The Sacramento Bee has apologized for an opinion piece in which writer Hannah Holzer claimed that Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk “called for the lynching of trans people,” following Antifa violence at Tuesday evening’s Live Free Tour stop at University of California Davis.

“An earlier version of this column included a statement that Charlie Kirk had ‘called for the lynching of trans people.’ The basis for this accusation is a video clip in which Kirk was upset that a trans woman had won an NCAA swimming championship,” an editor’s note from Wednesday morning read. 

“In the clip, Kirk said that instead of letting the woman compete, ‘Someone should have took (sic) care of it the way we used to take care of things in the 1950s and 60s.’ Some trans advocates on social media extrapolated from Kirk’s comments that he called for trans people to be lynched – an accusation The Bee repeated,” the note continued.

The Bee regrets its comments and we apologize for any misunderstanding this earlier version may have caused,” the note concluded.
