This young Muslim woman broke down after this Q&A panellist’s CALLOUS response

In the midst of Q&A’s discussion on free speech, Zara Bilal, a young Australian Muslim woman, asked the panel how society and government should respond to hateful messages shared by US President Donald Trump via Twitter.

Most of the panellists offered a range of responses that condemned Trump’s actions, however Simon Breheny dismissed Bilal’s question, attempting to discuss US tax policy instead. Labor Party Senator Lisa Singh called Breheny out for his disrespectful question dodging, and Twitter was there to back her up.

Host Tony Jones attempted to steer the discussion back towards Bilal’s question, which led to this emotional response from the young woman.
