One of the co-founders of the #BlackLivesMatter network spoke to HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill Wednesday about Bill O’Reilly’s accusation that the group is a George Soros-funded collection of “fringe nuts who run around the country saying crazy things.”

 

“I watched it and was mortified,” Patrisse Cullors said. “What’s unfortunate about Bill O’Reilly is that it’s pundits like him that fuel anti-black racism. It’s pundits like him that allow for folks like Dylann Roof to get more ammunition.”

 

“I think we need to hold him accountable,” she added, because “on the one hand we can laugh about it, but on the other hand folks are really watching that and taking that as real news.”
