Two men were shot and killed on Sunday outside of an art exhibit displaying caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad organized by Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative.
Geller sat down with Fox News' Sean Hannity to discuss the threats she has received following the contest, but things took a turn when guest Juan Williams stepped in and accused Geller of "intentionally" provoking the shooting. "She's like a pyromaniac who goes before the judge and says, 'I was setting those fires just to see how fast the fire department could respond," he said.
Hannity immediately disagreed and criticized Williams for blaming the victim, who he implied was Geller.
"Sean, the victim is dead," Williams responded. "[Geller] intentionally was provocative in her actions."
"I'm provocative?" Geller shouted. "No, murdering cartoonists is provocative!"
"What I find galling is that my motives are continuously questioned by the media," she continued. "Not the jihadis' motive -- my motives!"
Williams went on to say that he believes Geller is involved for the purpose of "self-promotion."
