An image shared on Facebook claimed that Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar tweeted “they reap what they sow” in response to the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
It also showed a tweet of Fox News purportedly sharing the story. “This was taken down,” the image claimed. “Retweet the hell out of it before they take it down again.”
The article goes on to state the following:
There is no evidence Omar said this about the fire at Notre Dame. The Twitter account that shared the claim is not actually associated with Fox News.
Criticism of Omar has persisted since her election in November, and in light of the April 15 fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, some have tried to cast her as unsympathetic to the tragedy because of her religion. Omar is one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
There is no evidence, however, that Omar ever tweeted “they reap what they sow.” Were the tweet deleted, there would have likely been screenshots of the tweet with a different timestamp or number of interactions.
There is also no evidence of such a Fox News article or headline anywhere online.
Omar did make a public statement about the fire at Notre Dame on her Twitter, saying, “Art and architecture have a unique ability to help us connect across our differences and bring people together in important ways. Thinking of the people of Paris and praying for every first responder trying to save this wonder.”
