The NAACP has come under fire today over a tweet it posted to mark the nineteenth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

NAACP Tweets About 9/11

“Today we remember all the lives lost and families affected during the horrific incident that occurred in 2001,” the NAACP tweeted alongside a photo of the tribute lights in place of the fallen World Trade Center towers.

This immediately backfired on the NAACP when social media users expressed outrage over the use of the word “incident.” The NAACP was clearly ignoring the fact that radical Islamic terrorists carried out this attack on America, killing nearly 3,000 people in the process.

NAACP Hit With Backlash

Social media users fired back at the NAACP right away, saying how ridiculously offensive the tweet was.

“Is it really that hard to say terrorist attack?” one user asked, with another asking, “Why don’t you just tweet out #AllBuildingsMatter like the rest of these disgusting people?”

“INCIDENT???” another user exclaimed. “WTF did you just call an incident. 9/11/2001 was a TERRORIST ATTACK… PERIOD. How f***ing stupid of you to try to sugar coat that s**t. Just utterly disgusting. Clearly your asses already forgot!!”

Others pointed out that this was reminiscent of when Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) infamously described 9/11 as an event in which “some people did something.”

“9/11 was a terrorist attack and to use other words to describe it , especially ‘incident’ is every bit as bad as ‘some people did something.’ Nothing about 9/11 was of seemingly minor importance,” one user noted. “Horrible choice of wording.”

“What the hell is your problem?” another person asked. “It pains you that much to call the worst terrorist attack in history ‘an act of terror’? Your hatred for America is showing. Major ‘some people did something’ vibes. News flash: people of all races ran into the fire to save people of all races.”

“The incident that happened on December 7th 1941 where some people did stuff,” a third user wrote, referring to Pearl Harbor.
