Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) has promoted at least four racially charged hoaxes or debunked stories on Twitter in 2019 and failed to issue statements retracting or correcting her comments.
The most recent example: the case of Amari Allen, a black 12-year-old girl in Virginia who claimed three white boys in her class pinned her down and cut off her dreadlocks. Allen has since recanted the story, but Tlaib has not issued a correction or deleted her tweet praising Allen as “courageous & strong” and having a “power that threatens their core.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The activist Tlaib retweeted apologized for spreading the story after Allen recanted her charge, but Tlaib didn’t share the apology or offer her own contrition.
The Beacon cites three additional times Tlaib “shared racially charged, viral stories that fell apart or were strongly challenged”:
- Tlaib seemed to have prejudged the Covington Catholic incident in January at the Lincoln Memorial. “This is so hard to watch. It reminds us of the growing hate & oppression we are all up against. #TakeOnHate,” Tlaib tweeted.
- Tlaib shared a Jan 30 GQ article headlined, “The Racist,Homophobic Attack on Jussie Smollett Is Far-Right America’s Endgame.” Tlaib wrote in a tweet: “The dangerous lies spewing from the right-wing is killing & hurting our people. Thinking of you @JussieSmollett, and my LGBTQ neighbors.”
- A black Georgia Democratic lawmaker claimed a white man told her to “go back” where she came from during a public disagreement. Tlaib tweeted, “You are loved. You are loved. You are loved. You are loved.” The story unraveled soon after going viral, and Thomas backtracked amid eyewitness statements and video evidence.

You are beautiful, Amari Allen. You are courageous & strong. You are loved.
You see, Amari, you may not feel it now, but you have a power that threatens their core. I can’t wait to watch you use it and thrive.
Stay strong. https://t.co/57rtAYby3h

It’s been reported that Amari Allen, a black student who attends Immanuel Christian School, has admitted her allegations made against 3 white classmates weren’t true. I’m extending my apology to the accused white children, parents, school & public for fueling false accusations. https://t.co/INZzFZ4qvN pic.twitter.com/uVU0spaLCM

“When one of the most famous black and gay men in America is not safe, the message is clearer than it has ever been.” The dangerous lies spewing from the right wing is killing & hurting our people.
