In New York City, Yemeni bodega owners responded to the attacks against Congressmember Ilhan Omar by announcing they were boycotting the sale and purchase of the New York Post over its front-page attack on Omar. The Murdoch-owned daily paper featured an image of the burning Twin Towers on 9/11 referencing Omar’s comment out of context—”9/11 was 'some people did something'”—and the words “Here’s Your Something” in large print over the photo. The Yemeni American Merchants Association said the cover “provoked hatred” and targeted people of Muslim faith.
