Esor Fasa, the leftist activist referenced below in the original story, has deleted her entire Twitter account in wake of heavy criticism for the video showing her "best friend" verbally attacking Chelsea Clinton.
Caleb Hull, however, was able to save the original video showing the altercation. It can be found here:
Here's the video that @Esor__Fasa put up where her friend is attacking Chelsea Clinton at a memorial service and linking her to the New Zealand massacre because Chelsea dared to call out Ilhan Omar's anti-Semitism.— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) March 16, 2019

Chelsea Clinton attended an interfaith vigil in memory of the 49 Muslim souls slain in yesterday's terror attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, but students at New York University lashed out at Clinton right to her face after feeling "uncomfortable" with her presence because, in their minds, she deserves blame for the tragedy because her previous condemnation of Rep. Ilhan Omar's antisemitic remarks are tantamount to supporting Islamophobia which encouraged the terrorist attack.
A twitter user by the name of Esor_Fasa first posted, "
@ChelseaClinton is here at the NYU vigil right now. A lot of students feel uncomfortable. People haven’t forgotten the Islamophobic mob she incited against @IlhanMN. There is no sense of responsibility."

Esor is referring to Clinton's rebuke of Rep. Omar's criticism of Israel and the lobbying group AIPAC because of her use of anti-Semitic tropes and questionable rhetoric.
Co-signed as an American. We should expect all elected officials, regardless of party, and all public figures to not traffic in anti-Semitism.— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) February 11, 2019
Esor, who describes herself as a "Jewish leftist, organizer & known in alt-right circles as 'antifa chick R*se.;" then posted a video of her "best friend" lashing into Clinton, telling the pregnant mother that "it’s a disgrace that she came to the vigil, calling out Chelsea’s Islamophobia and hypocrisy."
The video posted starts with Clinton telling Viva in reference to her supposed "Islamophobic remarks", "I am so sorry...It certainly was never my intention..I do believe that words matter...I think we have to show solidarity..." The student then interrupts her and says, "They do matter...and this, this [vigil] right here, is the result of a massacre stoked by people like you and the words you put out into the world, and I want you to know that and I want you to feel that deep inside. 49 people died because of the rhetoric that you put out there."
A contemplative and patient Clinton begins to say, "I am so sorry you feel that way..." before the cameraman or somebody off screen yells, "What does that mean? Like, what does "I'm sorry you feel that way mean?"
The Washington Examiner's Siraj Hashmi responded to the video, saying, "this is absolute horsesh*t. chelsea clinton calling out ilhan omar’s anti-semitism is not islamophobia and blaming her for christchurch is completely uncalled for. i’m muslim and i thought omar crossed the line into anti-semitism."
"Muslims need allies," Hashmi said. "This video ain't it, chief," he added.
