Mollie Tibbetts' Cousin Slams Right-Wing Commentator for Using Tragic Death to Push Anti-Immigrant Agenda: 'Stop Being a F*cking Snake'

Conservative opportunists have pounced upon the apparent murder of Mollie Tibbetts to stir up anti-immigrant sentiment. But Tibbetts' cousin is firing back at one prominent pundit who sent out a particularly disgusting tweet.


"Leftists boycotted, screamed, and cried when illegal immigrants were temporarily separated from from (sic) their parents," conservative commentator Candace Owens tweeted. "What will they do for Mollie Tibbetts? What did they do for Kate Steinle? They will NEVER see their parents again."

Mollie's self-identified cousin Sam tweeted at Owens to "stop being a f*cking snake" using Tibbetts' death as "political propaganda."

Sam said that Tibbetts' family is not so "small-minded that we generalize a whole population based on some bad individuals."

She also tweeted that the "despicable" Owens was "so far from the loving and kind soul" Tibbetts represented.

Sam told another heartless tweeter that Tibbetts' family doesn't "want the discourse around Mollie’s death to be a political statement."
