Jemele Hill, a staff writer at The Atlantic, tweeted Tuesday that instead of shouting “whose mans is this”, as one tweet suggested, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) should shout “GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET.” “GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET” is a reference to the assassination of Malcolm X by three Nation of Islam members in 1965. The phrase was shouted just before he was killed with a double-barrel shotgun and a handguns. Hill was subsequently criticized for making the reference: Before joining The Atlantic, Hill was an anchor at ESPN before leaving after receiving the ire of management after tweeting, “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists.” [Featured image via screengrab]
