“Trans Day Of Vengeance” Cancelled Over Safety Concerns

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.6

The “Trans Day of Vengeance” rally scheduled for Saturday in Washington, D.C., in front of the U.S. Supreme Court has been cancelled by the organizers, citing “credible threat to life and safety” concerns.  The group claims it received a “flood of raw hatred” after Monday’s shooting at a Christian school in Nashville by a woman who identified as transgender, but that the shooting had nothing to do with the concept of “vengeance” promoted by the group. The group said that they will hold an online event and will make plans for “another protest with a better theme” in the future.  After Monday’s shooting, Twitter removed more than 5,000 tweets with the “Trans Day of Vengeance” poster, concerned that it could incite violence.
