CNN Reporter Deletes Tweet After Calling Nearby Israelis ‘Scum’

CNN journalist, reporting from border with Gaza, refers to some Israelis as "scum," then deletes tweet.

CNN international correspondent Diana Magnay hurriedly deleted a tweet she sent out referring to Israelis as ‘scum.’ But she did not delete it before 247 others retweeted it, and 49 favorited it. And then the retweets were retweeted, and now it’s all over the globe.

So why did Magnay refer to some Israelis as ‘scum’?

She is covering the Gaza-Israel conflict, and is in Sderot, which is on the border with Gaza. Her tweet explains it all:

CNN's Diana Magnay deleted this tweet after sending it. Too late.

A cursory look through Magnay’s twitter feed does not reveal her ever referring to Palestinian Arabs as “scum,” when they hand out candy when Israelis or Americans are killed.  She even covered the trial of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik and, although she didn’t seem to like him much, never referred to him with negative terms.

Magnay has not yet responded to a request for comment.

She is unprofessional and should keep her anti semitic tweets to herself and her nazi friends. I hope she gets fired!
