Maggie Haberman of The New York Times suggested the boys need to be expelled from school. Ana Navarro of CNN called the boys racist and ass wipes and then went after their teachers and their parents. Others call for violence against them. CNN legal analyst Bakari Sellers suggested one of the boys should be, quote, “Punched in the face”. Former CNN contributor Reza Aslan agreed. Aslan asked on Twitter this: “Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?”
Longtime CNN contributor Kathy Griffin seemed to encourage a mob to rise up and hurt these boys. Quote: “Name these kids. I want names. Shame them. If you think these f-ers wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat, think again.” Then she repeated her demand again later. Quote: “Names please. And stories from people who can identify them and vouch for their identity. Thank you.”
Hollywood film producer Jack Morrissey tweeted that he wanted the boys killed. Quote: “MAGA kids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.” And then he paired that with a graphic photo. Actor Patton Oswalt linked to personal information about one of the boys, in case anyone wanted to get started on that project.
