Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) posted a video Sunday to her Twitter account from an event over the weekend where she was jeered by many attendees, but the clip was only a few seconds long and cut out the widespread boos that lasted for more than a minute.
Omar was booed as she stepped on stage at a Suldaan Seeraar concert at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday night. It was the musician’s first time performing in North America. Some in the audience told her to “go home” and “get the f*** out of here.”
As videos from the incident went viral on social media Sunday afternoon, Omar posted two tweets from the event.
The first tweet was a picture of her on stage with the musician. “Welcome to Minneapolis Sultan,” she wrote.
The second tweet was a short video clip of her stepping on stage in which she cut the footage right when the booing started. “It was an honor to welcome you to our incredible city,” Omar wrote in that tweet.
As Omar was introduced on stage with her husband, the crowd began to boo loudly.
Some other performers on stage told the audience, “don’t do this,” as they continued to boo Omar.
“Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, we don’t have all night,” Omar said as the crowd kept booing.
