The Washington Post's opinions editor has been accused of inciting violence after posting her inflammatory tweet on Sunday. There are calls for her to be fired, but The Post has not publicly responded  

The Washington Post's opinions editor has been accused of inciting violence for tweeting that white women are 'lucky' black people are 'just calling them Karen's and not calling for revenge'. 

Karen Attiah posted the tweet on Sunday, saying: 'The lies and tears of white women hath wrought; the 1921 Tulsa massacre, murder of Emmett Till, exclusion of black women from feminist movements, 53% of white women voting for Trump. 

'White women are lucky that we are just calling them Karens. And not calling for revenge.'  

Later, in her comments section, she doubled down on the remark, saying: 'I'm just saying. Be happy we are calling for equality. And not actual revenge.' 

The tweets sparked outrage from other users who called for her to be fired. 

'Oh so insulting generalizations based on race and gender are okay now? Or are they only okay for you? Just trying to understand the rules,' conservative writer Matt Walsh replied to Attia.  

'You threaten white women with violence. WashPo what is your response? The world is watching and waiting,' another tweeted. 

Soon after, the hashtag #fireKarenAttiah began circulating on Twitter.  

As of Tuesday morning, the newspaper has not publicly commented on Attiah's incendiary remark. 

Washington Post opinions editor Karen Attiah tweeted on Sunday that white women were 'lucky' black people were calling them 'Karen's and not calling for revenge'

Washington Post opinions editor Karen Attiah tweeted on Sunday that white women were 'lucky' black people were calling them 'Karen's and not calling for revenge' 

'Karen' is a derogatory term being given to entitled, white women who are caught on camera or video trying to assert themselves over people of color in social situations. 

Many people called out Attiah over the irony that her first name is also Karen.  

After widespread outrage, Attiah deleted her tweet - but she insinuated that it was not because she regretted her remarks. 

She retweeted another user who stated: 'When I tweet something and then delete it, it's not because I regret it. It's almost never that. I just want to say some s**t real quick and then leave.'

'Same. Lol,' Attiah wrote above that message

Thats they want , they want her to apologise to massa, but if she does what does that make her or look like, and how many will stand with her? Remember Kaepernick how many negros stood with him, they couldnt miss a football game instead of boycott the NFL, niggers are the worse enemy, black people do the hard work niggers benefit from it and white people get to have their ways, let see who will stand with her for speaking the truth

So it's okay for the leader of our country to incite violence, but U coming for this women's neck? Stand behind this women at all costs. No more bowing down to the cave dwellers. All of them need to be put on front street.

Thats what we need those who stands up and not afraid to speak up or some lousy job, those who are running around bragging how they have white friends or they only date whites, they make it okay for white people to continue the hateful behavior or turn the other way like nothing happen, i hear negros saying or it was a long time a go when we talk about slavery they repeat the same thing racist white people tell them, dumb niggers we need people who are not afraid to speak up not like those house niggers like Don lemon sucking white dicks on CNN for that chump change they are paying him

Oh, please she did not say black women should or black people should put their hands and. White women, but that old white woman got b**** slapped for calling that black woman the N, word. Black people are not that stupid, we use the internet to call them out, watch them get fired, look stupid.
