Emgage Action Condemns MSNBC Host Joy Ann Reid’s Islamophobic Comments

September 8, 2020

Washington, D.C.- MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid claimed that “Muslim leaders…talk a lot of violent talk and encourage their supporters…to commit violence.” She further compared “the way Muslims act” to Trump and his followers.

“Reid’s flippant statements are Islamophobic, and stoke hate by generalizing billions of Muslims as ‘violent.’ We are calling upon Reid to apologize and retract her statements, immediately.” -Wa’el Alzayat, CEO of Emgage Action

Emgage Action is a Muslim civic advocacy organization, with national headquarters in Washington, D.C., and state chapters in Michigan, Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and New York.
