Shortly after Instagram stars and sisters Claudia and Jackie Oshry were revealed to be the daughters of anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller, Claudias show The Morning Breath was canceled.
Claudia, who goes by “Girl With No Job,” boasts 2.8 million followers on Instagram and has drawn a millennial audience to the Oath show, which was launched last April as the latest in celebrity news, pop culture, and (every so often) business, tech and science.
After a Daily Beast article exposed her and her sisters as the daughters of Geller, who was banned from entering England in 2013 for her anti-Islamic rhetoric, Claudias now-deleted tweets were discovered.
#Obama is #muslim!!!! Ya I said it, she wrote in May 2012.
Theresa May says Trump is ‘wrong’ but U.S. relations will endure
I cant help but feel like Im funding terrorism when I take a cab, she tweeted in January 2014.
The Morning Breath, an Oath social-media show, is being canceled immediately and we have launched an internal investigation and will take other appropriate steps based on the results of the investigation, the company said in a statement.
Claudia, 23, issued a video apology late Wednesday.
Hi guys. Obviously need to address a lot of what happened today, but first and foremost, I just need to apologize. Some news broke this morning about who my mom is, and then some really disgusting, vile, stupid tweets of mine resurfaced. I need to just come right out and say how sorry I am. Its not cool, its not funny, she said in a teary Instagram video.
Trump tweets dont focus on me at wrong Theresa May
I was a dumb kid, I was 16, I thought I was being funny and cool on Twitter, and its not. Im not racist. I cant believe I even have to say that. But Im so sorry to anyone who read those tweets and had a reaction and was upset, because youre totally entitled to that reaction, but its so important for you guys to know that thats not who I am. And if you guys me the opportunity to show you who I am and what I stand for, I would be so grateful. But I understand that these things take time, and what I did was not okay, and Im so sorry.
Jackie, 25, goes by JackieOProblems, a popular Instagram account with 93.7 thousand followers, had similar racist comments on her Twitter.
Hi @POTUS, Can you reimburse me for all the cabs Im taking bc your piece shit of plan to defeat ISIS makes me scared to take the subway? Ty, she wrote in 2015.
She issued her own apology Wednesday.
Trump ripped by Theresa May for tweeting anti-Muslim video
I want to express my utmost, sincere apologies for the indefensible comments that Ive said in the past, she said in a statement on Instagram.
That is not a reflection of who I am as a person today and I am truly sorry to everyone Ive offended and let down. All I can do now is reflect and learn from this experience by showing everyone the good that is in my heart.
