Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Somalian refugee who has taken a lot of backlash for her controversial remarks about the 9/11 terror attack in recent months, posted a statement Wednesday morning on Twitter in a tribute to the 18th anniversary of the attack.

Omar wrote, “September 11th was an attack on all of us. We will never forget the thousands of Americans who lost their lives in the largest terror attack on U.S. soil. I will continue to fight to make sure we care for the first responders and families who lost loved ones. #NeverForget.”

One Twitter user shared a video of Omar’s comments, in which she dismissed the 9/11 terror attack as “Some people did something,” and said CAIR was founded after 9/11 to stand up for Muslims who were losing their civil rights after the attack.

“We Will Never Forget This either … God Bless America 🇺🇸,” he wrote.

Former police officer Brandon Tatum responded, “We see right through you like a piece of glass. You owe us all an apology for that some people did something comment.”

While speaking at the 9/11 ceremonies in New York Wednesday morning, one man who lost his mother in the terror attack, Nicholas Haros, Jr., slammed Omar for her “Some people did something” statement.  Haros wore a t-shirt with the statement on the front, then blasted Omar, saying, “We are here today congresswoman to tell you and ‘the squad’ just who did what to whom. Show respect in honoring them, please.”

Journalist Miek Cernovich posted an article with a reminder of the time Omar asked for a more lenient sentence for Somalian refugees in Minnesota who were found guilty of trying to join ISIS.

Another Twitter user slammed Omar, as she shared a chilling audio of a 911 call that came in about one of the planes being hijacked on that fateful day. “You have no right to comment today. Your platitudes fall on deaf ears,” she wrote to Omar.
