“This is heartbreaking. White supremacy kills,” Tlaib tweeted, linking to a post memorializing the victims.

The New York Times reported on Wednesday that one of the shooting suspects had links to the Black Hebrew Israelites.

After getting backlash, Tlaib deleted the tweet but failed to issue a correction or an apology.

Tlaib in the past has tweeted out four separate hate hoaxes — all of which were falsely blamed on white people — and failed to apologize for or correct any of them.
