White House Staffer Tyler Cherry Apologizes Over Controversial Tweets

(DailyVantage.com) – A newly appointed communications staffer at the White House has been the focus of a social media frenzy after it was discovered that he had put up multiple tweets in the past that reflected extremist leftist views.

Tyler Cherry, who recently at the White House’s communications team as an associate communications director with a focus on the government’s climate agenda, had multiple posts that were described as antisemitic, along with posts that condemned police and called them “slave patrols.” The tweets reportedly date back to 2014 and 2015.

However, Cherry has since deleted all his posts on Twitter prior to 2022, but a number of people were able to take screenshots of many of them. Cherry has also addressed the hubbub surround his past posts, saying that he posted them when he was “younger” and those views “do not reflect my current views.”

“I support this Administration’s agenda,” he added.

Other past tweets included calls for the abolition of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), and called the police force “a direct evolution of slave patrols and lynch mobs.”

Senior adviser to conservative organization America 2100 and writer Nate Hochman also pointed out that Cherry had also deleted all tweets that contained the word “white” in them, claiming that he had hundreds before. Hochman posted a number of screenshots showing Cherry disparaging “white people” and “white men” on multiple occasions.

Since the tweets’ resurfacing, there have been calls for Cherry’s resignation or termination. StopAntisemitism, an antisemitism watchdog, has called on the Biden administration to terminate Cherry over his tweets, calling the hiring of the staffer “horrifying.”

“We’re hoping this is the quickest hire and fire scenario in President Biden’s administration to date,” Liora Rez, StopAntisemitism’s founder said.

Before his current position, Cherry worked for three years in the Interior Department under Secretary Deb Haaland, where he served as communications director.
