Women’s March Movement Founder Calls on Co-Chairs to Step Down: ‘The Relationship with Farrakhan and Hamas Were Troubling’

‘They continued on their personal pages and their platforms to be aligned with him’

EXCERPT:

SHOOK: “Tree of Life happened and then Alyssa Milano came out and Debra Messing came out and there was the German Indio that rescinded the reward. And we are a global movement, and the relationship with Farrakhan and Hamas were troubling to many of the community and have been for a while, so those were the reasons."
CAMEROTA: "Let me just try to connect some of the dots as well. A week before the Tree of Life shooting, the shooting at that synagogue, Louis Farrakhan made public anti-Semitic statement. He said, 'I’m not an anti-Semite, I’m anti-termite.' I believe that your co-chairs still — well, I don't know if they still supported him, to tell you the truth, because if you are citing the Instagram post where one of the co-chairs Tamika Mallory said, 'Thank God this man is still alive and doing well. He is definitely the GOAT. Thank God for Louis Farrakhan,' that was a year earlier. So are you saying that even after Louis Farrakhan said that, there was still support for him among your co-chairs?"
SHOOK: "Yes, there was. They continued on their personal pages and on their own platforms to be aligned with him. And they have not separated their support for him."
