Obama and Clinton ripped on social media for referring to bombing victims as ‘Easter worshippers’

Yesterday, suicide bombers in Sri Lanka targeted Christians celebrating Easter, killing nearly 300 and injuring at least 500 people.

Former President Barack Obama took to Twitter to offer prayers, as did former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. But many people are criticizing the term Obama and Clinton used – they both called the victims “Easter worshippers.”

Many wondered why they couldn’t use the term Christians when they have previously used the term Muslim when expressing condolences for violent acts carried out against members of that faith.

Social media responded by ripping the two apart.
