Despite getting widespread criticism from the progressive Twittersphere, Omar, however, isn’t backing down from her reasoned position that these types of doxing stories are just meant as targeted harassment.

“You all are entitled to your opinions,” Omar replied to critics, “but my opinion remains the same. These kinds of stories ruin people’s lives and are uncalled for.”
