The Associated Press edited the words of a Muslim man who allegedly killed three white people in downtown Fresno Tuesday afternoon and shouted “Allahu Akbar!”

The suspect, 39-year-old Kori Ali Muhammad, holds fervent anti-Trump beliefs according to his social media profile, and he told police afterward that he hates white people. 

Rather than reporting the gunman’s literal words, however, the AP reported the gunman as saying “God is great.”

On Twitter, the AP’s report gave no indication that the suspect’s words were said in Arabic.

The AP took flack on Twitter for the edits, which some said was meant to downplay the shooter’s ties to Islam.


The AP’s story on the shooting noted that Muhammed said the words in Arabic, but still reported it as “God is great” instead of “Allahu Akbar.”
