Donald Trump Jr. joined Twitter users in support of Chelsea Clinton on March 16, when he came to her defense after an NYU student blamed her for the mosque terrorist attacks in NZ, during a vigil for the tragedy.

"This right here is the result of the massacre stoked by people like you and the words that you have put out into the world", one student said to Clinton. The students appear to have been angry that she, herself the wife of a Jewish man, had admonished antisemitism following remarks made by Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who some believed were antisemitic in nature.

"I'm so sorry that you feel that way, certainly it was never my intention, I do believe words matter", she replied.

"We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism", Clinton tweeted on February 10.

Clinton has Omar, who suggested that Jewish political lobbying organizations paid United States politicians for their support of Tel Aviv, which many perceived as an expression of anti-Semitism.

"I'm so sorry you feel that way", Clinton, who is pregnant with her third child, replied. "Anyone who doesn't understand this is part of the problem", Donald Jr.'s tweet read.

On Friday night, the daughter of former president Bill Clinton paid her respects to the victims as she participated in a vigil at New York University in Manhattan.

If you're wondering what this has to do with Chelsea Clinton, you're not alone.

Clinton tweeted to Omar after the accusation, saying, "Co-signed as an American. We should all expect elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism", Clinton tweeted.

On Twitter, Ms Dweik responded to criticisms, saying she did not corner Chelsea Clinton and the confrontation "wasn't planned".

"Chelsea Clinton was trying to speak out against bigotry and her words were used to claim she was a bigot", said journalist Tim Pool.

Journalist Michael Weiss sarcastically offered: "Seem to have missed the Chelsea Clinton connection to the New Zealand attack".
