The State Department announced Thursday that it will review evidence that came to its attention of anti-Semitic and anti-American sentiments allegedly made by an Egyptian woman on Twitter before presenting her with an award.

Samira Ibrahim was to have received an International Women of Courage Award along with 9 other women on Friday. She claims her Twitter account was hacked when the inappropriate tweets were sent out, the Washington Times reports:

“We as a department became aware very late in the process about Samira Ibrahim’s alleged public comments,” Mrs. Nuland said. “After careful consideration, we’ve decided that we should defer presenting this award to Ms. Ibrahim this year so that we have a chance to look further into these statements.”

Mrs. Nuland added that Mrs. Ibrahim “has categorically denied” to the State Department that she wrote the unsavory messages and claimed that “she was hacked” by someone else who made the remarks on her behalf.

“But we need some time and, in order to be prudent, to conduct our own review,” Mrs. Nuland said.

According to reporter Nicole Gaoulette, State Department officials believe Ibrahim’s denial.

“State officials tell me they’ve looked at 1000s of her tweets & believe her account was hacked,” Gaoulette tweeted on Thursday.
