A number of journalists and commentators on Twitter Monday attacked white men and “whiteness” in general after the shooting of over 50 people at a music festival in Las Vegas.

The suspect in the Las Vegas massacre is Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old white man. As of now, authorities have said that they do not know of any terror or political affiliations that Paddock may have.

Many liberal journalists used the horrific shooting to attack “white men.”
