People on Twitter called out CNN for its "hypocrisy" after a tweet and an article by the left-leaning network called the death of Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar an "accident". Anwar was killed on Tuesday, March 23, in Washington, DC, after being fatally assaulted with a taser by two teen carjackers.

"Police said the girls, 13 and 15, assaulted an Uber Eats driver with a Taser while carjacking him, which led to an accident in which he was fatally injured," CNN captioned a tweet which carried their article on the two teenage murder suspects being charged. The article in question says, "The girls, 13 and 15, assaulted Anwar with a Taser while carjacking him, which led to an accident in which he was fatally injured, police said."

Though the network did not call the murder an accident, the phrase angered a number of people on Twitter, most of whom pointed out the fact that CNN had used quite a different narrative when it came to the recent Atlanta, Georgia, and Boulder, Colorado, shootings that ended up claiming 18 lives. Some of them noted that the change in tone when it comes to treating this specific incident could be because the alleged perpetrators were African-American teens. People were especially sickened by the use of the word 'accident' to describe the assault on Anwar after a video of the incident went viral on Twitter.



 

"A white man shoots 6 Asians and 2 white people, and he is a white supremacist. A middle eastern man shoots up a store, and well, 'Don’t jump to conclusions,' they say. 2 young black girls assault a man with a taser and murder him, and it’s an accident. Oh, the hypocrisy," one of them said while another noted, "An 'accident' is spilling your drink on the floor. An 'accident' is ordering the wrong item. An 'accident' isn’t intentional assault and theft. As a teenager, you’re well past the age of understanding that people can die from committing these crimes. Shameful headline, CNN."

A third added, "'An accident'. Get in the sea, you fake news peddling lowlives." One more wrote, "An immigrant was murdered in cold blood during a car jacking. It’s on video. CNN called it an 'accident.'" Another commented, "I watched the footage. The word 'accident' has no place here." The next quipped, "tasing an innocent gig worker then stealing his car and killing him. CNN calls this 'an accident.'" A person reacted with, "Tale of two headlines. White man kills Asian women --> 'White supremacy' 'haunting' 'Asian Americans' Two Black girls kill an Asian Muslim man --> 'The girls' 'assaulted' an 'Uber Eats driver' with a Taser, 'which led' to 'an accident' 'in which' 'he was fatally injured'."

A commenter tweeted, "Interesting spin @CNN 'Which led to an accident which he was fatally injured' is not a synonym for Murder." One more remarked, "Which 'led to an accident?' Two criminals killed a man while he was trying to work, you absolutely soulless ghouls." Another commented, "Some corrections you dishonest fuckfaces. Not an accident. A murder. You forgot to mention that he was an immigrant murdered by two black teens. You must have forgot it because if it were two white teens you liars would be naming it a hate crime."
