Daily Beast targets young Instagram stars once it’s discovered their mom is a famous conservative ‘provocateur’

The young stars and creators of an online talk show have been fired after the Daily Beast shamed them for past anti-Obama tweets and the fact that their mother is a conservative pundit.

Sisters Claudia, Jackie, Olivia and Margo Oshry were accused by the liberal publication of going to “great lengths” to  cover up that their mother is Pamela Geller, allegedly trying to hide that fact from their combined 3.3 million Instagram followers, Fox News reported.

“The Instagram-famous family have gone to great lengths to conceal the identity of their Islamophobic mother,” the Daily Beast wrote. “[Their mother is an] anti-Islam activist, hate-monger, and diehard Trump supporter.”

Geller, president of Stop Islamization of America, has been a controversial figure with her strong political views. She made headlines in 2015 when two gunmen were killed after attempting an attack on the “Draw the Prophet Muhammad” contest in Garland, Texas, which she organized.

Claudia, who started the Instagram account “Girl with No Job,” and her sister Jackie co-hosted “The Morning Breath,” an online morning show on Oath.

“‘The Morning Breath,’ an Oath social media show, is being canceled immediately and we have launched an internal investigation and will take other appropriate steps based on the results of the investigation,” an Oath representative told Fox News in a statement.

The Daily Beast article also cited past tweets from a then-teenage Claudia.

“Listening to Obama talk about ISIS is like listening to me talk about quantum physics,” and sister Jackie wrote, “Hi @POTUS, Can you reimburse me for all the cabs I’m taking bc your piece of s— plan to defeat ISIS makes me scared to take the subway? [Thank you],” she posted in one tweet from 2015.

The 23-year-old issued a statement on Wednesday, according to Fox News:

“We want to be clear to our audience and fans that our political and cultural beliefs are not anti-Muslim or anti-anyone. Our views are separate from our mother’s. Being raised by a single parent, we were taught to make our own choices based on our personal beliefs. We are inspired to think for ourselves and we do. We do not condone discrimination or racist beliefs of any kind.”

She also posted an emotional video apologizing for the past tweets and asking fans to give her “the opportunity to show you who I am and what I stand for.”

“I just need to apologize,” she said in an Instagram video. “Some news was broke this morning about who my mom is and then some really disgusting, vile, stupid tweets of mine resurfaced. I need to just come right out and say how sorry I am. It’s not cool, it’s not funny. I was a dumb kid. I was 16 [and] I thought I was being funny and cool on Twitter and it’s not. I’m not racist. I can’t believe I even have to say that.”

Her sister Jackie also posted to Instagram on Thursday, saying her past tweets were “not a reflection” of who she is.

“I want to express my utmost, sincere apologies for the indefensible comments that I’ve said in the past. That is not a reflection of who I am as a person today and I am truly sorry to everyone I’ve offended and let down. All I can do now is reflect and learn from this experience by showing everyone the good that is in my heart,” she shared.

Conservative Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich called the Beast article ‘disgusting’ for targeting the young women over their mother’s political beliefs.

Many fans expressed their support for the sisters despite the decision by Oath to pull their show.
