After tweeting (then deleting) an anti-Semitic meme on Wednesday, Al Jazeera apologized and called the post an error.
“This is not AJE image but a reply to an old thread that was mistakenly linked,” Al Jazeera English tweeted. “We apologise for the error.”
The image was originally tweeted on Wednesday to promote a story about climate change.
Al Jazeera later deleted the post, but Twitter user Eli Meixler quickly took a screenshot.
