CNN Reporter Deletes Tweet After Calling Nearby Israelis ‘Scum’

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.

    Israel should ban all CNN staff from the country.

  18. Debbie Woods says:

    Should be suspended without pay for thirty days. Might think twice before she tweets stupidly again. Or maybe transfer her to Syria since she’s anti-semitic!

  19. CNN is bias.
    Wolf Blitzer didn’t stop to ask about the 4 boys killed.
    How in the world in a war I would leave my children playing outside .
    11.000 children died in Syria and they didnt not show to much outraged .

    Launch her to Gaza and let her see who the scum is! She doesn’t know the constant threat that Gazan terrorists have put on Serdot and the other border towns. She doesn’t have relatives or friends who were murdered, kidnapped, or raped, and bombed by these Hamas and Pali’s. Shame on her! She is unprofessional and should keep her anti semitic tweets to herself and her nazi friends. I hope she gets fired!

  26. Kim Sloan says:
