The former co-host of ABC’s The View is under fire Tuesday for suggesting that the activist movement, Black Lives Matter, is a hate group. While interviewing writer Kevin Jackson for her show Fox and Friends, Elisabeth Hasselbeck asked Jackson, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified as a hate group? How much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”

Jackson, who is African-American answered, “Well they should do it, but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists…Ironically, it’s people that have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives.” This sparked anger and outrage to many people. Hasselbeck, a Conservative, is no stranger to controversy. Following the death of Sandra Bland, Hasselbeck suggested that Bland might have “threatened” the police and that’s what led her to her death.

Hours after making the comment, many celebrities expressed their feelings about the comment. Blogger Perez Hilton wrote, “Wow. This is so offensive it’s hard to know where to begin.”

Hasselbeck’s former co-host, Rosie O’Donnell, took to Twitter to express how she felt. “Some r slow to wake,” tweeted O’Donnell. She continued, “when r we going to declare Donald Trump as a hate group?”

    Elisabeth Hasselbeck is not only right, but Black Lives Matter should be classified as a domestic terrorist group.
    They are filled with hate and call for the killing of police officers.
    Their leaders should be arrested and their marches stopped.
    They are clearly trying to cause trouble and unrest in this country.
    It is time that this group does NOT matter.
    Police officers lives matter.
