On The View's Monday episode, Women's March co-founder Tamika Mallory refused to condemn anti-semitic comments made by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Controversy about the March's leadership has been swirling for months, including a deep dive by Tablet Magazine on alleged anti-semitic comments made during the early meetings that led to 2017's historic march. Mallory has appeared alongside Farrakhan at Nation of Islam events and has referred to him as the GOAT (greatest of all time). Another March co-founder, Linda Sarsour, has faced similar criticism.
View co-host Meghan McCain asked Mallory, who appeared alongside March co-founder Bob Bland, to condemn Farrakhan's comments, including "I’m not anti-Semite, I’m anti-termite.”
The blowback from the controversy has led several local chapters to cancel their planned marches, citing difficulties in raising funds, along with concerns over what was "coming out of national." A new group, March On, is planning separate events.
