Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) tweeted out an image on April 19 wishing Jews a Happy Passover. The image included two loaves of leavened bread, which is not allowed to be eaten during the holiday.

Tlaib’s tweet stated, “Tonight marks the beginning of Passover! To all our Jewish sisters and brothers, Happy Pesach! I hope it is a time full of joy and love with family and friends.”

Tlaib was mocked for it:

Earlier in the day, the U.K. Labour Party tweeted out a similar Passover graphic with leavened bread; the tweet was later deleted.

Tlaib’s office did not respond to the Journal’s request for comment.

Tlaib is an avowed supporter of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and came under fire for accusing senators, who were in favor of an anti-BDS bill, of dual loyalty in January. She has also been criticized for her connections to an open Hezbollah supporter.
