Chelsea Clinton tried to attend a vigil at New York University to show respect for the victims of the frightful massacre in New Zealand but pro-Muslim activists used the opportunity to berate her for calling out anti-Semitism.

The video was taken on Friday at a vigil in NY for the 49 victims of the shootings, which targeted two mosques in the city of Christchurch.

Clinton responded once more, "I'm so sorry you feel that way", before another student yells "What does "I'm sorry you feel that way" mean?" "Certainly, it was my never my intention". I do believe that words matter. "I believe we have to show solidarity", Clinton told students who accosted her at the vigil.

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

Omar, who invited Clinton to talk about the issue. "I look forward to building an inclusive movement for justice with you", she added.

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

Extreme gusts of winds topping 100 miles per hour have slammed through areas of Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Evacuations also occurred in several other eastern Nebraska communities and in some areas of western Iowa.

Alleged gunman, Brenton, 28, is an Australian personal trainer and he allegedly killed 49 people and injured 48 others at two mosques in Christchurch, NZ on March 15. The tragedy came just a week after the U.S. House voted on a resolution condemning hate speech, inspired by Omar's comments. Chelsea should be praised for speaking up.

Before the incident, she took aim at the "caucasity" of the fact that Clinton was invited, accusing her of "stoking Islamophobia and racism surrounding Ilhan Omar." .

The students' comments were in response to Clinton's criticism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota), who sparked controversy last month when she tweeted that a fellow lawmaker was motivated by money to defend Israel. "Anyone who doesn't understand this is part of the problem".

Some of the NYU students told Clinton she wasn't welcome at the vigil.

"It's sickening to see people blame @ChelseaClinton for the NZ attacks because she spoke out against anti-Semitism", Trump tweeted.

Waikato Muslim Association President Dr Asad Mohsin thanks well-wishers at a Hamilton mosque. "Please stop the nonsense". Tweets poured in from figures like Donald Trump Jr. and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, to name a few. "Period. No one "MADE" him do it", his tweet read.
