NYT Defends Mara Gay’s ‘Disturbing’ American Flags Statement. Social Media Pounds Them.


On Tuesday night, after New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay was heavily criticized for her remarks in which she stated that seeing “dozens of American flags” was “disturbing” and that “tens of millions of Trump voters” “see ‘American-ness’ as the same as one with ‘whiteness,’” the Times defended her by claiming her words were taken out of context, prompting an incendiary reaction on social media.

The Times tweeted, “New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay’s comments on MSNBC have been irresponsibly taken out of context. Her argument was that Trump and many of his supporters have politicized the American flag. The attacks on her today are ill-informed and grounded in bad faith.”
