A 9/11 mourner, taking part in the annual 9/11 memorial service in New York, took the opportunity to mock Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., NBC News is reporting.
And another mourner at the ceremony pushed for stricter gun laws.
Nicholas Haros Jr. of New Jersey, whose mother, Francis Haros, was killed in the attack on the World Trade Center, took the stage wearing a shirt with the words: “Some people did something” written on the front.
Omar, a Muslim American, has come under attack for using those words earlier this year in discussing the attacks.
“Today I am here to respond to you, exactly who did what to whom,” Haros said. “We know who and what was done, there’s no uncertainty about that.”
“Our constitutional freedoms were attacked and our nation’s founding on Judeo-Christian principles were attacked,” Haros said. “That’s what some people did — got that now? We are here today, Congresswoman, to tell you and ‘the squad’ just who did what to whom.”
NBC News said Omar could not be immediately reached for comment.
However, she tweeted earlier in the day: “We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil.”
Also, during the ceremony, Debra Epps, whose brother Christopher died in the attacks, said: “I hope today that legislation continues to move forward in banning guns … so that we can live in a world at peace and the home of the brave.”
