm down and think before you spout off on serious issuses.people are dead and wounded,it's not a game for you to have political fun with."
