Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker has canceled a fundraiser for his campaign that was set to be hosted by a conservative filmmaker whose Twitter profile picture was until recently a swastika made up of syringes.
Walker’s campaign said in a Wednesday statement to The Hill that the event will no longer be held at the Texas home of Bettina Sofia Viviano-Langlais. The cancellation came shortly after the campaign denied that the filmmaker’s Twitter picture was in fact a swastika.
The article goes on to state the following:
“The previously scheduled event has been called off. Herschel is a strong friend of Israel and the Jewish community and opposes hatred and bigotry of all forms. Despite the fact that the apparent intent behind the graphic was to condemn government vaccine mandates, the symbol used is very offensive and does not reflect the values of Herschel Walker or his campaign,” spokesperson Mallory Blount said.
Walker’s campaign initially responded to the criticism by calling the logo “clearly an anti-mandatory vaccination graphic” and disavowing any connection to antisemitism or bigotry of any kind.

Viviano has since changed her profile photo to a “God Blessed Texas” flag sign after deleting the swastika of needles, which she also used to respond to stories on Biden’s vaccine mandates.
