Breitbart reporter fired for tweeting hate against Muslim

Katie McHugh tweeted: “There would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there. #LondonBridge.”

LONDON: A Breitbart editor has been fired after posting anti-Muslim tweets comments in the aftermath of Saturday’s London terrorist attack.

On Saturday, shortly before 7 p.m, Katie McHugh in a tweet still pinned to the top of her timeline, wrote, “There would be no deadly terror attacks in the U.K. if Muslims didn’t live there,” using the #LondonBridge hashtag.

McHugh colleagues at Breitbart characterised her remarks as “appalling,” “terrible,” and “dumb.”

CNN first reported the firing that Breitbart Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow announced Ms. McHugh’s departure to the site’s staff on Monday morning.

McHugh confirmed the firing on Twitter saying that the website fired her for “telling the truth about Islam and Muslim immigration.”

In a statement posted on WeSearchr.com, McHugh said:

Breitbart News fired an editor for speaking frankly about Islam and Muslim immigration. If there were no Muslims in London, there would be no Muslim terror attacks, period.

I said nothing wrong. As President Donald Trump says, if we don’t get smart, it will only get worse.

It’s also interesting Breitbart News chose to fire me rather than colleagues leaking to CNN.

McHugh sparked outrage with her tweet on social media of being racist and “spreading hate and fear”
